They say health is wealth. For John Madsen, health and fitness are directly related to one’s wealth and how far one can go in life.
Despite never having played football in high school, John was successfully signed into the NFL. He scored touchdowns for the Oakland Raiders amazingly. However, halfway through his third year on the team, John was cut and put on the next flight home. Never one to turn away from adversity, John landed with the Cleveland Browns for a short stint before the NFL dream eventually became a thing of the past.
After some contemplation on where his life had wound up, John came to some realizations that would guide him to where he is now. He realized that his ability had little to do with being able to play for four or twelve years in the NFL; it’s a person’s mindset that stops one from pushing past their perceived limits.
Fueled by this epiphany, John set out to share this with the world by promoting what he knew best—fitness. He opened up a world-class training facility in Salt Lake City. Ten years since, he has personally consulted and coached Olympians, MLB World Series Champions, dozens of NFL players, and hundreds of collegiate athletes. He later decided to expand his client base. Two years ago, he took his company to the virtual realm and had since attracted top CEOs, entrepreneurs, and corporate teams to hire him to automate championship behavior.
John’s clients are high-performing men who are thirty-five to fifty years old who want a championship body to go with their championship life. They’ve often been successful in many areas, but their bodies often look and perform average at best. Chasing wealth over health has taken its toll, and they know they can’t go on looking and feeling terrible no matter how much money they make.
To append his remarkable coaching, John mastered neuro-linguistic programming (NLP). NLP is a type of therapy that focuses on making changes at the unconscious level, so the change in your thinking becomes automatic. One does not have to consciously think about it or remember to behave or think differently. John is a certified NLP master practitioner. He is equipped with a wide range of skills and techniques to help other people and businesses progress and move forward with stealth and ease.
“I teach people how to automate championship behavior so that elite fitness feels effortless. I rewire a person’s mind to unconsciously achieve the things they haven’t been able to in the past,” John said. He believes that your thoughts and feelings manifest in your behavior and, subsequently, your outcome. This is why he wants to change people internally, as well. His secrets to success are desire, determination, focus, and a growth mindset.
In his downtime, John invests himself in his wife and young daughter. He believes that family has a big impact on your success; any high-performing person is aware that a good support system is important in unlocking one’s potential.Check out John on Instagram and on his website.
