Strong By Design Podcast

Jun 26, 2019

All of us have a story to tell...

While some stories are more painful or filled with more struggle than others it's important to understand that we all have something to say in this life.

Justin Schenck from the Growth Now Movement podcast visited the Critical Bench Compound and sat down with Coach Chris to pull back the curtain in his own life and share some deeply personal struggles and pain that ultimately led to triumph.

His show is dedicated to speaking with incredible men and women who have amazing stories of growth to help others live out their dreams.

Justin is a now a highly sought after public speaker who is the Founder of and also created his own live event called the Growth Now Movement Live.


"Life is happening for you and not to you.. As things are happening, I go okay, what is this doing for me versus what is this doing to me and it's just getting out of that victim mindset.."


"If there was a senior superlative for least likely to succeed it would have been me!"

Justin Schenck
