This is a 3-day event for athletes & coaches who are working to improve and grow every day.
This year, Granite Games is offering a one of a kind summit.

View the entire event LIVE, for FREE.

For the first time ever, The Granite Games is hosting an online summit bringing the best minds in the health & fitness industries together to help athletes and coaches grow.

We had an amazing time at last September’s Fitness Conference, but we wanted to make the VALUE accessible to everyone. We thought, what if we could take away the cost of a plane ticket and a hotel stay? What if we could bring the industry’s most trusted, inspiring minds together to speak on their area of expertise to help us all improve?

So here we are – taking The Granite Games Online Athlete & Coaches Summit to you directly – 100% online.

The entire live event will be at no cost to you.

However — if you want access to each speaker’s presentation after they go live, you can purchase access to all of these presentations. Purchasing early saves you money – after the event airs, 30-day access pricing will go up!

Mike Cazayoux

President of Working Against Gravity (WAG)

Michael Cazayoux, president of WAG, specializes in helping his team and clients “get out of their own way” by identifying self-limiting beliefs and ineffective behaviors.

In fact, the back-to-back CrossFit World Cup Champion is no stranger to this unique process of self-examination. At the impressionable age of 17, Cazayoux confronted his own limiting beliefs and ineffective behaviors head on, attending drug rehabilitation to overcome his addiction to opiates. It’s this experience that inspired a love of health and fitness on a personal level, which later translated into a passion for coaching and mentoring inside and out of the gym.

Prior to joining WAG, Michael cofounded Brute Strength, an online fitness training company, where he continues to contribute to operations and remains as the podcast host.

Beyond “the office,” the young entrepreneur is most proud of his marriage to Adee Cazayoux, his partner in love, life and fitness. In his free time, Cazayoux enjoys backpacking, snowboarding, woodworking, bow shooting, hunting and creating enormous value in people’s lives — especially his closest family and friends.
