This week's episode is a special one to me. Meet Denis Morton, one of the many talented instructors at OnePeloton. What I love so much about this interview is Denis' honesty, and the forthcoming way in which he shares his wins and losses in his world, and how everything he's done has helped shape his life as it is today.

 

I'm lucky to have had the chance to interview Denis, and you're lucky to hear it.

 

This is one of the best conversations I've had on FTN since I launched the podcast over two years ago.

 

Enjoy!

 

-Peter
