I recently had the opportunity to speak with a handsome and hardworking CEO and athlete Lance A. Parker.

Lance A. Parker is the CEO and Founder of Parker Peak Performance, retired soccer pro, director of nutrition for Performix and Founding Trainer for Get The Mirror. Parker inspires me professionally, because of his work ethics and how he has branded himself. I am inspired by Parker’s physique, style, passion and how he has reinvented himself.
I asked Parker, what is his life’s mission.
“To figure out my life’s mission, haha,” said Parker.
I asked Parker if his mantra was a hashtag, what would it be and why?
“I have different mantras that I’ll use depending on the day or time of my life, but the one I like is #betterthanyesterday. I’m always continuously trying to improve myself in all aspects of my life,” said Parker.
I asked Parker what was his most memorable year?
“I can’t say that one specifically stands out, but my most memorable years have often been transition years from either living in one location and moving to another, changing soccer teams, transitioning to new professions, Etc,” said Parker.
I asked Parker about his underwear preferences.
“I prefer trunks, my favorite brand is Calvin Klein, and my favorite color is black,” said Parker.
I have always been inspired by Parker’s style, so I asked him how he picked out his wardrobe.
“I’m a minimalist so I have to be very careful with what I choose to fill up my wardrobe with. I gravitate towards solid, neutral, colors that can all be mixed and matched together well to give me a large option of outfits with minimal clothing pieces,” said Parker.
I asked Parker, what does he enjoy most about being CEO of Parker Peak Performance.
“Being able to schedule my week. While playing soccer, I never had control of what my days, weeks, and years would look like, so having that freedom now is very nice to have,” said Parker.
I asked Parker, what is one sentence would he like people to use to describe Parker Peak Performance.
“A place that high-performance individuals turn to when wanting to upgrade their health and unlock their full potential,” said Parker.
I asked Parker if he could host a podcast on any topic, what would it be about and who would be your first guest?
“I think it would be interesting to interview Neil deGrasse Tyson and just let him talk about whatever is on his mind. He’s an extremely intelligent and interesting human that I enjoy listening to and learning from,” said Parker.
I asked Parker, what is his favorite inspirational quote?
“Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard, by Tim Notke,” said Lance Parker.
In my extra content segment, I ask Lance Parker if he could go rock climbing with anyone died or alive, who would it be? Follow me on Facebook and Instagram @mrjoshsidney to find out.
