This week we have my friend Nick Hardwick on the podcast!

Nick is truly one of the most amazing men that I have come in contact with. We have so much in common and are so aligned in our mission. Nick played center for the San Diego Charger for 11 years and he is someone I looked up to during my playing days. He has some incredible stories about his athletic journey and how he has navigated life since retirement. I know you’re going to love this one! 

In this episode, we discussed:

  • Nick’s incredible athletic journey in high school and college
  • How he knew it was time to walk away from the NFL 
  • How Nick shedded weight so quickly when he stopped playing football
  • Recalibrating our goals… Checking in with your “why”
  • The dramatic physiological changes that can take place in the body when your athletic career ends and tools to combat CTE 
  • Finding new meaning and purpose when football is over
  • Nick’s vision for himself and for the future
