What You Will Learn In This Episode: 

In this episode we talk to professional soccer player Christian Eissele. At 23, Christian is in his prime and an avid student of the game. With a strong faith, family ties and commitment to the game, there is no doubt that Christian’s career is headed upward! We will talk to him about some of his daily eating habits, recovery methods and favorite snacks. The biggest thing I learned from Christian and I hope you will walk away with is that we are all on a journey. That journey has many different phases. The best thing you can do on this journey that is your life is to be the best you can at each phase in hopes that it will lead you to a next phase that is bigger and better than the one before it. Christian has made the most out of his time on the road and has a YouTube series that he calls “Behind The Kings,” which takes you on a behind the scenes look at his team as they prepare for a game. In this episode, Christian interviews the two goal keepers for the team and we also get to see them in action at practice. Spectacular!
