Balancing competition, career and life w/ James Hobart

This week on the Brute Strength Podcast I'll be interviewing eight-time CrossFit Games veteran, James Hobart. It was announced that this year James has made the decision to decline his Regionals invitation despite finishing 33rd in the CrossFit Open overall. In this episode we are going to talk what it's like not training for the Games, being an athlete vs. coaching, as well as the motivation behind his decision to not compete and finally, what he plans to do next.
