XPT: What made you want to become an XPT Certified Coach? 

SM: I’ve followed Laird and his lifestyle since the 90’s. After I heard of the XPT certification, it completely aligned with my mindset and wellness principles.

XPT: How has XPT immediately impacted you and/or your clients? 

SM: XPT has immediately impacted me with redefining stress and creating a new adaptation response to life.  I feel mentally stronger and physically more versatile.  Clients are experiencing a “stoked” sensation after classes.  These programs add diversity to a monotonous gym routine.

XPT: What’s your favorite XPT related tip, discipline, activity, etc. to teach your clients and why?

SM: My favorite XPT discipline is water-based programming. I’m a huge fan of beach conditioning protocols as well. Holding breath combined with movement provides a fatigue that the normal fitness enthusiast is not accustomed to doing.  Sand adds the elements of stabilization, balance, and core strengthening that can be challenging and physically rewarding for personal fitness growth. Overall, water is where it’s at for me!

XPT: What advice would you give to someone considering becoming certified, attending an experience or workshop or anyone considering XPT in general?

SM: 3 focus points of advice:

  • Be open and creative to play with ways to utilize XPT. It’s not a one way lifestyle so don’t worry about making mistakes and taking a risk. Just make the mistakes on yourself as you grow in the XPT lifestyle.
  • Play or it’s not going to be fun. Reflect on being a kid where EVERYTHING you did was performed in a functional movement pattern. We can create an injury-preventative program for adults by living like a child.
  • Find an adventure in a variety of elements. Seek places that are very hot, cold, peaceful, in nature, water-based, etc. Everywhere I travel, I incorporate XPT, whether it is through morning breath work, pool workouts using my body weight, or finding the coldest water, whether that be a natural glacier spring or a bath tub full of ice.

XPT: Can you share with us a quick success story or “WOW” moment with either yourself or a client as it pertains to XPT?

SM: WOW moment with a client was with THE ICE! Yes, big break throughs happen here! A recent client had a horrible childhood incident with falling in a frozen lake and nearly drowning. She explained, “I’m not going near the ice bath.”  After focusing on breath and spending quality time getting her relaxed, she took that mindset in the pool.  Again, stayed relaxed, focused, and became comfortable holding her breath.  She wanted to conquer the ice so having a female partner was key. She succeeded! It was a tearful moment to be part of her journey and accomplishment.

XPT: Anything else you want to tell us? A quote I remember from the Certification? A cool client story? A personal story as it pertains to XPT in my life? Etc.

SM: It’s a lifestyle to practice and improve on everyday.  I now play like my 5 year old and 3 year old boys – climbing swimming, jumping, etc. except a lot more relaxed then the 2 crazy monkeys. I’m excited to continue to learn from others in XPT, share my success and become the curators of fitness and health.  Taylor Sommerville, XPT Coach, “THE ICE IS THE GREATEST TEACHER” is a lesson I use every day.
