75: The Mindset of an Athlete with Cassidy Dickson

by | Feb 24, 2020

In this episode, Mike is joined by Cassidy Dickson to discuss the mindset of an athlete and the transition out of competing. Cassidy was a high level CF athlete who just recently stopped competing and has transitioned to full time coach and mentor. This was an in-depth conversation that began with a discussion around body image issues and the pressure to look a certain way and transitioned to topics about competing, identifying as an athlete, the mindset struggles of no longer competing, intuitive eating, and mindfulness.
A truly well rounded conversation that you’re going to love!
