Posted by Jason Ferruggia

Matt_Mayberry1It’s not everyday you meet a guy obsessed with Walter Payton and hill sprints the way I am. So, when I heard Matt Mayberry may share the same passions as the other members of the Renegade Nation, I got excited to sit down with him.


Matt Mayberry is a highly acclaimed keynote speaker and performance strategist. A former Indiana University and Chicago Bears linebacker, Matt is one of the most widely-read columnists, where he writes on peak performance, overcoming adversity, leadership, and motivation.

Matt’s work has been featured on ESPN, Forbes, Huffington Post, ABC, NBC, Fox Business, Fox News, Business Insider, and MSN Lifestyle. As the CEO of Matt Mayberry Enterprises, he helps individuals and organizations all over the world to maximize their potential to achieve breakthrough performance.

He is also the author of the highly anticipated book, WINNING PLAYS, which releases on September 6th.

In this episode, he and I discuss everything from his time in the NFL, to how he overcame adversity and discovered his calling in public speaking, to goal setting strategies and his current training and nutrition routine.

This is one of those interviews where you will get to hear us dive into the deeper aspects behind succeeding in your career, physical training, and personal life.
