Thanks for checking out the Paleo Treats podcast!  This is a show started by Nik from Paleo Treats back in 2014 in order to share conversations I was having with a larger audience.

Inspired by the feedback I had gotten from going on the SOFREP podcast, I decided to have Paleo Treats give it a go with our own show.

This is mostly a list of friends of mine, along with a few folks I haven't met in person but respect and wanted to share their story with you.

The show is based mostly on the pursuit of excellence, so whether we're talking to a fly fishing writer, a NASCAR reporter, a wildland firefighter, or a world class rock climber, that's the theme we start with and generally stick to.

I don't plan on getting rich or famous with this show (that's what Paleo Treats is for), but if you do want to support us then head over to the Paleo Treats website and pick up a box of the best gluten free desserts on the planet.

Thanks for listening!

Upon getting back into rock climbing after a 17 year hiatus, I quickly discovered Mark & Mike Anderson's contribution to training for the sport in the form of The Rock Climber's Training Manual.

After reading through it I realized that these guys were demonstrating more than just an interest in training, this is total "pursuit of excellence" material.  

In this episode of the Paleo Treats podcast we talk about where they learned about hard work, why climbing satisfies so many human cravings, and what stops most climbers from becoming better.

This is definitely not a "sets and reps" episode; if you're looking for specific training advice, buy the book.  :)  However, if you're looking for practical examples of what works to improve anything, not just climbing, you'll find enough in here to inspire and encourage you to do the very best you can in whatever endeavor you engage in.

Enjoy!
