Sevan Matossian (00:01):

Bam. We’re live. Hi.

Rebecca Fuselier (00:03):

Thanks for doing this.

Rebecca Fuselier (00:06):

Yeah, thank you for inviting me back.

Sevan Matossian (00:08):

Oh, oh, where are you again? Rebecca?

Rebecca Fuselier (00:11):

Dallas, or just north of Dallas.

Sevan Matossian (00:13):

So you are, are you two out? It’s, is it 9 0 1 there? Mm-hmm.

Rebecca Fuselier (00:16):


Sevan Matossian (00:16):

Awesome. Thank you. Yeah. Is this a good time for you?

Rebecca Fuselier (00:20):

Uh, yeah. I just got my running workout done a little bit earlier

Sevan Matossian (00:24):

Already. Already. You’re one in mm-hmm. <affirmative>.

Rebecca Fuselier (00:26):

Mm-hmm. <affirmative>.

Sevan Matossian (00:27):

What? Tell me, uh, that kind of fucks up my opening, uh, line. I was gonna say, I, I was hanging out with you last night, uh, in front of the TV and on my phone, and I was like, I, I can’t say this about a lot of people, but it looks like it’s fun to be you. You know, like there’s some people on the internet, you’re like, oh, I want that person’s body, or I wish I had their car, or I wish I had their girlfriend, or I wish I had. And I was just like, fuck all that. It just looks like it’s fun being Rebecca, but then if you ran this morning, maybe I got a

Rebecca Fuselier (00:56):

<laugh>. Well, that, that was, that was less fun than the other things that I do. But it’s just, it, it makes all the other things that I do more fun. Let’s put it in that, that

Sevan Matossian (01:05):

Way you make, you make a concerted effort to make life fun.

Rebecca Fuselier (01:08):

Oh, yeah. Yeah. What’s the point, right? What, what’s the point if it’s not,

Sevan Matossian (01:12):

And, and you have to make an effort to make life fun. It’s just, it’s, it doesn’t happen on its own.

Rebecca Fuselier (01:19):

I mean, I feel like we all do. Right,

Sevan Matossian (01:21):

Right, right. Yeah. That’s what I meant. Sorry. Not, not it was a rhetorical you, not you in general, but there’s some people who just like, expect life to be fun, and it’s like, clearly, like you’re going out of your way to make shit fun. Like, I just go to your Instagram and I’m like, oh, this is a fun place to be.

Rebecca Fuselier (01:34):

Yeah. I mean, the, the, the biggest thing is that I, I’m never bored. I think that’s like the worst word I could ever use. I was like, I’m, I’m never bored. If I’m bored, I have, I have a serious problem on my hands.

Sevan Matossian (01:46):

One of my kids, one of my kids used that word just this morning. I go, Hey, why are you dressed? And he goes, because I’m bored, <laugh>. And, uh, I go, you don’t even know what that means. He goes, you’re right. <laugh> <laugh>. I goes, so why are you dressed? He goes, I don’t know. I’m like, better <laugh>. Okay. I like that. Oh, look at Barry already a dollar 99. Hi, Rebecca.

Rebecca Fuselier (02:04):


Sevan Matossian (02:05):

Um, Sean. Wow. Hi, Rebecca. I love you. I love you too. And no one’s messing around. Yeah. Even better. Nothing to dislike about the person. Um, fu no

Rebecca Fuselier (02:20):


Sevan Matossian (02:21):


Rebecca Fuselier (02:23):


Sevan Matossian (02:24):

Fu does

Rebecca Fuselier (02:25):

Actually the correct pronunciation. The French pronunciation is Fusili

Sevan Matossian (02:31):

Fu. How do you say it?

Rebecca Fuselier (02:34):

Fusel, just simplify it, you know,

Sevan Matossian (02:36):

Fusil. Okay. Uh, fussier is getting strong, man, good work on the gains. Is that true? Are you getting strong?

Rebecca Fuselier (02:44):

Yeah. Yeah. I think so. Definitely moving some weights that I couldn’t move last year, so That’s exciting.

Sevan Matossian (02:50):

You were already strong. Basically what they’re saying is, is you’re getting strong relative to this crazy group of horses that you run with.

Rebecca Fuselier (02:58):

Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. Mm-hmm.

Sevan Matossian (02:59):

<affirmative>. It is, it is a crazy group that you run with.

Rebecca Fuselier (03:01):

Mm-hmm. <affirmative>.

Sevan Matossian (03:03):

Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. Um, I, you know, it was, it was, um, it was fun having you at the games. There was a kind of a, um, every woman’s kind of, uh, feel to you like, like, like you were the people’s choice, right?

Rebecca Fuselier (03:19):


Sevan Matossian (03:20):

But, but, but there was kind of also like a, um, a Cody Anderson kind of p piece to you. Like, will we ever see, you know, the crowd will stand up and cheer for you and go crazy, um, or maybe a Chris Spieler, but, but that’s it. She’s done. But it, it doesn’t, it actually doesn’t look that way. It looks like people like me who just thought, oh, how cute Rebecca made it. It looks like we might eat our words. Like, like, you’re, you’re going for it.

Rebecca Fuselier (03:43):

I mean, that, that’s the plan. And it’s, it’s not only to prove like all those words from others, um, wrong, but also I wanna prove it to myself that, that I, I, I’m getting back and I feel, I feel good. Like, I think, and I was really trying to go through this in my head of like, where I was last year compared to this year. And it’s really just, you

Sevan Matossian (04:08):

Mean, sorry, you mean at this ti you mean at this time outside from the games. Okay. Last

Rebecca Fuselier (04:12):

Year. Yeah. And it’s, it’s actually, it’s actually really cool. I mean, we’re a little bit sooner than where, um, ki kind of we chatted, you and I chatted, uh, from last year. It’s a little bit earlier because we chatted after, after semi-finals, after there was trash talk everywhere, you know? I haven’t forgotten about that.

Sevan Matossian (04:29):

Oh, good.

Rebecca Fuselier (04:30):

<laugh>. And, um, I was just kind of putting myself like, where was Rebecca last year? And I think we’ve always been on this upwards trajectory, and I’ve always felt like I, I’ve been steadily growing. And then last year was just like the Mario Mushroom power up that it’s just like, here we go. Like, I feel like I’m, I’m good to go. And, um, ready to, like, I got that super boost and that confidence that I needed to go for it.

Sevan Matossian (05:00):

There’s this, um, and, and not that this matters at all that, I mean, obviously this does, this is just, this is like eating cotton candy at the fair. Like we’re, we’re gonna eat some, but we we’re gonna eat it in the quarter, and hopefully no one sees us eating it. Right? <laugh>, it’s just, so, it’s the lowest form of humanity eating cotton candy. But it has to be done once in a while. Um, if you make it to the games this year, there does become something. There is something about you that’s very, uh, Chris Spieler, Dan Bailey, Josh Bridges, there’s a, a funness to you that people can like, really get behind. Um, uh,

Rebecca Fuselier (05:42):

There’s some big names to be up there with.

Sevan Matossian (05:44):

Well, you’re, you’re, you’re such a, you’re such a unique athlete, uh, in, in your, in, in all your presentations, your stature, uh, your physique, uh, your demeanor, um, your, your approach. It’s all, um, it’s fun. There’s, I, it, it, it’s you in that world of superficiality and, and money and fame and attention. There’s, I mean, you, you, um, you know, in the U F C, they call it the it factor. You have it, but, but then, but then you still gotta, you still gotta get in there. And it’s, is is it just nuts getting into the CrossFit games? Is it just, yeah.

Rebecca Fuselier (06:20):

Yeah. And, and it’s, it’s funny cuz we’re getting up to like hype the hype in everything leading up to semi-finals and everything. And I’m like, I, I keep telling everyone, and every, everybody likes to ask you, making it back to the games. I’m like, that’s the plan. And I’m sure like every competitor out there gets asked that. But if you are like, there is like, maybe like a few people that can say, yeah, you’ll, you’ll see me a again at the games, like 100% certainty. Everything else is up in the air. Like, it, it’s fair game to everyone. I think last year I was really like, threw myself in, in that pack of like, like the cards of like, I have a chance. I’m gonna go for it. I have a chance. Um, it’s, it’s anyone’s game. You gotta, the the field is getting so freaking competitive that like, you just, you have to go out there and execute perfectly to make it so,

Sevan Matossian (07:12):

Uh, um, will you, hold on one second. This is mm-hmm. <affirmative>, I, I apologize here. Uh, Jessica, I, I owe you an explanation. Uh, Jessica says, Jethro. Yeah. Looks like, uh, I’ll be permanent detective, which I wanted. I was put on a list being cautiously optimistic. Uh, by the way, congratulations. I want, uh, Jessica Valenzuela is, uh, police officer Jessica, a few days ago. I said something on the show, and I’ve been thinking about you nonstop ever since. Um, I said it and I said that, um, I, I think it could have come across that women, I said, women shouldn’t be police officers and they shouldn’t be in the military. Let me, I just wanna refine you more what I’m saying. I don’t, first of all, uh, uh, if, if there’s a role for something that’s intrinsically women, they should absolutely do it no matter what.


Even if it’s in the police force, in the military, what I meant more was, is that there shouldn’t, there’s jobs out there that we shouldn’t, um, lower the bar so that women can get in. Absolutely. If a woman wants to be a police officer and she can pass the test, she should be in there, but not at the cost of jeopardizing the public. Same with the firefighter, same with a, um, uh, uh, a police officer. Just in the same way that I, I don’t, I think it jeopardizes the public if a man puts on a fake tip, pair of tits and tries to breastfeed a baby. Like, I think that that’s not, that’s, men shouldn’t be doing that either. So I just, I just wanna tell you that if it came across that I was saying that I don’t think women should be cops, I, it was outta context and it was too strong. W w but for another show. But, but I’ve been thinking about you. Okay. Sorry. I know this is your show, uh, miss, uh,

Rebecca Fuselier (08:38):

It’s your show. Savan Fu

Sevan Matossian (08:39):

Fus. How Enjoy it. Fus. Thank you.

Rebecca Fuselier (08:42):


Sevan Matossian (08:43):

Fuss. What, what is the problem? How fu fu


I just put F u s e l e Fu here’s the part. Um, going back, Rebecca, uh, do you fancy a bowl of cereal? Hold on. Don’t answer that yet. It’s, it’s, it’s one short sentence that it seems unfair to ask because it’s such a surmount. It’s, it’s such an insurmountable task. Like, oh, are you going back to the games? It’s like, oh, are you gonna climb Everest? Well, I’m gonna try, but only three out of a hundred people who attempt it make it. And it’s like, I, I almost feel bad that when, um, people ask you that question, or when I ask someone that question, do you plan on going back to the games? Because the question’s so easy to ask, but the task is so monumental, right? I mean, it’s just, yeah.

Rebecca Fuselier (09:33):

Yeah. It, it, it, it really is. It, it’s hard. It’s hard, uh, when you spend the hours that us athletes do in the gym and go through the training that, that we do to just like you, you would not be the that level competitor if you weren’t like, on the edge of your seat and like realizing that there’s a big chance that you don’t make it. Right. And, and it, people, like people are always, and especially with my page being it, like I try to keep it so positive and everything, and everybody’s like, it’s, it’s so almost backwards. Like, you wanna be that optimistic, but you also wanna stay in reality of, Hey, there’s a very small number of athletes that that can do, can do this. And it just, for, for me, that’s motivating. For me, that’s motivating because I wanna be in that small pack

Sevan Matossian (10:32):

For, for you to go to the CrossFit games would for, would be for me to be like, get Tucker Carlson on or Don Lemon on, uh, today, and ask him, Hey, I heard you got fi those are news anchors. And ask him, Hey, I heard you got fired yesterday. It, it, it would be, or if I got like, um, I don’t know, uh, the rock on my show. Mm-hmm. Like, I, I, I don’t, I don’t even, I, you know what I mean? I, that’s how, I mean, that’s, that, that’s the level. I have another 10 years of interviewing before I’m gonna find someone some way of getting the rock on.

Rebecca Fuselier (10:59):

That’s why it’s

Sevan Matossian (11:00):

Just work to put in

Rebecca Fuselier (11:01):

LA Last year, last year, I told people, I was like, here, here’s where I look at year by year. And, um, I hate, I think people are starting to really understand that. Like, if you look at social media, like that’s a very small per, like, small thing of, of what I do. And people don’t realize how like methodical Matt and I are with my, my training and how serious I, I am about my training and everything. But last year, the window for me, or the percentage of me making it to the games, like that window started to open up a little bit. And I knew if I went in and executed everything perfectly, we’d be in. Now going into this year, my job and what I think we’ve done is made that crack a little bit bigger. Of what? Of how, how I’m gonna, if I can get to the games just by getting a little bit stronger and more fit.

Sevan Matossian (11:58):

What, what place did you end up taking at the games

Rebecca Fuselier (12:02):

30th? I, my goal was to make that cut line.

Sevan Matossian (12:05):

And, and you made it? And I was,

Rebecca Fuselier (12:07):


Sevan Matossian (12:07):

Wow. Crazy. Congratulations.

Rebecca Fuselier (12:09):

And hung on by a, a thread.

Sevan Matossian (12:11):

And, and, and you took 30th. 30th with also having a last place finish in the capital workout. Yeah.

Rebecca Fuselier (12:17):


Sevan Matossian (12:17):

Crazy. Okay. Here, fi uh, Phillip, uh, I’m gonna guess the answer is yes. Uh, Rebecca, is that literal, do you fancy a bowl of cereal? Yeah. Like, would you like to sit down with, do you have a bowl and a spoon and, and milk and a box. Mm-hmm. <affirmative> and the stuff falls out and you’re like, Hmm mm-hmm.

Rebecca Fuselier (12:33):

<affirmative>. Mm-hmm. <affirmative> the carbs. I, I’m, my, my job is to eat right now.

Sevan Matossian (12:38):

Yeah. That’s crazy. How much do you weigh?

Rebecca Fuselier (12:41):

I have gained three pounds since last year. Woo. 1 28. 1 28.

Sevan Matossian (12:48):

And, uh, at, at any, at any price, like, um, has it affected your gymnastics or at any cost? No.

Rebecca Fuselier (12:55):

No. I So

Sevan Matossian (12:56):

You’ve allocated, you’ve distributed and allocated it nicely all over the physi? Yes.

Rebecca Fuselier (13:00):

Yes. Okay. I hope, I hope some of it has gone to my arms. Honestly. I look at pictures from last year and I got like these little noodle arms, but, um, no, I think I would have to go n nuts sos on unhealthy foods to be able to gain weight to where it affects like my huge gym gymnastics background. And I don’t think if I, if I’m, the way that I’m eating, if I always eat clean and everything, I’m, I’m going to, I just need to eat more of that. I’m definitely gonna put on weight, but it’s gonna be good weight. That’s muscle. That’s only gonna make my gymnastics stronger. I’d have to go so crazy to make it affect like the, my pulling on a rope climb or my pulling on on pull-ups or anything like to be a, to move that weight around.

Sevan Matossian (13:47):

There’s this, um, uh, phenomenon that I heard that I can’t even understand that for, for you guys, you people, you know, you’re kind, um, that you have muscular fatigue before, cardiovascular fatigue when you do burpees.

Rebecca Fuselier (14:07):

Um, is

Sevan Matossian (14:07):

That, is that true with you?

Rebecca Fuselier (14:09):

Y I’ve kind of broke through on that stage in the past, like coup a year and a half I feel like, and that’s weird that you bring that up because it was a thought very recently.

Sevan Matossian (14:19):

I’m very weird and I appreciate you, uh, noticing that. Thank you. Couple

Rebecca Fuselier (14:23):

Weirdos. Um, but I was thinking about it on running the other day and I’ve been upping my running volume and where I

Sevan Matossian (14:30):

Use that’s like that with running too, with you. You’ll get muscular fatigue and running before you get cardiovascular fatigue

Rebecca Fuselier (14:36):

Depend depending on what it is. But I’ll say my hamstrings will burn up before my lungs start to breathe too hard. And I, that used to be reversed.

Sevan Matossian (14:46):

This is so bizarre.

Rebecca Fuselier (14:47):

Yeah. It used to be reversed. Like, and, and I think a lot of people have gotten really smart, and I don’t know if you’ve done, I’ve recently, this past season, Matt and I have, as have jumped into the, um, the bucket of training zone two a little bit more and experimenting with that.

Sevan Matossian (15:06):

What does that mean? Zone two? Like just somewhere you keep your heartbeat,

Rebecca Fuselier (15:09):

Which it’s all, yeah, it’s all

Sevan Matossian (15:10):

Heart rate. A little less than as hard as you can go. Mm-hmm. <affirmative> one is like, you’re going balls to the wall, and two is a little less than that. I,

Rebecca Fuselier (15:16):

I do not like training zone two. Okay. Because I like, because I like CrossFit. I like the feeling of feeling like you’re di you’re dying on the floor, and we just never get in that heart rate zone. And if you think about something like the capital, and that was something that’s a, that’s a, um, category that we don’t hit a lot in the early season of being like 30 and 40 minute workouts. And when we get to semi-finals, I’m thinking we’re gonna have, I I’m thinking we’re gonna have a longer piece for sure. We haven’t had that many long pieces through the open. You can’t really program that much because people can’t do like 40 minute videos on their, on their phones and everything. Or you can’t do a 40 minute open workout. So it’s just a whole nother domain that you just gotta kind of stretch into. But recently, I, I’ll say that to a lot of people, like depending on the workout, obviously, but I’ll be running and I’m like, I feel like I don’t start breathing hard until I start feeling like, oh, shoot, my, my legs are burning, my legs are getting heavy. My, like, I can feel my hamstrings and my calves working. So it’s interesting.

Sevan Matossian (16:21):

So along that same line, when you say it’s your job to eat, is it really like that? Like you have to force yourself to eat? Because that’s another thing I can’t imagine. I can’t, like for me, my whole day is, is like this, don’t eat that. Don’t eat, don’t eat that. Don’t eat that

Rebecca Fuselier (16:41):

For Yes. For, I mean, any of us athletes, were eating like, so, so much because you’re doing these high intensity workouts multiple throughout the day. And we know that the magic of these high intensity workouts is you continuously burn calories throughout the day. Now, for me, and especially when we get into the summer, a lot of people don’t know like, how much I was working and up on my feet training and coaching, like even up to leading towards the games that I literally have to plan out eating windows or I’ll, I won’t eat. I’ll be too busy, I’ll be I’ll, um, be caught, caught up doing something. So I have to plan out my eating windows. But yes, my whole family laughs at me because training’s the easy part for me going home and eating like my full plate of food. Yeah. That’s challenging.

Sevan Matossian (17:30):

Do you think you can be an athlete and have a, um, so there’s, I’m there’s words out there, like a eating disorder or, um, bad relationship with food. Do, do you think there’s some level of relationship between all athletes and food that is, I I don’t even know. I don’t, I don’t know what the word is. That’s, well, let me, let me go ahead. Were you gonna say something that it,

Rebecca Fuselier (17:57):

That, that it’s just poor? Like No, no.

Sevan Matossian (17:59):

Not, not even that. It’s unhealthy. I don’t wanna categorize, let me, let me start here. At some point when you’re done competing at CrossFit, you’re ha you’re gonna have to lower the, your food consumption mm-hmm. <affirmative>, right? Um, will that be easy? Would you look forward to that? Or is that something, or will it be fucked up? Or like, basically every time I hear like an athlete be like, yeah, I got an eating disorder, I’m like, well, of course you do. Like, I, I can’t imagine any athlete not having an eating disorder. I just don’t think that that’s the right word. Some significantly high intense relationship I with the consumption of fuel. Right.

Rebecca Fuselier (18:36):

I agree with you. I think there, there’s, there’s definitely parts that are, that are, uh, deeper than just the food. And I, I’ve tried to put myself in. What do you

Sevan Matossian (18:45):

Mean? Like how you look in your clothes? Like the paranoia of how you look in your clothes? Yeah.

Rebecca Fuselier (18:48):

Yeah. It’s, it’s, it’s, it’s more or less, all of that stems from insecurities, right? You wanna l look a specific way. The bottom line is, is you have to work in some way to, to, to create the, the body that, that you want. And I think a lot of people get caught up in actually getting overwhelmed with the, the work side of it. And it, it’s a, it’s a really, it’s a really touchy subject because I mean, it, it’s, it’s literally like, like a, a true relationship with another person is your, your relationship with food and everybody grows up a different way in different households and you’re constantly having to adjust and adapt, but you don’t wanna know what the scary part of food is that I always tell people, especially when work with people at, over here at, at nu Nutri for nutrition is there’s no escaping it. It’s lifelong. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (19:45):

Yeah. Yeah. And a lot in a, like if you’re a drug addict, you can get away from Coke. You ain’t getting away from food. You

Rebecca Fuselier (19:49):

Have to eat. Right. And the hard part is, is I feel like people get, they, they, they have it flipped. They can flip their mindset a different way that this is lifelong. It’s not like, it’s not always gonna be a constant struggle. It can be if you choose to make it that way, but you can also make it this lifelong adventure of I’m gonna try this. It didn’t work, screw that. I’ll go try something else. And you have all of these opportunities to go and fix that. Where people, I think where people get overwhelmed is just the work side of it. You have to try different things and then guess what? When you get old, your body’s gonna change and you’re gonna have to figure it out all over again.

Sevan Matossian (20:31):

Yeah. I, I guess, um, you have to put the effort to, to, to tinker and experiment, but then you, and you, then you have to have the discipline to follow through.

Rebecca Fuselier (20:39):

Right. And that it’s challenging. It’s challenging.

Sevan Matossian (20:43):

Uh, Tyler, uh, mazes and then there’s questions on here. Thanks Tyler for the loo, uh, shit, didn’t attach a message. Oh, then you don’t get a question. No. Uh, could she speak on her instructional videos? We were trying to do something similar at my affiliate and would love some general perspective. Okay. I had a question about those two. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, um, let me start with this. Um, thanks Tyler. W um, are those, did you make, were you like, shit, I gotta think of a way to make money, so I’m gonna make these? Or were you like, fuck, this is something I really wanna share. This is kind of cool how I figured out how to handstand walk. I’m gonna, I’m gonna share this.

Rebecca Fuselier (21:17):

Uh, no, I, I wanted to do those because I love to coach and it’s a way I can reach a broader You

Sevan Matossian (21:22):

Do love to coach, huh? Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. I just was looking at your, uh, rowing coaching video. I’m like, this girl loves what she’s doing. Mm-hmm.

Rebecca Fuselier (21:30):

<affirmative>. Yeah. So it’s a way for me to, um, one, expand my hour of coaching in the gym and, and touch more of the athletes here that wanna dig deeper into their training without having to, like, I, I have to be very smart with my time. And nowadays I’m just like, when, like, I’m, I work with my athletes really in depth in class, but it’s literally my schedule goes from right when I finish class, I’m gonna take like a five minute break and then I’m onto my next workout, like, training. So I’ll work with people a little bit in, in, or, or as much as I can in class, in depth, chat with them for a few seconds wi right after class or if they have any questions, I’m like, Hey, if you really want this skill, I have a a video series. I need you to go watch it come back to me with any questions. But we gotta, like, there’s a lot of reps like online, a lot of coaching tips online that I’ve made just for you guys and anyone who, who wants to dig deeper into who guys asked.

Sevan Matossian (22:36):

So, so basically it was a coaching tool. Whose idea was it to just put it online so people can buy it in a cart who don’t go to your gym?

Rebecca Fuselier (22:44):

Uh, I recently did this, um, on, on my website is just, I had PDF programs already written out and I was like, you know what? This is me trying to be a better business woman too, because this is my living and I am trying to, to make something off of this with without letting it, letting it taint like my love for, um, doing all of this. But I mean, basically that PDF is just like the, it’s super cheap. And then the, the time that it takes to put together, I just throw it up on the website and be like, Hey, people have asked how to support my page in my channel. So I keep making those videos. I’m like, guys, as long as I, I love to do it, I’m gonna keep doing it. But if you wanna support it, like go get you something out of it, go get the pdf. Like follow the PDF makes it even better.

Sevan Matossian (23:30):

Yeah. That’s cool. And and are people doing that?

Rebecca Fuselier (23:33):
