Catching up With Josh Bridges

As we set our sites on the next stage of The Games season, the athletes behind the scenes are preparing their bodies for the next grueling test. We had a chance to catch up with PowerDot athlete, Josh Bridges. Check out what he had to say…

  1. You could compete as a Master's athlete, but you're choosing to compete as an Open athlete - Why did you make that choice?

I didn’t want a back up plan. My goal is to go to the games and compete to be the fittest on earth in the open division.


  1. What are some of the unique challenges for a more, shall we say, a "seasoned" athlete in terms of things like programming, performance, and recovery?

Just have to really focus on recovery more and be a little smarter about your workouts.


  1. What motivates you to keep training for, and competing at, the Games year after year?  

I love it! I love competing. I love pushing myself to my limits.

  1. Do you have a post-Games ritual? Is there a specific meal you crave that you indulge in? Do you celebrate with your boys?

I typically try to go on a trip afterwards. Nothing crazy. Just get away and spend time with family.


  1. If you could spend the day with one celebrity, who would it be?

George Bush it would be amazing to hang out with him and hear some of his stories.


  1. If/When you decide to stop competing as a Games athlete, what would your next career be?

Not sure yet. Possibly a coffee roaster.
