Max#31: Andy North – Endurance Athlete

The Maximise Potential Podcast, brought to you in association with the Award-winning Recruitment Group Jenrick, is pleased to release its latest interview with Andy North as he approaches the Sunshine Challenge 2011 – Yorkshire to Gibraltar.

Welcome to episode 31 of the Maximise Potential Podcast.

In our last episode with Bremont Watches, Nick English used an expression which I believe is the perfect introduction to our guest on today’s episode. Nick was referring to the Bremont Ambassadors when he spoke of ‘ordinary people achieving extraordinary things.’

Andy North is a perfect example of this. This 50 year old Yorkshireman, is about to embark on one of the most intense endurance events I’ve ever heard. What I find particularly inspirational about Andy’s story is that he’s managed to train for this incredible event whilst juggling family commitments, running a business and also attempting to reach his goal of raising £50,000 for two Armed Forces Charities.

As you can probably tell, I’m resisting revealing what Andy’s actual challenge is at this stage, and also the challenges he has already completed. However, what I will say is that anyone who is interested in understanding how someone like Andy prepares mentally for taking on an event like this, is in for a real treat with this interview.

Please enjoy . . .
