Episode 21: Everyday Hero (ft. Len Stanmore)

If you want to be inspired in how to reinvent your life, meet  Len Stanmore. He is the only person on the planet who has climbed the death zones of 7 highest summits in 7 continents, skied the North and South Pole, crossed four deserts, and ran ultramarathons (100 – 250 km) in crazy treacherous conditions. As you will soon find out, he was not a natural born athlete. In fact, Len considers himself an everyday human who partied hard, ate takeout, drank  beer and smoked cigars for decades.  At the age of 48, he woke up and decided to try something new, something that would scare him.

No matter what your fitness level (whether you are a beginner or an extreme athlete) or where you are at in life, Len will move you as he shares many life lessons through his stories through his successes, failures and near death experiences.

Deepak Chopra says, “It’s never too late to begin creating the bodies we want instead of the ones we mistakenly assume we are stuck with.”
