In this CF Podcast, we meet Bryan Warnecke – the young man with cystic fibrosis who was featured in the One Republic I Lived music video. He OWNS his disease every day by staying compliant and exercising. Active in various athletics, he is extremely passionate about ice hockey – a sport in which his team has won a state championship. Bryan’s goal is to become the first goalie with cystic fibrosis to play in the Olympics for Team USA.

In this podcast you’ll see how I have taken to the coaching word, despite dealing with cystic fibrosis. Growing up, I was lucky enough to have some great coaches along the way. They always knew how far they could push me – just beyond the breaking point. I owe a lot of my character and success in life to my mentors, especially my coaches. They taught me invaluable life lessons away from sports that I one-day hope to pass on to my athletes. Success is something that is attainable for everyone, but not without hard work.
