Have you ever pushed yourself to your max? Do you know what performing at your peak is really like?

This week I interviewed Eric Larsen (@ELexplore), a guy who has gone to the ends of Earth to find the answer to those questions.

A Polar Explorer, Eric has undertaken some serious expeditions to our planet’s most extreme locations and accomplished some truly unbelievable feats, including:

  • Eric successfully led his first expedition to the South Pole in 2008, covering nearly 600 miles in 41 days.
  • Eric is one of only a few Americans to have skied to both the North and South Poles.
  • On October 15th, 2010 Eric completed the Save the Poles expedition.
  • By completing a 750-mile ski traverse to the geographic South on January 2, 2010, reaching the North Pole a couple months later on Earth Day – April 22, 2010, and finally  reaching the summit of Mt. Everest on October 15th, 2010 he became the first person in history to reach the world’s three ‘poles’ within a 365-day period.
  • In 2014, Eric Larsen completed what could be the last full North Pole expedition in history. He filmed the entire journey and worked with Animal Planet to produce a two-hour special. You can check out the trailer.
  • Finally, this coming October Eric will release On Thin Ice: An Epic Final Quest into the Melting Arctic, a heart-stopping first hand account of his historic two man expedition to the North Pole.

Eric drops some serious knowledge on what it’s like to push through pain, do something that nobody has ever done before, and live a life of fulfillment.
