We had the good fortune of connecting with Prime Hall and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Prime, how has your work-life balance changed over time?
When i was in the military, especially special operations there was no balance. It was all “Go” mode which wasn’t sustainable in the long run. When i transitioned out in 2017 i slowly started to find balance. Instead of work/life balance I use more of an integration to create more flow in my life. I train elite athletes so one example is I will go surfing with one of the pro surfers that I coach. This is work / life integration for me because i get to get out into nature and get physical activity and confidence learning to surf which i get to connect more with one of my athletes.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
From my experience as a water survival instructor and special operations marine, I have been blessed with a lot of training and experiences that I can use to relate to athletes and build processes for my clients to breath through adversity and meet and exceed their goals. I have had the privilege to train and coach so many different types of professional athletes and individuals and teams that has helped elevate my coaching to the the next level along with my partner Don Tran and our other master instructor trainers and coaches like UFC Fighter Liz Carmouche.
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
Coggan Aquatics Swimming Pool in La Jolla (San Diego) is my favorite pool in the area so i would recommend stopping in there for a swim and then traveling to La Jolla Shores for beach vibe and hang. Mission Bay is always a good time as well. Cheers.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
For the last two years my partner Don Tran and I have been growing the Underwater Torpedo League and also training and coaching a range of different elite athletes. Using our principles of F.R.E.E. (Focus, Relaxation, Economy of Motion, and Efficient Breathing) We have trained NFL athletes, UFC Fighters, Olympic athletes, corporate teams and high level CEO’s. We are launching our official elite coaching platform this month at https://deependfitness.com/pages/elite-coaching.
