This week on RX’D Radio the boys sat down with the team at Hybrid Performance Method, specifically to speak with Fernando Reis. Fernando hails from Brazil, and is one of the top 5 Olympic Weightlifting athletes in the world, having set multiple world records and competing in both the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic Games. He is currently a coach at Hybrid Performance Method gym, and is preparing for the next Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Fernando talks about growing up in Brazil and he walks us through a personal story about robbery, and he highlights the astounding rates of violent crime in the country. He discusses how he became connected with Hybrid Performance Method, and reflects back upon his experiences preparing for and competing in the Olympic and PanAm Games. He discusses the greatest achievements and failures of his career in Olympic lifting, what motivates him to continue to improve, and provides his best advice to up and coming weightlifting athletes. Despite and because of his hardships, Fernando continues to be one of the most positive and supportive members of the Hybrid Performance Method community
