How a Fighter Discovered His Path to Mental Health: Jason Melendez's Story


We live in a world where we are constantly being asked to put on a brave face, keep pushing through, or acting like everything is okay. But what if we were more open about our struggles and used them to inspire others?

Vulnerability has the power to bring us closer together, allowing us to connect with each other on an emotional level and find strength in shared experiences.

An incredibly honestly, and heart felt conversation had between to people we cherish dearly and hold in such high regards.

A powerful start to a new season of Coach Pete's Podcast with The Chef!

Thank you both for being you. We love you guys!
