Two words describe our guest today: Uncommonly Driven. How else would you describe someone who gets up before the sun rises each day to run 8-10 miles, then works from 5:30 AM until lunchtime, takes a short break, works out again, and then gets back to work until evening. Our guest, Chuck Roche, is the owner of Uncommonly Driven Fitness, a USMC veteran, fitness guru, and ultrarunner.
Chuck speaks with us today about his experience in the Marine Corps, his struggles with PTSD and alcoholism, and his thoughts about how we can do a better job supporting Veterans. 10 years sober and the owner of a thriving personal training business, Chuck talks about his path, about the importance of fitness in his own life, and how pain can be a motivator if we are willing to let ourselves get comfortable with being uncomfortable.
We are so grateful to share this conversation today, as we honor all who serve and have served in commemoration of Veteran’s Day.
