You are now listening to the project Kuwait project Kuwait, project Kuwait, where we stop at nothing to bring you the right backs on health, fitness and psychology, featuring some of the world's most experienced professionals. So you can learn and play with your hosts make them dirty, and messy.
Learning how to communicate, when you can't speak the same language, how to still get your point across is so helpful. When I came back to the states and started coaching again, just that level of confidence of like, hey, if I can coach someone that doesn't speak my language, how to move better, how to have a right attitude in a workout, how to live a healthy lifestyle, it brought a huge amount of confidence back over and I feel like I grown. Yeah, you know, 10 x times making communication harder, almost made communicating easier.
They are very communal, and they live so closely with one another of like, what they provide, like the trading and the skills and how they can help each other out. It's just so well connected. That was like an enlightening experience. I'm sure lockup It was also that ability to connect with other people is always like such a great measure of health. And I think that community aspect is so important, like looking at how happy they were having like so little.
All this and more in today's episode.

Try to keep it a little mysterious for sure. A little unknown.
The name that this app for that we're recording on gave him the name of inventive Moonwalker, we should change it to elusive Moonwalker, maybe
I'll take that. But I do like the invented moonwalk in my that could be a new handle somewhere.
So for those that don't know, Brad, Brad and I grew up in our fitness journey at CrossFit Omaha. We went through the level one cert together did our internship right around the same time learning from some of the best fitness coaches in the CrossFit industry. At that time. I didn't jump into coaching classes as quickly as Brad did. I worked more on the operation side of the gym, social media retail, which is where I got the connections to come to Kuwait working for circuit plus. and recruiting for Kuwait isn't easy. A lot of people know this, but I tapped into my network. And, Brad, do you remember the timeline of you coming out? Because I just remember being like, yeah, you should come travel the world. Yalla.
