David Goggins Resources

David Goggins has been a low level celebrity within the ultra endurance community for well over a decade, but lately, with his appearance in Living with a Seal, on the Joe Rogan podcast, and in his new book, he’s blowing up. I created this page to give people a central place to find lots of things Goggins.

Here they are:

Books

 

Goggins’s memoir, called Can’t Hurt Me is available in print and audio. Personally, I recommend the audio, which includes the entire book, and extended conversations between David and his ghostwriter Adam Skolnick. Buy it, seriously.

Goggins first got mainstream attention for his role as foil and inspiration in Jesse Itzler’s Living with a Seal. I loved this book and you will too. I reviewed it here. Buy it.

Website and Social Media

Goggins has a website, with tons of information on it.

Goggins is on instagram here and you should definitely, definitely follow him.

Goggins is on facebook here which he often utilizes for live videos.

Podcasts

David has been on scores of podcasts, but three of the best are below.

First appearance Rich Roll. 

Rich Roll and David Goggins

This was David’s first appearance ever on a podcast and I think came about because of a chance meeting between Goggins and Roll on the street.  Of all his many appearances on podcasts, I think this is the best. Honest as fuck and deeply compelling. 

First appearance on Joe Rogan 

You can tell in this interview that Rogan is kind of awed and definitely inspired, by Goggins life story. Generally, Rogan can be annoying, but he so clearly respects Goggins in this interview that his more bro-ish tendencies are put in check.

Second Appearance on Joe Rogan. 

By Goggins second appearance on the podcast, Rogan is clearly more comfortable and familiar with Goggins and his story. This is two plus hours of classic Goggins inspiration gold and well worth a listen.

Videos

There’s scores of videos of Goggins on youtube, here;s three of my favorites.

Life Run Shoot – Goggins and Cameron Hanes.

There’s a moment, towards the end of this video, where Goggins is benching and shouting “Who’s Gonna Carry the Boats?!?” that I think is just peak Goggins. If you don’t find it inspiring, you probably don’t belong on this page

Taking Souls

A kind of standard youtube inspiration video is taken to new heights with Goggins unrelenting message of mental toughness.


Pull Up Record Attempt

Literally a video of Goggins doing pull ups, which I have watched more times than I want to admit to get myself pumped to hit the gym.

Friday Inspiration — David Goggins

I’ve been listening to Jessi Itzler’s wonderful Living with a SEAL: 31 Days Training with the Toughest Man on the Planet
on my runs. It’s hilarious, thought provoking and inspiring. As everyone who follows these things knowns by now the anonymous “Seal” in the book is legendary ultra-runner / crazy person David Goggins.

Goggins is a strange guy. Famous, but almost completely absent on social media, and not interviewed nearly as much as he should be. Finding quality video of this fascinating athlete is hard. This short video isn’t great, but its good, and it gives you a flavor for the type of man Goggins is. Enjoy.
