"I'm a big fan of accountability" - Logan Gelbrich

I would expect such a statement from a man who's favorite hashtag - and life code - is #HoldTheStandard

We gave you an introduction to Logan Gelbrich on the Bulletproof Conference Hot Seat episode of the Optimal Performance Podcast. In that episode, I promised you a full dose of Logan...well, here it is.

Get ready for an episode that will put you on notice - notice that YOU are responsible for your own mindset, attitude, community, growth, and success.

The question is...

What standard are you holding?

Meet Logan Gelbrich

Logan is a busy man. He's the man behind Deuce Gym, Original Nutritionals, Crossfit Strongman, he just competed at the Strongman National Championships, he's writing a book and he's simply an all-around badass human being.

During my recent trip to LA to meet with Dr. Andrew Hill at Peak Brain Institute (2-min video re-capping the trip), I caught up with Logan just before his annual trip to Fiji.

**Side note: On that trip Logan proposed to his now fiancee Lindsey Matthews, creator of BirthFit. She said Yes! Huge congratulations to these two...talk about a #PowerCouple.

Surrounding yourself with like-minded people who push you to grow and evolve is a common narrative for Optimizers like us (and the OPP in general).

Deuce Gym is perhaps the most tangible example of this mindset and community that I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing.

This is one reason I refuse to visit Los Angeles without stopping by Deuce Gym. Not just for a workout - that's a bonus if I can get it in - but the community is unparalleled, and that's one of the topics we explore on this podcast.

Here's proof that, yes bro, I do lift. And I lift at Deuce Gym when I'm in LA.

5 Reasons We Fall Short of Our Goals

I know you're counting, so here are the 5 reasons we fall short of our goals. I could explain these for you here, but then you wouldn't listen to Logan on the podcast... 

  1. Accountability
  2. You Never Move Beyond The Whiteboard Stage
  3. You Have a Fixed Mindset
  4. You're Too Fragile
  5. Community
