Besides helping 1000’s create their “Optimal Self” via getting uncomfortable, defining values, then creating the daily habits needed to become the person THEY want to be, Jeremy Herder, has plenty of stories to tell from playing Major League Baseball and then becoming a Cross Fit Games Champion. From his transition from professional sports to life today, cross-fit, tips for others to find their optimal self + helping people find their path, and partnering up with new podcast platforms, Jeremy talks to FHM exclusively about it all!
To start off, how was the transition from being a professional athlete in the MLB and a cross-fit champion to being a life coach and speaker to help get people to become their own optimal selves?
Well, in my journey of being a professional athlete all the way up to being a CrossFit athlete, what I can say is that there were many mentors and coaches along the way that I learned from and that poured into me. So the transition from me being in those positions to now is simply giving back. I have been graced and honored to be around some incredible people and gain knowledge from where they were, how they got there, and tricks of the trade so to speak. All I want to be able to do is give back in that same way, so that the things that I was taught do not go with me to my grave, but they actually get poured into somebody else so they can pass it along as well. The other side of being a professional athlete in two different sports is that I learned and the one thing that I wished I would have done differently in both of those areas is to focus more on being the best version of myself rather than trying to win a match or hit a home run. What I teach now is helping people understand that they have the power within them to build and have what they want, but it’s truly about being the best version of you that will get you there.
