Put Your Holiday Downtime To Good Use with the BJJ Fanatics Podcast!
Get your mind right for 2019 with the Fanatics Podcast
The holiday season can be jam packed with more fun, friends, family and frivolity than any 2 week period should be able to hold. The downside to all of the festivities is a general increase in stress level, more opportunities to overeat and the general lack of 'peace on earth' most days. With days off of work and school, it can be a great time to take a break from vegging in front of the TV watching reruns of The Office to keep your jiu jitsu learning going.
If you haven't checked out the new BJJ Fanatics podcast, we've got you covered. In the first four released episodes (with more to come) Bernardo Faria and Michael Zenga, the masterminds behind BJJ Fanatics have had the opportunity to sit down with some of the preeminent minds and athletes out there today.
