Are you living up to your true potential? 2021 Olympic hopeful Michael Andrew returns to the podcast to talk about his recent success and embracing his talent and hard work so he never “wastes grace” in his life. He also talks with Kelly and Maria about his mindset change when it comes to competitively swimming the 200 IM -- and how he remains grounded in his faith and family as his clout in the swimming world continues to grow.

Michael Andrew is a professional swimmer and is an owner of the Michael Andrew Swimming Academy and the New York Breakers team, where he also swims (in the International Swimming League). He first gained notoriety for breaking numerous National Age Group Records in his teens, currently holding more than 100 National Age Group records and has since become a multiple time US National Champion and World Champion for team USA. 

Coached by his father Peter Andrew, Michael credits much of his success to his training style, USRPT, aka Ultra Short Race Pace Training. And his mother Tina, a former professional athlete herself, is the General Manager of the New York Breakers.
