I moved home from Boston to rural Vermont during 2020 and went out on my own as a personal trainer. Your podcast helped me keep a positive, healthy mindset through the hardest transition of my life. I achieved my original definition of what success would be in my small town in the first year. In...Read full review »

Ads in the middle are killing me guys. Talk about an immediate halt to momentum…ads in the beginning maybe?

Ben and Patrick, I have been listening to your podcast every week for four years. I listen to each episode as soon as it’s released. There really are no adequate words to express how grateful I am for the change that your Podcast has brought to my life. I’m currently reading the book, The Art Of...Read full review »
ChasingOutdoors via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/24/23
It’s crazy to think I started listening to this podcast 5 years ago. During this time so much has changed and it feels like my life also evolved, from a CrossFit junkie to now this more holistic approach to life, same as the topics on the podcast. Thanks to you guys I also made my mission to...Read full review »

Love you guys so I hate to say something critical. A lot of what you say is from The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer give him some credit and also everyone should read that book. Thanks
Tj Omaha via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/13/22
I started listening to this podcast looking for information about health and fitness, and it has easily delivered that but also so much more than I ever expected. The conversations that happen every week open new doors to improving mental resilience, relationships, work, building businesses and...Read full review »

Thank you guys for doing this. Listening this podcast is one of the most effective thing in self-improvement. Update 3 years later: Content is still great. I want to say thank you, again. One thing that is a little bit disappointing - I DMed Patrick two years ago with a question about supporting...Read full review »

Swassypopo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/09/22
The new format revamps a tired format and better suits the host’s style of podcasts. A show I continuously return to, during a tough week of WODs or just life. I do wish there was a way to send in comments that was not linked to social media. Ben just mentioned that he has heavily curtailed...Read full review »
Dahurian via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/03/22
Ben is a machine! The way he explains his point of view of life, sports, nutrition will make you rethink how to execute all you actions in your daily life. 200% recommended!!
frefgitdh via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 10/16/22
I’ve been listening to these podcasts for the last two ish years. I’m not in the Crossfit community at all. But the mindset, habit forming and growth themes to the episodes have been some of the best tools I’ve come across to assist me during a career change (throw in COVID), and developing my...Read full review »

I look forward to every episode that comes out each week. Best podcast hands down for anyone interested in mindset, crossfit, nutrition, and so much more. I’ve been a big fan of Ben for years and this podcast never disappoints.
shamptonflwrs via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/16/22
I started listening because I was after Ben’s advice/insight into nutrition and health; I’ve continued listening because of the leadership and self-improvement lessons that I’ve gained through the years. I enjoy the relationship between Ben and Patrick and think they do a great job of being...Read full review »

This is only the second episode I have listened to from this podcast but I LOVE it. Today was my first Hopper Talk and I really truly enjoyed the Q&A type conversation! Definitely something I needed today and this week. 😎💚
Tabs☺️💕 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/25/22
This podcast is extremely white - and at times extremely ignorant and problematic. Their business and leadership content is fire. Commentary on other content could use some work.
theealikotree via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/14/22
This podcast is absolutely life changing. Ben’s view on not only fitness but mental health has made me a happier and healthier person. I’ve finding myself repeating the lessons I’ve learned to my classes as a coach, to my employees as a boss, and to my kids as a father. Thank you for putting out...Read full review »

I recently realized that I have been listening to Ben and Patrick since the very beginning, 2017 ! (Thank you iPhone for telling me this). And I’m never bored, I’m looking forward to a new episode every single week. Thank you for everything you did, keep on doing this show !
Viktoriia, PhD via Apple Podcasts · France · 01/06/22
The last episode with Cole Sager was exactly what I needed to hear today. Thanks for sharing, encouragement for me as I walk through tough times…
kate_-406 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/22/21
Guys, I was pretty disappointed with your last episode. How can you talk about the 2021 CrossFit games and not acknowledge Tia’s achievements. Not to even mention her at all. I thought CrossFit was about the community and camaraderie, and part of that is also celebrating amazing performances....Read full review »

Ben, host of the Chasing Excellence podcast, highlights all aspects of fitness, wellness and more in this can’t miss podcast! The host and expert guests offer insightful advice and information that is helpful to anyone that listens!
EricaBushwell via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/28/21
I have felt that this is a good podcast, however I feel that there of been a few shows where Ben has attempted to inform and educate about matters that are outside his scope of practice. I am a psychiatrist and I feel that it is important to work within my specialty and not work outside my scope...Read full review »

I’ve been listening to Chasing Excellence for a few years now, and slowly but surely the constant exposure to excellent teaching really has changed the way I think, day-to-day.

I have been listening to the podcast since I read Ben’s book in 2017! The content you guys bring up and the way Ben explain things is just phenomenal.

Absolutely love the topics. It reached me of course a lot about the sport, but also do much about mindset, routines and nutrition. Top three of all podcast I’ve ever followed!
Waba07 via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 05/17/21
Been listening to this podcast for a while now and was super bummed at the most recent talk w Peter Rahal from RX bar. His blatant and offensive analogy about “homosexuals” was welcomed and even acknowledged by Ben as a “good analogy.” General rule of thumb- If you have to start a statement by...Read full review »

No one else can do what these two do. I love how They start with a clear statement about what they’ll be discussing; there is little side talk and I love that; I learn more from these two than I do from any other podcast for real. There isn’t a time when I say “I was listening to this podcast,...Read full review »

Love the show. It always goes somewhere I’m not expecting yet I can always apply it to my fitness, my business, my family so, although I’m not a cross fitter, I get so much out of the wisdom in which you share so thank you!!

Love this podcast. I listen on another platform but wanted to show my support! Thanks for helping coaches coach better!
Orodrethculnamo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/09/20
Early episodes were amazing fitness and lifestyle content. Unfortunately Ben’s interests seem to have shifted to wokeness and virtue signaling, so I had to unsubscribe.
fndichrb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/19/20
When you start a sentence with “I’m not a nutritionist... BUT” Stay in your lane with programming. A great deal of your nutrition advice is fear mongering and disordered.
Danielle Kepics via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/14/20
It’s unbelievable that this is free content! I love the format with Patrick teeing up the questions. It’s always useful information. Ben is incredibly authentic and you can tell he is an expert who is passionate about helping people improve their health and fitness!
Philip Moser via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/13/20
You are such a stand up guy that I respect and love to listen to. Each time I walk away with more knowledge. Thanks for all that you do.

Hello Patrick and Ben I listen to many fitness related podcasts but yours is a must listen every single week. This week however, I actually took notes!
