What It Really Takes: Grit And Grind Of The Games Life w/ Tennil Reed-Beuerlein

Tennil Reed-Beuerlein joins us today to talk about the journey of the last 6 years. She placed 1st at the South West Regional and 6th at the 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games, in which she was the first female representing the U.S. on the leaderboard this year. Tennil walks us through the inner dialogue, non-negotiables, and the realities of what needs to happen if you want to compete at a high level. I admire people who are so "all in" on something with an unshakeable belief that we can't help but learn from their drive. Tennil is one of those people.
