How can we train to perform at the highest level when the pressure is on?
And how can we stay on point when we get injured, our relationships fall apart and the roughest parts of real life threaten to derail our progress?
Whether you’re growing a business, performing in elite athletics or dominating in any field, what systems do we need to set up in order to up our game and keep improving?
To help us out, I’m honored to be joined once again by Niyi Sobo, former NFL running back for the New Orleans Saints and firefighter turned mindset and peak performance coach for pro athletes, top performers, CEOs and executives. Niyi is also host of the highly-rated Sports Motivation Podcast and Get Ya Mind Right Podcast, as well as a father of five.
I hope you enjoy. We’re chatting about:
- How to embrace pain and failure and use it to your advantage
- What champions do after they win the big game
- The importance of clearly defining your vision and purpose
- How to develop a training regimen to level up your game and perform under pressure
- How to re-create your routine after an injury or emotional setback
- And tons more…
Let’s go hang out with Niyi.
One quick heads up. I make a point to keep this show family friendly and free to everyone, so a quick disclaimer—our friend Niyi uses a bit of language in this episode, but never fear! Our editing wizard Ian added some blips in so you can listen, even if the little ones are running around or listening in the car. A lot of you have written in over the years and said that it’s very important to you that we keep the language family-friendly, which we’ve been doing for 11+ years now on this podcast, and we’re happy to do so. So I hope you enjoy this interview with Niyi.

And here’s some quick news, for the first time in several years, I’ll be opening up just a few spots for Advanced Personalized Coaching.
I don’t call it biohacking because we’re not trying to pull a quick one on your body, it’s more like health optimization.
So if you’re interested in learning how to apply more advanced concepts like photobiomodulation with infrared light, pulse electromagnetic fields, strategic supplementation, customized intermittent fasting and meal plans, personalized workout programming and more, all you have to do is send me an email—firstname.lastname@example.org is my address.
And just because it’s advanced coaching, that doesn’t mean that I’m going to be piling on all of these ridiculous things, all these biohacks and health optimization strategies.
Sometimes it means cutting a lot of these things out. After 11+ years of going about this podcast and coaching people, there are a lot of the things that I’ve learned can get in the way.
So if you want the best results possible and you want to work with me one on one, just shoot me an email, and I’ll see if I can help you out.
When we’re tossing and turning and waking up in the middle of the night, productivity and performance takes a big hit the next day.
So if you’re looking to fall asleep and stay asleep through the night, it’s important to look at which nutrients might be able to help.
For sleep, athletic performance and recovery, magnesium is a big one.
Unlike other magnesium supplements on the market that have 1 – 2 forms of magnesium, Magnesium Breakthrough from BiOptimizers contains all 7 forms of magnesium designed to help calm your mind and help you fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake up refreshed.
So if you want to get your sleep dialed in, make sure you check out Magnesium Breakthrough.
