Today’s guest is one of Australia’s most sought after high performance coaches - he is the well kept secret of elite athletes including the currently ranked world #1 Sally Fitzgibbons, 7 x world champion Steph Gilmore, 3x world champion Mick Fanning, 2 x world champion Chumpy Pullen, sporting teams (such as the Sydney Roosters, Richmond Tigers, and recently worked with the NSW State of Origin team), and many top 1 percenters in the business world.
Nam Baldwin has a gift, one that you will hear throughout this podcast, of simplifying the complicated science behind brain and body performance and delivering it in (if you do the work) life-changing, digestible bites. Nam also has a presence about him - its unique combination of deep of knowledge, absolute focus on getting to the bottom of what’s going on, and a child-like wonder and playfulness that is contagious. He is someone who makes you want to be better simply by being around him….and that presence won’t be lost through this medium of a podcast.
He is also a free-diver, and we unpack the role of breath-work, and why it underpins ….well….everything. You’ve no doubt heard about the power of morning routines and Nam is a massive believer in that when ‘you win the morning you win the day’ - and gives us a key things you can do in 6 minutes to win your morning. Openly and rawly Nam also shares the moments where he has felt untethered at times amongst the curveballs that life can throw, and how he found his way back to his purpose and life philosophy again.
Littered with insights and wisdom that you’ll want to rewind and hear again, enjoy this conversation with Nam Baldwin.
