Nicole Sachs | Finding Mental Remedies for Physical Pain

That nagging lower-back pain may mean you need to take it easy— but not necessarily in the gym. Psychotherapist Nicole Sachs learned firsthand that physical distress can stem from unaddressed emotional conflict — and by getting the latter in check, you won’t just live with less pain, you’ll also be happier. After a doctor told her she’d need major surgery for a serious spinal condition and still would never be able to move the way she wanted to, Sachs started conducting mind-body experiments on herself to find another way forward, and — spoiler alert — she did. On this episode, the athlete shares her journey with pain, how she healed herself, and how she now helps others do the same. Her experiences with slowing down, journaling, and managing repressed feelings (including sometimes hating motherhood) can help us all understand and ease our own chronic torments. Inspired to move?

Joelle D’Fontaine | Getting in Step — With Yourself

Dance is about more than just moving your body — it’s about moving your soul. Nike trainer and choreographer Joelle D’Fontaine learned that firsthand when he more or less fell into a dancing gig at a gay nightclub, then fell so in love with the art form that he quit his desk job and put his (seemingly endless) energy into teaching dance full-time. In this episode, the founder of London and New York City dance studio At Your Beat shares how we can use dance to clear away anxiety, connect with our bodies, and just enjoy being alive. He also encourages us to embrace being a beginner at something and to be thirsty for ourselves — in the living room, on the dance floor, and throughout life.

That’s the balancing act that has helped NBA All-Star and Milwaukee Bucks guard Jrue Holiday become one of the best defensive players in the game.

In this episode, the defensive mastermind reveals his strategies for winning — on the court and as a father — sharing how he uses defeat as motivation and takes breathers to keep his passion going strong.

Graham Betchart | Playing (and Living) in the Moment

Sometimes, in sports — and in life — we’re living five minutes ago, or we’re worried about something that hasn’t happened yet. But according to author, sports psychologist and mental-performance coach Graham Betchart — who’s trained some of the best players in the NBA — it’s our ability to stay with the present moment that separates the great from the good. In this episode, Betchart explains how, just as we train our bodies for strength, speed and agility, we can also train our minds to always come back to “where our feet are.” He shares quick techniques we can all use to center ourselves, reveals the only stat that really matters, and explains why if we really want to win, we’ve got to let go of winning. Inspired to move?

Vinh Pham | Why PT Might Be Your Workout Game-Changer

If you consider physical therapy something you do when you’re injured, you’re not giving it enough credit. Sure, manual therapy (things like myofascial release, mobilization, massage, and more) can help you move pain-free, but it can also help you move more freely—so you can get the most out of every workout for a really, really long time. That’s what physical therapist and owner of the innovative Myodetox clinics Vinh Pham believes. In this episode, Vinh describes how his approach to recovery is shaking up the ever-evolving field of physical therapy, explains why you should be foam rolling your abs, and provides at-home DIY PT exercises you can do in 10 minutes a day that can help minimize pain and maximize your movements.TRAINED is produced by Nike Training Club Pro.

Shaquem Griffin | How to Maintain Your Confidence in the Face of “No”

When Shaquem Griffin was 4, he had his left hand amputated. Growing up, that didn’t hold him back from much, including playing football—even though most of his coaches, players, and friends didn’t think he’d ever be able to make more than a hobby of it. Shaquem, now a linebacker for the Seattle Seahawks, holds some of his sport’s top awards and has certainly proved his doubters wrong. In addition to training and practicing relentlessly, Shaquem has spent his entire life honing an unbreakable never-give-up mindset. It’s what has allowed him to defy expectations and develop unwavering self-confidence that has taken him all the way to the top. In this episode, Shaquem breaks down how his approach to self-talk, recovery, nutrition, and more helped him achieve what seemed like an impossible dream.TRAINED is produced by Nike Training Club Pro.

Ellen Latham | When Setbacks are Your Biggest Training Asset

If you asked Ellen Latham twenty years ago where will you be in the next ten years, she probably would have said, "working at my dream job." But when Ellen was in her early 40s, raising a child as a single parent and pursuing her career as a fitness instructor, she was suddenly let go from that dream job. She had to weigh her options: she could either give up or forge a new path. What started as Ellen’s small cycling classes grew into a thriving fitness movement built on the idea of accepting your setbacks in order to overcome them: Orangetheory. Ellen’s years of research, expertise as a fitness instructor, and her own challenges have shaped the philosophy behind Orangetheory; it’s for everyone, at any level, no matter your ability. On this episode, Ellen breaks down the science behind every Orangetheory workout, what it takes to be not just a good but a great trainer, and why anyone, no matter your training goals, should make fitness a lifestyle.

Dr. Joel Kahn | Food is Medicine

When most people think about nutrition and fitness, they think about burning calories, weight loss, or fueling their body. But what we eat determines so much more than how we look, feel, or what we do at the gym. Our approach to nutrition says a lot about our values, our training and health goals, and the type of life we envision for ourselves. On today’s episode, we sit down with Dr. Joel Kahn, a cardiologist, best-selling author and a proponent of vegan and plant-based diets, who has learned that while nutrition looks different for everyone, finding the right one for you can improve your longevity, performance, sleep, and your own sense of self. Dr. Kahn will debunk some of the science behind the latest fad diets, explain how nutrition can stave off heart disease, and dive deep into the specific plant-based foods that everyone should put on their plate every day.

Simon Sinek | Finding Your “Why”

Think about your training ambition: When does it change? What hurdles get in the way? How do you keep yourself going? And how often do you think about why you’re doing what you’re doing? Finding your “why” ––your motivation, your belief, your cause –sets people up for greatness. And no one understands this idea better than Simon Sinek, an author, ethnographer, organizational consultant, and self-proclaimed optimist, who has dedicated his research, books, and career to helping people find their “why” and achieve their long-term goals. On this episode, Simon gives us tips on how to find and stick to our own “whys,” walks us through the best way to manage stress and unpacks the idea of training as “an infinite game.” Because when you approach your training routine as something that can’t be won, that has no end, you give yourself room to constantly improve and focus on the process instead of the outcome.
