About The Ready State Podcast

There is a place where you are always operating at the peak of your human potential. A place we call The Ready State.

But how do you get there?

That’s the challenge. Because the human body is complex — arguably the most complex thing in the known universe. And it’s connected, too. (Or a “system of systems,” as we like to say.) That means any one aspect of your health can impact every other aspect of it. Which creates an intricate web of cause-and-effect.

We started this podcast to try and untangle that web — at least a little.

Of course, we’ll talk about physical health. After all, Kelly’s spent over a decade working with athletes in the NFL, MLB, Olympics, and beyond. And Juliet is a three-time world champion paddler, and the CEO of two world-renowned fitness companies. Plus being physically healthy is one of the most crucial parts of a person’s well-being.

But we also explore other critical and cutting-edge aspects of peak performance. Everything from sleep and diet, to genetics and generational issues. And we hear from the doctors, athletes, and other experts who are at the forefront of these fields.

That way, you can live your life in The Ready State — where you are always operating at the peak of your human potential. Subscribe and start listening below!


Season 5

Season 5 of The Ready State Podcast is here and it is all about AGING and LONGEVITY. Aging is a universal experience and yet we often feel powerless to its effects. We want to dig into this subject and learn about all the environmental and lifestyle factors that contribute to how we age, how long we live, and our quality of life as we age. Is it all about genetics? Or can we make a positive impact on how we age and increase longevity by making more educated choices? How does life, health, and sport change as we age? What actionable advice can we implement right now?

We rounded up some friends that are not letting age define them. We check in to see what nutrition, sleep, and exercise look like for those that seem to have this aging thing down. People from Gabby Reece to Mark Sisson and Erwan Le Corre. Join us and get a little insight and some actionable advice so we can push further and redefine what health and performance look like on the back half of this journey we call life.


Season 4

Season 4 of The Ready State is a “Where are they now” of early CrossFit. Juliet and Kelly are coming up on 15 years of CrossFit affiliation and a lot has changed over the years. CrossFit literally revolutionized how we think about fitness and the limits of human performance. Its innovative training style, combined with a focus on community, completely upended the fitness industry. It has led to the creation of thousands of companies that support CrossFit affiliates and athletes, and has produced countless thought leaders. With more than 15,000 current affiliates, it is arguably responsible for creating the boutique fitness industry as we know it today. This season we talk to some of the earliest affiliates, Games athletes, and SMEs that helped shape this movement to find out their CrossFit origin stories, how the journey has been, and what they are doing now.


Season 3

Season 3 of The Ready State Podcast is all about raising Ready State kids. Because if we can give our kids a better foundation, it will stick with them for life.

We explore what it takes to raise happy, healthy, well-adjusted kids in the high-tech era. We cover essential topics like nutrition, fitness, and sleep. We also discuss the current state of childhood obesity and sports (over)-specialization. And we give parents tons of practical — and reasonable — tips they can start using with their own children right away. Subscribe and start listening below!


Season 2

Season 2 of The Ready State Podcast is all about facing and managing pain. Pain is a universal experience. But at the same time, the natural state of the human body is pain-free. And yet most people we talk to — upwards of 90% — experience pain on a daily basis.

That's why we wanted to understand more about pain in this season of the podcast. We discuss how it works, the role that the brain plays, and how we can shift our relationship with pain. Our goal is to conceptualize the complex and subjective nature of pain. And then help you find your own path towards being pain-free. Subscribe and start listening below!
