Episode Fifteen of Strong Enough Podcast brings Chris Reilly, a Muay Thai Coach, UFC Champion Coach, and former IKKC Muay Thai Champion. Chris began his martial arts training at the age of five and eventually moved to Thailand to learn the art from the experts. He was the first American to win the prestigious King's Birthday in Thailand. Chris then entered the ring/ octagon as a coach, and his resume includes coaching UFC Champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.
During this episode, Chris and I talk about being an elite athlete and training in a foreign country in a sport that many regarded as pure entertainment for betting purposes. Chris also shares relationship struggles he experienced as a result of focusing all his time and attention on his sport. Chris discusses how he has transformed his passion from fighting to coaching and now, to promoting. Finally, Chris tells us why his favorite tattoo is the name of a 1988 movie.
