Abby Gustaitis is an American rugby union player. She debuted for the United States against France in 2016. She was selected for the squad to the 2017 Women's Rugby World Cup in Ireland.

Abby is currently working on her game during COVID-19 as she looks to the possibility of the Olympics Games in Tokyo, next year. Similar to Abby this episode had everything, here's what we covered:

  • How Abby is making the most of lockdown and the core skills she's been developing when you're not allowed at parks or grounds
  • Abby has a Bsc in Physiology and Neurobiology and this has helped her develop world-class habits and breaking down poor ones
  • How Abby focuses on her sleep and how this is directly related to skill development
  • How the Eagles have shifted their culture from secrecy to an open culture where everyone focuses on sharing their knowledge to improve as a group as opposed to individuals

This episode was a special one as it highlights the level of detail world-class athletes are willing to go to practice their trade even when everything is against them.

If you're looking to build a culture that revolves around science, skills and better habits this episode is our best one yet for it. Get into it and take some notes.
