Interview with Aaron Gwin

I’m in Long Beach today at the Perform Better 3 Day Functional Training Summit and so I can’t get a new post up but I came across this interview I did with the newly crowned World Cup Champ about a year ago when we were still working together. Aaron has succeeded as quickly as he has because he does a lot of things the right way and there is some great advice from him in this interview about what it takes to go from bro to pro in record time…

It is a rather short 15 minute interview so you can easily listen to it here but if you want to download the MP3 file you can download it here –

    Not in any way trying to attack you, but I can’t remember seeing a post about the split-up, I read somewhere else Aaron Gwin now works with John Tomac. So what happened, did he feel he needed to add another element to his training? In my view you can always pat yourself on the back: you probably helped him to lay down a solid foundation, now enabling him to win several world cups in a row!

      There wasn’t really anything to post – Aaron had a chance to work with someone closer to home so he could get more hands on work. Tomac is overseeing his training and he is currently working with Ryan Hughes on his strength training (who does a lot of similar stuff to what I did with him) since Ryan lives near him and Aaron can go to his gym.

      Obviously I would have liked to see him all the way to the top but it was an amicable split, we’re still friends and he knows he can hit me up if he ever needs help with something in the future. It was great to work with him and be part of his meteoric rise and I’d like to think that the foundation we laid over the 3+ years we worked together played a role in his past and current success. I’m super stoked for him since I saw firsthand his drive and dedication, he deserves everything he has earned this year.
