Episode #182-Jesse Funk-Triathlete-Podcaster- Founder of Solpri
In 2016 Jesse was chest deep into training to fulfill his dream of becoming a professional triathlete. There’s people who say they want something. Then there are those who actually do something about it.
He always wanted to be the latter.
While enjoying endless hours of training including 6-7 hours of swimming a week, he developed a rash on his skin from the pool. It was then he realized that while he was training to be in the best physical shape he could be in that chemicals like chlorine in our environment are still having a negative impact on us.
So being someone who wants to actually do something about a problem he set out to create a natural product to deal with chlorine, thus Solpri’s Swim line was born.
In 2017 he introduced the now best-selling all-natural fungus fighting bar soap, Shield Soap, thus the shield line was born.
After a crash during Ironman 70.3 Eagleman in 2018 left his collarbone shattered and requiring surgery; his dream to become a professional triathlete was set aside.
But where one door closes another opens.
Thus he began doubling my efforts to share the love of natural healthy products that active people can use to take care of themselves in a toxic world.
Today he continues to run Solpri, sharing the stories of other awesome athletes on The Smart Athlete Podcast and looking for new ways to help live your life to its happiest healthiest potential.
