81. Open Mic: Syn Martinez

“I had to go from the black devil to the black god.”

Syn Martinez

The energy, the mission, the movement… Afrobrutality! I am so pumped to welcome Syn Martinez, longtime friend and Afrobrutality Founder, on to the T&T mic, we go way back and are catching up. Syn and I discuss the early days of the fit biz and some of our initial projects, man have things come along way… let’s just say Instagram wasn’t even a thing yet, ha. Syn shares his journey in his trademark raw fashion- this is why we love him. If you know me, you know authenticity is Queen/King, Syn is your human for the truth. We jump right into the deep, so grab the life vest.

Fighting for equality is in Syn’s blood, currently he’s carrying the touch establishing Afrobrutality in 2008, creating a brand, lifestyle, and now a mission. He recently secured a new, large scale deal with Puma. We discuss some of the good and bad biz deals along the way, the lack of diversity in fitness/CrossFit, how health is wealth, and how we can collectively work together to LISTEN and work to make this world a better place. Check out his new line of gear (link below) it just might inspire you to make a positive change NOW (seriously, a shirt might change your life). Syn drops some “you heard it here first” on this cast, so tune in with pen in tow. Thank you Syn, keep up the good fight, as you do!!

Afrobrutality:

AFROBRUTALITY IS A MINDSET FOR PEOPLE WHO CARE ABOUT BEING HEALTHY, WHO CARE ABOUT SUCCEEDING IN LIFE BY ANY AND ALL MEANS, WHO WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO ADD POSITIVITY TO THEIR LIFE AND THE PEOPLE AROUND THEM.

“WE’RE AFTER A MINDSET OF PEOPLE WHO WANT TO LEAD A POSITIVE LIFE AND WON’T LET LIFE DICTATE HOW THAT LOOKS AND FEELS.”
