Rod Ciardullo, Founder and Chief Exercise Officer at RCX Mountain Bike Adventures
Hello everyone. Welcome back for another episode of the Outdoor Adventure Series Podcast. The Outdoor Adventure Series celebrates individuals & families, businesses, and organizations that seek out and promote the exploration, stewardship, and enjoyment of the great outdoors. Our guest today is Rod Ciardullo.Rod is the Founder and Chief Exercise Officer at RCX Mountain Bike Adventures. For over 20 years, he has been creating and implementing custom, personalized fitness programs for busy professionals that have helped them transform their lives.Aha MomentOn our first Sedona trip, we had the bronze medalist of the 2021 Mountain Biking World Championships in the 60 to 69-year-old division on our trip. After the second day, he declared, "That was the most spectacular day of riding I have ever had!" My reply was, "That's amazing, but I think you will change your mind tomorrow since that ride will be even more spectacular."Insight2GoI like to tell my online fitness clients to book or sign up for something that is bigger and bolder than their comfort zone. Something that gets them out of bed in the morning and into the gym, or on the bike to better prepare for the event. Something that pulls them away from the 9 pm double scoop of ice cream, and has them committed to being a better version of themselves. I like to say, "The magic happens outside of your comfort zone!"To learn more about Rod and his work, visit his website at rcxfitness.com.You can see more of Mitch’s work on these social sites:FacebookLink: https://www.facebook.com/RCX-Mountain-Biking-Camps-and-Adventures-110501778219960InstagramLink:https://www.instagram.com/rcx.fitnessThe Outdoor Adventure Series is a Podcast Production of Fox Coaching, Inc.

I'm continually amazed at how many people are inspired by the vision to start Bikepacking, especially people for whom big, outdoor adventures haven't always been on their bucket lists.Insight2GoThey didn't teach me in school how important cultivating relationships is to help get things done. We can have the best and biggest ideas that we think everyone should get on board with, but it can only happen at the speed of relationship building. So many doors have opened for me personally and professionally because of the time I've invested in getting to know people - and I can often trace situations where things haven't worked out as I've wanted to relationships that I haven't spent enough time on.To learn more about the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, visit their website at www.railstotrails.orgClick here for more about the Great American Rail-Trail.Link: https://www.railstotrails.org/greatamericanrailtrail/Click here for Trail Maps & Guides for Biking, Hiking, and Running Trails on TrailLink. Link: https://www.traillink.com/Click here to discover ways to participate in Celebrate Trails Day, an annual spring celebration of America’s trails.Link: https://www.railstotrails.org/experience-trails/celebrate-trails/To learn more about Kevin and his journey, check out his By Way of the Trail blog at https://www.bywayofthetrail.com/You can also find more information about the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, The Great American Trail, and Kevin, on the following social sites.FacebookLink: https://www.facebook.com/greatamericanrailtrailInstagram - Ihttps://www.instagram.com/greatamericanrailtrailInstagram IILink: https://www.instagram.com/bywayofthetrail/Here are a few additional external links that Kevin shared during our episode:Warrior Expeditions’ commitment to the mission of The Great American Rail-Trail.Northern Cheyenne Breakout Legacy Fund to promote the development of the Northern Cheyenne Healing TrailClick here to learn more about the Outdoor Writers Association of AmericaThe Outdoor Adventure Series is a podcast production of Fox Coaching, Inc.

And, things that, you know are, you're just amazed that. When cool things happen, document them. And then, just save them. So then when you're having a rough day, you can go back and look at the cool things you've done.And I think by writing those things down and documenting them, that when you have those rough days where it just seems like nothing's working and you're really annoyed to go back and look at those cool things that that life has given you as you've gone along through your career.You can also learn more about the BLM Southern Nevada on the following social sites:TwitterFacebookYouTubeFlickrTo learn more about Red Rock Canyon, visit their website at https://friendsredrock.org/To learn more about the Outdoor Writers Association of America, visit their website at https://owaa.org.The Outdoor Adventure Series is a podcast production of Fox Coaching, Inc.

I've talked to so many people that say they can't, don't have time, or can't afford it. There are ways to make it work and make it affordable.

I believe it was attributed to Einstein, and its, great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. When you want to pursue spending time in the outdoors and doing multi-site Section Hikes, or maybe going and hiking the Appalachian trail, or starting a travel business during a pandemic, a lot of people will tell you you're crazy, or that's not a great idea, or maybe you should have a backup plan or things along those lines., but I think a lot of times that people who have that drive and want to achieve. Sometimes you got to make the leap and don't be afraid of it.Book RecommendationsRyan recommends Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills Paperback – Illustrated, October 5, 2017, by The Mountaineers.To learn more about Elite Custom Adventures, visit their website at https://elitecustomadventures.com/You are also invited to visit ECA on the following social sites: Instagram FacebookLinkedInThe Outdoor Adventure Series is a podcast production of Fox Coaching, Inc.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - Teddy RooseveltRoosevelt, T.
