Ep 8. James Lancaster - Kings of Grit
Kings of Grit
My guest today is James Lancaster. James is a Crossfit athlete and founder Kings of Grit. KoG is a non-profit organization designed to prepare inmates for productive lives when their debt to society has been paid. Every week, James uses Crossfit expertises to teach and instill the critical values that society and employers demand. Character, teamwork, personal responsibility, positive mental attitude, unity and grace. James was also a professional football player and suffered a catastrophic career-ending knee injury. We discuss how recovery from that injury changed his life, introduced him to Crossfit and put him on the path he is on now. That path is one that includes competing in Crossfit competition, opening his own gym in Memphis and training others in nutritional best practices. When he is not helping train others, James is feeding his own mind, body and soul through hunting. We talk about his passion for bow hunting white and elk, hunting ducks and fishing. James is one well rounded guy and we loved our conversation with him.
