This week we’re talking with Laird Hamilton and Gabriel Reece, two of the most high functioning, successful and driven people we have ever met, about their lives together and how they work to establish a lifestyle, routine and community centered around happiness and health. They’re professional athletes. Laird is basically the king of surfing and Gabby is a former professional volleyball player, they’re both business owners and between them, they have their own documentaries, podcasts, books and more.

They run and host a fitness, wellness and recovery program called XPT where they travel to different locales and spend three days eating, surfing, meditating and working out with other likeminded folks. We had a chance to attend one of these experiences last summer—it was an absolutely singular inspiring experience that still informs the choices we make every day. In this interview, we talk about XPT, we talk about their super food company, a new documentary about Laird’s life and we talk about the way they eat, work out and their relationship with each other and with other people in their community.

On today's show we discuss:

  • What exploration and performance training (XPT) is all about.
  • How Laird and Gabby find the balance between establishing a healthy routine while being able to adapt.
  • How life may seem effortless but it takes a lot of effort.

  • Laird and Gabby’s healthy eating habits.
  • The importance of not to putting a lot of stress around your diet.

Crowd Cow is a pretty cool new company that is changing the way we purchase our meat by providing high quality beef in a convenient new format. They use an online system where you can put money on a cow, basically becoming a “steak-holder”, get it? You can purchase as much as you want without having to split a cow with someone else and then find a place to store it all. The grass fed beef comes from small, sustainable, and independent ranches and we can tell you personally that the quality is awesome. It’s delivered frozen straight to your door, in individual sous vide-ready vacuum packs.

The whole process makes getting the best quality beef, the exact cuts you want and the quantities, easier than ever. So we figured this company is something that Paleo listeners or anyone who appreciates a good steak would be interested in. Today we’re talking to Joe Heitzeberg, the CEO of the company, about how he came to the idea and we learn a bit more about the process, about the beef, and about some of the interesting challenges involved in running a company like this.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • Crowd Cow and how the company works.
  • The niche market that Crowd Cow serves.
  • The types of beef cuts they provide and where they are sourced from.
  • The different seasonalities of beef cuts that are available.
  • The challenges that they encountered as they brought Crowd Cow to the public.
  • The importance of getting in front of the right customer base.
  • The relationship that Crowd Cow builds with its ranchers.
  • How the team at Crowd Cow built an online community to offer information and resources.

“Any cow standing in a field could be called grass fed.” — @jheitzeb @crowdcowusa [0:14:19.1]
