[00:00] Welcome to episode two of the trulabs podcast. Speaker today. David. David, can you say what’s up? Yeah, true that the part of the name or the reason that we’ve got the name is because of David and his wife Mckayla’s. So cool. Cool Story to tell him about that.

[00:21] We were just texting each other and thrown out every idea that came to our mind. And uh, I thought, I think you were the one that throughout the name trulabs

[00:32] came up with the name, but I needed 40 years old. My wife, 38.

[00:36] You need the millennial view. And uh, and I, I liked, I think it originally was there an e at the end of it, was it tru, tru. He version was so much better. Well, and I think the, the whole concept was try to get a name that encompasses the, the meaning of the company and the culture of the company and everything that you guys are doing with testing every ingredient and living this lifestyle. It’s true, it’s honest. It’s effective. So it made sense to me when trulabs ¬†through itself onto that text message that that’s what the company’s all about.

[01:22] It wants to be known as the best and most innovative work out in the world and will will accept nothing but no. But what’s so cool is that we know we, we’ve had women who could take our stuff, who could take other stuff because of the way that we. We tested our method testing every original ingredient in the body to make sure that every ingredient, not like the whole formula, but every day that goes into form. And so obviously if you start with really good building blocks, then the entire of the entire project comes out even better. You know, the foundation. If the foundation is more solid, the workout supplement will be a better product.

[02:11] You’ve said before 90 something percent of pre workouts are marketed to just men and are taken by just men. And I don’t know if that’s a direct correlation with what they’re putting in the pre workout. But for me, you know, I never took pre workout because I was honestly afraid of it because I thought it would just Jack your body up and create something that was unnatural to make you work harder and I would never have thought that long term that’s going to be a good effect. CrossFit. Yeah. Yeah. I was. I was never. I was never on board with the whole lifestyle that I have to wake up at 5:00 AM every morning and beat up my body and I was just like, I just don’t know if it’s worth.

[03:00] It’s hard. It’s hard. But you know what discipline. I think once you get to the other side of discipline, Aka hard work, there’s such a reward that comes with it. And if you, if you try to just ease your way through life, it feels like, hey josh, go grab a headset. Don’t think we get more. We can plug in. But if you try to ease your way through life, it’s not as rewarding. Once you do that work and once you put in the effort and once you have the right training partners and the right coaching and the right supplements, it’s like it’s so rewarding.

[03:37] Yeah. I think it’s really special to a in any area of your life, whether it’s physical, emotional, spiritual, where you can have long obedience in the same direction. There’s nothing fancy that we’re really doing every single day, but when those days build up and become a year in two years and you look back and you’re physically in CrossFit, able to do things that you couldn’t have done a year ago, that’s super rewarding and when you do that with your business or you do that, you know, spiritually you look back a year ago and say, I’m so much closer to God than I was last year and I’m able to hear more clearly and things are making more sense to me. It’s rewarding not in the day, in the daily struggle because the daily struggle kind of sucks. You know, I don’t, I don’t want to wake up at 6:00 AM every day, but

[04:30] yeah, I don’t do that. No. A midnight late night, uh, we watched a movie last night. Oh, we watched the matrix, the matrix. Maverick. Maverick was like, dad, why is he doing? Why is he putting that thing in his. I don’t understand. Right? Yeah. I mean, you remember the whole kind of freaked them out. Um, but then I was like, you know, you kind of solve with Psi Phi at the end. Um, it was kind of interesting to see the reaction. I get

[05:20] sleep. Well, we’re all just a part of the matrix.

[05:22] Yeah, don’t have nightmares.

[05:25] You never know if you’re going to wake up in the tub. Completely bald.

[05:29] Yeah, it was pretty wild. So, uh, basically what you’re telling me is we’re going to see mass shootings. Josh, I’m trying to fit you in on here. It’s not working yet.

[05:48] Can you just mind everything and we’ll, we’ll try to interpret what you’re saying.

[05:52] Yeah, no. Here, I’m going to switch headsets over. Josh, we’re professionals. We got this down. Right. Hold on. So you guys were just talking about training for her drive.

[06:08] Yeah. We were talking about the kind of the daily grind that I think in all areas of life it takes a daily decision to do something that you don’t really want to do. A quote that I love is a do today, what others won’t, so you can do tomorrow what others can’t, and I think that’s true of of all aspects of life. If you do today what others aren’t willing to do tomorrow, you’ll do what they can’t do.

[06:47] I have a question.

[06:49] So the elite CrossFit athletes, how, how many times a day do they work out on average is three. Is it three? Is it four?

[07:04] That’s so crazy guys. Guys or girls are a little bit different. They’re not doing the normal one hour session,

[07:16] so they beat the body up, recover for two hours and then do it again.

[07:33] Yeah man.

[07:46] And he loves it or does he not love it?

[07:54] There’s a normal CrossFitters and old people. They just go into the gym and workout for an hour, probably two hours. Most of the time that we’re doing to be fair screwing around, stretching, stretching, stretching. We’re just kind of laying out. We we are a little bit different. One back they like, yeah, we want to grind, grind, grind, and all of us are probably just to do that, but

[08:39] the average person and CrossFitters are crazy to us, so there’s just. There’s, there’s a staircase of craziness and everyone looks at the one above them and says, well, I’m not that crazy.

[08:51] Oh, human nature,

[08:58] we’re going to say seven times a day. I have a limit.

[09:10] They they understand forever. You can’t play baseball, baseball, football, the top rate, so let’s just exclude top rating. You can’t play a sport for that long. Not to mention the sport. You’re literally beating your body every single day. It’s bound to happen. Once you get to injuries are bound to happen to your joints and your muscles and they have certain things start happening and so they know that. They understand that and so at the time period probably make as much money as they possibly can.

[10:03] Do you think there’s going to be a negative side effect 30 years down the road because CrossFit is such a, a newer sports that we haven’t. We don’t. We just don’t have the diagnostics that we do for football or or bodybuilding or

[10:25] it’s an impact score, so there’s stuff going on with their bodies and their brains. You can’t see it. Whereas in the sport of CrossFit, unless you’re dumb enough to take steroids and do stupid stuff like that. If you’re injured, you’re injured, right? Yeah, sure. Maybe down the road that’s going to be replacement, but is all that crap that happened back in the day. We give you a replacement and you know it sounds stupid. Watch somebody’s going to be replacement. It’ll make a huge hammer out is after you get up and walk, which is really odd. Will they be able to work out the same way that they were sitting there watching?

[11:24] He had a certain period of time that he can capitalize on it now and maybe we’re a little bit smarter with what would take. How will you take care of our bodies and stuff like that. Now that hopefully in the long run it won’t be like that, but also too, if you look at bodybuilding versus like CrossFit or functional because you guys are just doing it just when they’re a bodybuilder, they have restrictions. Whereas on our side, whatever you want to call it, you don’t have them. Right. And if you do have that, that’s the number one that and get that over.

[12:20] Well I think too, there’s a culture of massages and pliability and like you’re saying, well, you know, shoulder mobility, so because the, the end result is to be the most functional, you know, athlete

[12:39] let have have sports car now. I’m not sure. I’m not sure if they had that back in the day, you know, different things and we just didn’t have time appetite. We’re constantly learning, I don’t know, 10, 20 years from now, that’s something, some random replacement or something.

[13:14] So we’ll just see what happens.

[13:19] A new name from my own.

[13:28] Keep going, keep going. No, stop going.

[13:30] Oh, I got to go workout. Ended up. Ended up recording when they go downstairs and we’re actually going to do this thing that we’ve been talking to me.

[13:42] Yeah, so let’s, let’s go work on mobility now.

[13:48] Time and time to get hype so we can go down there and working out and I can be brandon.

[13:54] That’s wonderful. Trait will do. We’re going to pick one for me today. We’re going to pick me up, but anyway, it’s been great having you guys listened on and we’ll catch you soon. Thanks.
