006. How to Take Control of Your Emotions & Thoughts with Camilla Salling Olsen


Summary

What if i told you that like Pinocchio, we at times have strings holding us back from being the real boy or girl we always wanted to be?


Especially under pressured situations, these strings can make us take the emotional route, instead of taking the value-driven path that actually leads us to the result we want. Our today’s guest will give us the scissors needed to cut those strings, for us to become our best self, under even the most stressful of situations. With her background in competitive free-diving and her Master thesis in Sports Psychology, she has developed a unique method of mental training that anybody can use to train their mental strength. Performances like holding her breath for 6 min and being able to swim 150 meters with no fins, corresponding to 6 laps under 1 breath in your regular 25 m pool, places her among the best female free-divers in Denmark! She coached yours truly for 3 months, earlier this year, to optimise training performance; resulting in multiple personal bests in training, including being able to hold the breath from about 2 min to over 4 min and from being able to swim 1 lap of 25 m with no fins underwater, up to almost 3 full laps.

Today's Guest

Camilla Salling Olsen is a newly baked mother, and an Elite Free-diver in Denmark who has via her Master thesis in Sports Psychology, developed a unique method for anyone to train mental toughness.

With the use of free diving (although not a must), she has helped elite athletes from different sports, and business people, optimise their performance by being more mindful about the thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations that happen, when they meet their pressured self. Performances like holding her breath for 6 min and being able to swim 150 meters with no fins, corresponding to 6 laps under 1 breath in your regular 25 m pool, places her among the best female free-divers in Denmark!

Who Is Dan Rémi

I’m an online plant-based fitness coach who quit his full time medical doctor gig to prevent people from becoming patients in the first place.


I’m the guy they come to when they want to end their frustrations, and gain clarity over how to achieve their health & fitness goals  - and keep it for life. No diet fads & "quick fixes" in this household.


I help them create a tailored flexible routine towards their goals that they can sustain even when life gets in the way, so they can sustainably lose the fat, build muscle & feel amazing on plants.

As a medical doctor, CrossFit athlete (transformed from very skinny), and after having coached hundreds 1-on-1 towards health & fitness independence since 2014, I have created a unique adaptable coaching system that gets people results every time.
