[EP51] What I Learned Cold Plunging 89 Times In 160 Days | Trevor Turnbull

In this episode I spoke about the obsession I have with COLD PLUNGING! 🙂

Yes, I know what you are thinking. WHY would I go in a cold plunge (willingly) 89 times in 160 days! Well, I can tell you it’s been the most transformative experience of my life. And, not just for the health benefits … it’s allowed me the challenge I was seeking to create impactful change in multiple areas of my life.

I spoke about WHY I decided to take the leap, the research I did before doing it, the lessons I learned along the way and why YOU might consider joining me in a cold plunge soon!

“My wife asks me every couple of weeks…why do you cold plunge?  And, why do you KEEP doing it? I figured I’d answer that question in this episode. :)” – Trevor Turnbull

“The first time I went in my cold plunge I lasted 30-45 seconds and I thought I was going to die.” – Trevor Turnbull

‘I’ve jumped in the cold plunge 89 times in the last 160 days.  My longest streak was 12 days in a row.  It’s hardwired my brain to lean into doing hard things (even when I don’t want to).” – Trevor Turnbull

“The reason I started cold plunging back in December was because I knew I wanted to push myself. I knew I wanted to commit to growth. I knew it was going to be uncomfortable. I was going to challenge my beliefs and lean into things that would cause me to level up.” – Trevor Turnbull

“My intention when I first started doing cold plunges was to train my brain and body to feel the pain & fear … and do it anyway.  I could train myself to do that in all areas of my life.” – Trevor Turnbull
