Mike Bledsoe is one of the founders and owners of Faction Strength & Conditioning Home of CrossFit Memphis. He's a co-host on the top ranked Barbell Shrugged Podcast and Host of the Bledsoe Show. 

I first met Mike at Paleo F(X) in Austin Texas and discovered we have more commonalities than I've found of the majority of folks I've met in the Crossfit/strength community. 

In this two-part conversation, we uncovered some of those common interests including the effect of language on movement, trauma's impact on posture and his development as a business owner.

Hi, I'm Max Shank.

 

I've written 3 books and taught over a hundred courses in countries around the world. These experiences have allowed me to help 10's of Thousands of people across the globe improve their lives through physical fitness. I also have the pleasure to operate the best damn gym in Encinitas, CA (Southern California) called Ambition Athletics, where hundreds more get better every day.

I like to experiment and explore the human condition. Fitness is my primary method of developing life-altering skills. In addition, I've picked up guitar, piano, and drums as an adult. Recently, I built my dining room table with my own two hands using no screws or nails. Life is full of opportunities for growth and I look forward to exploring as many as I possible can!

 

My mission in life is to give people the freedom to pursue any athletic endeavor for their entire lives.

 

I want for everyone else, what I have been able to achieve. The ability to try anything I want, while continuing to get better every day. This is the secret to a lifetime of what we call health and fitness.

I'm here to give you physical freedom, and to help you get better every day.

Join me, it's far more fun this way.

 Better every day,

-Max

About Ryan Munsey

You can do anything. You’re capable of more. Unleash your potential. Maximize your potential

For most people in the world today, its like we’re living in this shadow life where we are are afraid to step out in the light and afraid to live to our fullest potential. We live small, we play small, we hide who we truly are for fear of being ostracized or labeled as different if we stray from the status quo or reveal our true self.

I SAY SCREW THAT! (Imagine punk hair cut, Rage Against the Machine music and ostentatious Ray-Bans. Or I could just insert a picture for you…)

TO ME, this whole fitness, nutrition, “bio-hacking” movement is a vessel that we can utilize to help us move towards the “MORE” that we are chasing…

We have found that we can manipulate our habits and our actions to get more muscle or lose more fat, get better sleep, have more sex, make more money, and we can be smarter, increase focus, we can be more productive, we can improve our lives and move our reality closer to the dream life that we have for ourselves. 

That’s what this page is all about! Yes we can manipulate calories and control insulin so that you can lose body fat. Yes we can program the perfect sets and reps to help you achieve whatever fitness or strength and conditioning goal you might have, but it’s more than that – It’s about what those things do for the rest of your life.
