Greg Hammond is the director of Motor and Action Sports at Concept2, a sports and fitness manufacturing company based in Morrisville, Vermont and most recognized for their rowing and “erg” products. He was first introduced to the company and the erg products while attending college to obtain his bachelor’s degree in Health Science. Since 1996, he has worked closely with the motocross, mixed martial arts, and CrossFit markets as well as multiple police and fire departments.
Greg joins me today to share his journey into CrossFit and using BikeErgs and SkiErgs to improve his workout routine. He shares how he became inspired to start his fitness journey and what it was like to attend one of the first Level 1 CrossFit seminars. He also shares why it’s important for people to remain diligent and dedicated to getting fit and healthy - even if they do not see the immediate results they desire - as well as how new athletes and fitness enthusiasts can easily incorporate fitness into their lifestyle to improve their health.
“Everyone’s got to find what their goal is and use that to get them started, then maybe shift it to something that is more appropriate later.” - Greg Hammond

The Dr. Mike Show is Brought to You by Neuro Coffee
Neuro Coffee is a high octane brain supplement infused into great coffee.
It contains a patented extract from the coffee fruit, which has been clinically shown to increase levels of brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) after taking. BDNF acts to grow and repair neurons in the brain and the body. As we age, BDNF decreases. Age related diseases of the brain (e.g. age related memory loss) are often associated with low levels of BDNF. Aging in general, stress, and lack of sleep also negatively impact BDNF.
Coffee drinkers never miss their morning cup of coffee, and now with Neuro Coffee you can enjoy that morning ritual even more knowing that it is helping your brain health. Neuro Coffee is roasted in small batches. Click here to start getting your monthly supply of Neuro Coffee. Dr. Mike Show listeners can use the coupon code DRMIKE10 to save 10% on their first order.
