Born in Santa Monica, Logan Gelbrich feels right at home coaching at DEUCE Gym. With a background in collegiate (University of San Diego) and professional (San Diego Padres) baseball, Logan is used to high performance, heavy workloads, and accountability. Luckily, Logan was blessed enough to work with world renowned strength and conditioning coaches, sports psychologists, and nutritionists during his career. It’s during this time that the seeds were sown for the belief system that guides his coaching today. Forever a “student of the game,” Logan is always looking to strengthen and question his understanding of human movement and nutrition.
In this episode of Barbell Shrugged we talk with Logan about making conscious decisions, the difference between those who are still in the game in their 30’s and those who burn out at 25, the pursuit of truth, why you need to balance out the positive with the negative, a deep dive into depression, building something that will transcend yourself, finding environments that you can commit to a practice of deep work in, Logans upcoming book, and much more.
