Strong By Design Podcast

Feb 13, 2019

Sometimes being a "superhero" in life simply means showing up every single day and giving your best YOU to those who matter most...

On today's very special episode, Coach Chris and Coach Brian share their very personal lives as Dads. Both hosts of the Strong By Design show are fathers of young children. They share their struggles, their victories and their insights into what makes ordinary men heroic as Fathers and Husbands. If you're a Dad (or a Mom), you have to hear this amazing message!


"You feel unimportant, insignificant, well let me be the first to tell you that's a lie... you are significant, what you do matters and your kids need you."

-Brian Klepacki

"You have to be able to flip that switch.. turn that dial and even though it's been a long day, and maybe work you had your challenges and you're a bit drained, you have to give your best, get back to your A game for those 2-3 hours.."  

-Chris Wilson
