Hello friends and welcome to the season seven finale of Uncharted Performance. Massive thank you to our very good friend Mark Valenti of Blind Dog Gym for brining us together and letting us share our stories on his awesome podcast, the Refined Savage. This is the episode we finally introduce my partner in crime, my coach, the immensely beautiful, extremely talented, my best friend, badass, movement and nutrition guru, my wife, Alina Wencel. Alina and I both took different paths coming America. We share our stories of coming to the states, how we met, my dark days with substance abuse, Alina coming to the rescue, how finding the right person is the key to motivate you to do the right things, our fitness journeys, what we do, and why we do it. Our passions. Our pursuit of balance and a healthier life, creating values that will lead to a more meaningful and rewarding life, overcoming your own fears, and getting to do things that you love to do. We hope to motivate change, and that our stories provide a dose of perspective for many of us in regards to the abundance of luxury and conveniences we are surrounded by and with. And remember, friendships are the best ships , do you really need that magical apple cutter, and a little bit more on Scotland. Cheers!
