EP#207 - Empowering Men The Alpha Hippie Way
In this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing a good friend of mine who has been the podcast before (EP#43), Angelo Sisco.
Angelo and I have known each other for over 30 years and the man who he is today is inspiring to see.
We both grew up in Melrose Park, IL, went to high school together and so much more.
In this episode, Angelo and I discuss the lack of men learning what it is to be a man. In many other cultures, they take men, at a specific age, and teach them what it is meant to be a man.
I know I wish I had this when I was growing up instead of learning from the hard knocks of life.
Who is Angelo Sisco?
On October 15th, 2002, Angelo Sisco was involved in a hit and run motorcycle accident that changed his life forever. In an instant, he went from being a 20-year-old entrepreneur to someone fighting to save his leg and his way of life.
After 8 surgeries, two months in a hospital bed, 5 months of daily rehab and the encouraging news from his doctors that any kind of athletics is permanently out of the question, Angelo fell into a deep depression.In 2009 he discovered CrossFit and everything changed once again.
He had a new focus. He had a new purpose. He lost 100 pounds, which catapulted a 10-year journey that he couldn’t even imagine.
During the 2010s, Angelo opened O’Hare CrossFit and CrossFit Harwood Heights, consulted over 400 affiliates worldwide, co-founded Lifestyle Nutrition and Conquer Athlete, became an international speaker on how to succeed as an affiliate owner, coached multiple CrossFit games, competitors.
Angelo’s success in coaching and business gave him the confidence to begin what he would consider his most important journey of them all, self-development in 2015. After years of deep inner work, reflection, and growth Angelo titled his journey of self-discovery, Alpha Hippie.
In true Angelo Sisco fashion, he followed what inspired him and began sharing his message through his podcast Alpha Hippie, and began mentoring other men on their path to self-discovery.
In late 2019 Angelo realized he was at a crossroads in his career. A choice had to be made; to stay in a place of comfort or step into the identity that was calling him, Alpha Hippie. Angelo chose to step fully into Alpha Hippie.
In 2020, emits the most unprecedented time in our recent history, Angelo removed himself from all business ventures that were CrossFit related, moved his new family to San Clemente, California, and partnered up with Markus Gerszi to embark on a renewed more focus version of Alpha Hippie.
Alpha Hippie’s mission is to help overwhelmed men over 30, who are stuck in stress and burnout, reconnect to their mission and rebuild their lifestyle, so they can enjoy their free time again and get back to crushing it at work again.
Alpha Hippie share’s their mission via their men’s Facebook group, Be the Bad-Ass you were born to be, the Alpha Hippie podcast, and program for men entitled Alpha Hippie Foundations.
In his free time, Angelo loves to travel, eat great food, and spend time with the people closest to him.
