#129 - Carl Paoli On Like-Minded People, Dealing With Rough Patches & Living In The Moment

Carl Paoli is a Movement Specialist and elite gymnast. From a young age he was always enthusiastic and passionate for physical activity, but it was his love for gymnastics, however, that would greatly shape his definition of hard work and determination.

Doc starts us off with asking Carl about his background, as well as what brings him over to Australia. Carl then tells us about being a Movement Specialist, realizing the importance of media in growing his brand, and recounts his experience with CrossFit as well as having gone on the ADVF Bali trip this year.

Doc asks Carl to share about his current and future plans, which leads to a question about how he manages so much with limited time. The discussion turns towards dealing with rough patches in life, the importance of reconnecting with yourself and about living in the moment.

Great guest, great episode! Carl was an absolute gem to have, and he’s made many good and interesting points for you all to get some take aways. Enjoy the show, guys!
