IRONMIND * – The Movie

* “Ironmind – The Movie” is not affiliated with Ironmind Enterprises, Inc., the owner of the trademark IRONMIND®

This is the story of my challenge to race the Ironman 70.3 triathlon with just 90-days to train on a 100% plant-based diet under the guidance of the hardcore punk icon John Joseph (lead singer of the Cro-Mags). Making this movie forced me to confront the dark demons from my past, including a struggle with drug addiction and subsequent overdose.

I hope this movie will inspire millions worldwide to face their demons head on and heal themselves mentally, physically and spiritually. Much love to you, Brian.

I just watched the movie, Ironmind, and it is absolutely amazing. An inspirational story. It was so well filmed with heartfelt stories from Brian and John! Because of this story I am searching for a triathlon watch, I have my treadmill ready, my food cooked and packaged for the next couple of weeks, and am going back to training too. Who knows what I can achieve. I just love this website and all the fabulous interviews. Thank you Brian Rose.

I grew up in the North Bronx 1960-73 (age 4-17) across the street from Van Cortland Park. Never got downtown that much, played basketball at night under the streetlight on one end of the court. Only seen first 5 minutes of your movie so far but gets me thinking.
