“Love your customer and the problem you're solving. Not everyone's going to work on their passion, but you need to be excited about the problem you're solving day in and day out, or you just won't be able to stick with it.” – Robbie Bent

ABOUT OTHERSHIP

Robbie Bent is the founder of Othership, which is building a network of physical locations that combine saunas and ice baths with guided group classes, as well as an app, so you can do breathwork anytime, anywhere. In this episode, we're going to go really deep on something we all do around 22,000 times per day, which is simply breathing in and out. It's something we're never taught, we aren't even conscious of, and yet the number one metric for determining health and lifespan is your lung capacity.

We'll talk about how Robbie is building a company completely focused on building community through ancient practices like breathwork, saunas and ice baths. We'll explore everything you never knew about breathing, including how we've turned into a population of mouth breathers and why that's so bad, and why breathing through your nose is so much better. And we'll get a peek at the flagship location for Othership that Robbie and his team have been working on for the last three years.
