MATT CHAN
Matt originally took up CrossFit in his late 20s to help improve his endurance as a Denver area firefighter. After four Top 10 finishes at the CrossFit Games (including the runner-up slot in 2012), Chan became a full-time athlete and one of the most popular and knowledgeable veterans in the sport.

CHERIE CHAN
Cherie found CrossFit in 2007 while looking for a program to get fit for mountain biking and climbing. Having competed in mountain biking, competing in CrossFit was a natural and fun way to express all of the hard training. 

FTW STORY
TrainFTW was born out of a passion for creating programming solutions for gyms and individuals to be able to train side by side while optimizing their fitness potential. We understand you – as we are parents, students, trainers, and business owners struggling to find enough time in the day to complete all the tasks required to stay afloat. We were spread thin and everything was suffering. TrainFTW is our solution.

Four hours just wasn't enough, Chris Roe has more to say.  In part two, Chris covers the finer details of Elk calling

 

Hunt Smarter! RHR is the most comprehensive online resource for learning about elk, turkey & deer behavior vocalizations, calling, hunting strategies, etc

About Chris Roe
I have a degree in wildlife biology from Colorado State University and—in addition to running Roe Hunting Resources—am also a managing partner of a separate wildlife management and consulting company. In this capacity, I am fortunate to be able to work on a variety of wildlife conservation and management issues ranging from routine wildlife surveys for capital development projects, to designing comprehensive wildlife and habitat management plans for large property owners. My specialty is the understanding, and utilization, of wildlife behavior to maximize the success of my wildlife and habitat management plans and projects. In addition to my wildlife expertise, I bring to the table a background in range and forest management.

As a hunter, my credentials run even deeper. Starting out as a wide-eyed kid tagging along with my uncles hunting across the farm country of Upstate New York, I have continued to hunt across the country, and credit my passion for wildlife behavior and communication as the basis of most of my success. The only hunting seasons that I missed since those early childhood days were during my assignment in Germany with the U.S. Army. This didn't stop me from taking after-hour jaunts into the German countryside to observe and discover new aspects regarding the behavior of some of that country's most notable big game species: the roebuck, red stag, and wild boar.

Shield Wall Archery

Aron used to spend hours at the office fletching arrows, even while recording podcasts, much to this editors chagrin.  A better solution presented itself with the fine folks at Shield Wall Archery and Supply.  Give this episode a listen, find out how to get out of the "office," and spend more time on the range.

An archery shop with the archer in mind
Shield Wall Archery & Supply started as a space for us and our hunting buddies to get together to work on our bows, and prepare for upcoming hunts. Once we built it though, we realized we couldn't keep it to ourselves. We wanted to provide the level of service, and attention to detail that only a true archery nerd could provide.

With today's modern archery equipment and all of the information available online the level of competition has never been higher on the tournament field or in the woods. Gone are the days when good enough was good enough. Today we have precision components and advanced technology in every part of archery, but people still just glue arrows together. That's where we come in. Building the best arrows takes time, equipment, and an attention to detail that the average pro shop can't provide. We specialize in building you your perfect arrow so you can spend your time doing what you love; shooting your bow.
