EP #18 Kyle Kingsbury

By Ward Richmond

“Don’t talk about it, be about it”

Kingsbu grew up in the Bay Area, San Jose-ish
Grew up in a tumultuous household, parents were unhappy and that bled into his well-being
Parents wound up splitting, it was hard, but led to a more understanding relationship with dad
junior college was what you might expect, substances, football, and looking for love in all the wrong places
Transferred to ASU to walk on the football team
Most of his college career was just coasting, not enjoying class just to stay eligible for football where he wasjust riding the pine
Felt forced into a suicide attempt on campus(listen for the full story)
SPOILER ALERT: He didn’t do it
Surprise, it led to a transformation in his life and drive. Kyle started training to fight MMA
Fought well, went 7-1 locally in AZ and moved back to NorCal to train with Cain Velasquez and other legends
This also led to his deeper interest in learning about his mind, body and spirit. He started reading Eckhart Tolle, Joe Dispenza, Bruce Lipton and Paul Chek
Most of this reading and self betterment came during his many hours bouncing, bartending, managing a strip-club, living in his mom’s detached garage
Retired from UFC in 2014 and made another transition into a calmer life with family and roots
Started his podcast in 2017 after his 2015 appearance on Rogan
Ayahuasca in 2017 led him to PaleoFx, where he met Aubrey Marcus and started down the path to Austin TX
Fit For Service was the next thing after Onnit. Kyle got to keep his podcast, lifestyle and love for learning fully alive to this day
