This week on the Lift Heavy Run Long Podcast, we got to chat with Elijah Hassertt. Elijah is an excellent example of the discipline and motivation necessary to compete at a high level in both strength and mountain running events. Elijah ran his first half marathon at the age of fourteen under the encouragement of his mother. He then ran cross country in high school, while beginning the physical training by which he would become known. He studied and trained to obtain multiple training certifications to include Training for Warriors. Following his passion, he developed his own brand, Never Defeated Athletics. His athletic achievements include a Deadlift of 585 pounds, multiple ultra marathon wins, and various other ranging accomplishments. At only 22 years of age, Elijah is now training other strongman competitors, ultra-runners, and everyday superheroes in a constant pursuit of excellence.
