ASHISH NATHU

January 24, 2023

8:00 am





On this episode of The Rich Equation Podcast, Ashish is joined by Justin True. After battling depression and an abusive upbringing as a child, Justin decided at 18 that he couldn’t continue living through the traumatic events that scarred his psyche. When his second attempt to take his own life failed, he had a fundamental shift in his outlook on life. True’s new outlook on life had pushed him to create the True Triathlon — a roughly 50-mile swim from Key Largo, FL to Key Biscayne, FL, a 3400-mile bike ride to San Diego, CA, and a 600-mile run to raise $500,000 for Mental Health Awareness Month. The True Triathlon is Justin’s first endeavor to bring together the power and resources of individuals and businesses to support the organizations battling this crisis head-on. Justin focuses on mental performance coaching, strength coaching, triathlon coaching, and hiring for public speaking events from schools to corporations.


In this episode, Justin talks about overcoming his inner demons through his strength and fitness journey. He talks about how he started True Triathlon and why he created it.
