Last month we did Paul, but this time the interviewer has become the interviewee. It's Justin's turn in the hot seat, and he pulls no punches in talking about the sad, self-loathing nerd he used to be, and the bizarre path that led him to fitness and, to some extent, emotional health.

We all know Paul, but do we REALLY know Paul? In this episode we do a deep dive into Paul Austad's past, his childhood in Minnesota, what brought him to LA, and the experiences that made him who he is. It's one of the most refreshingly honest conversations we've had yet. Also, fill-in cohost Dayvora has another fitness tip for you.

Coach Day Ortega (and her daughter/sidekick Dejah) stop by the podcast to talk about her own "path to wellness," and her new program to help keep others on the right track, even when things on the fitness journey can get a little weird. Oh yeah, Wes is missing this episode. :(

Sorry for taking an unexpected month off, but we're back! Our guests this month, Tim and Annie Dove are OG CrossFit Merge people, and have been with Nela since Paul bought the place four years ago. In a remarkably candid conversation, they talk about their past, their experiences at the old box, and what it was like to have a "giant corporation" take over your gym. (Especially when that Giant Corporation is literally Paul.) Don't miss this one, it's a good one!

It's the middle of the Open, that glorious time of year when CrossFitters all compete doing the same workouts to test their strength. And speaking of strength, one of our longest-running and most-working-out-est members Chester Reyes stops by to talk about his experiences, and how he recovers from working out so damned much.
