Today on the podcast:

Fergus is a Hybrid Athlete who recently completed the 1200TWELVE which consisted of a 1200lb powerlifting total and sub 12 hour Ironman distance triathlon in the same day! 

Having competed in a variety of sports from a young age, Fergus has spent his life in pursuit of athletic performance.

He shared his experience with mental health, and a suicide attempt, publicly in 2018, and has since used his athletic pursuits as a channel to raise funds and awareness for this cause, and has raised almost £100,000 for Movember through a variety of strength and endurance challenges.

Notes for the 1200TWELVE for anyone unfamiliar with powerlifting or iron distance triathlon: 

Powerlifting lifts: squat, deadlift and bench 

2.4 mile swim (3.9K), 112 mile bike (180.2K), and 26.2 mile run (42.2K).

Here are some of the things we talked about in today’s podcast. —
