Jason Khalipa won the CrossFit Games in 2008. Then he opened a CrossFit affiliate and grew it into a mult-gym, multi-million dollar business NC Fit. In the middle of growing that business, his 4-year-old daughter Ava was diagnosed with leukemia.

There’s no right way to deal with something like this, but Jason discusses it on the latest episode of The Free+Style Way podcast. Watch the clip below to hear how CrossFit helped prepare him mentally for the challenges outside of the gym.

It doesn’t have to be CrossFit, but there is value is challenging your body and mind, and finding strength you didn’t know you had. Putting yourself in uncomfortable situations on purpose prepares you to better handle unplanned uncomfortable situations down the road.

Jason does a great job of explaining it in the clip and hopefully we can all have his mental strength someday.
