Episode 23 – The Power of Positivity with PJ Rubel


In this episode, Danny gets a heavy dose of caffeine and positivity when he sits down with owner and founder of Rubel Roasting CoffeePJ Rubel shares how he turned his passion for coffee into his very own family business.  They also talk about the squatty potty, coaching 5am fitness classes, and how PJ turned a potentially nightmarish weekend at the 2014 CrossFit Games Regionals into a positive shift in perspective on his day to day life forever.
