[MUSIC PLAYING] Hey, everybody. Welcome again to a different episode of Life Time Talks. I’m Jamie Martin.

And I’m David Freeman.

And we’re actually excited in the present day for our dialog with Ben Johns. He’s an American skilled pickleball participant, ranked primary on the earth for doubles, combined doubles, and singles, by the Professional Pickleball Affiliation, in addition to by the World Pickleball Rankings and International Pickleball Rankings. He first began taking part in pickleball again in 2016 on the age of 17 and he quickly after began competing. He’s since received now greater than 50 gold medals thus far in his skilled profession, 11 of that are triple crowns. Ben, thanks a lot for being right here with us.

Thanks guys for having me. Wanting ahead to it.

Yeah, Ben. So we’re tremendous excited to have you ever on our LT Talks and likewise, to be featured on our upcoming problem of Expertise Life. So thanks once more a lot for approaching. How are you doing in the present day?

I’ve by no means been higher. Really in the present day is launch day for me for switching main sponsors. So it’s been a really busy morning and we’re simply going full steam forward I suppose proper on to this.

I adore it. I adore it. So Jamie gave us just a little little bit of the background. So let’s set that stage proper now. Take us again to your teenage years while you found pickleball. When and the place did you uncover the game, and what about it appealed to you.

Yeah, I found it close to Naples, Florida, Southwest Florida. And I used to be a tennis and desk tennis participant. And the tennis courts I skilled out with my brother on the time had been proper subsequent to pickleball courts that had been lately constructed. And I walked by a few occasions, I noticed it performed. It regarded like enjoyable however I didn’t even know what it was or I didn’t know sufficient about it to be like oh, I wish to go play that.

However I noticed it sufficient occasions the place finally I used to be similar to, I’ll give this sport a strive. Why not? It looks as if I can have enjoyable with it a few occasions. Play with some associates perhaps. And so I went out the primary time and I used to be like, this sport is absolutely enjoyable. Like simply instantly. It was tremendous attention-grabbing to me that it was like a mix of tennis and desk tennis, proper in between the 2, my two main background sports activities.

And what attracted the game to me initially was that mixture between the 2 I’m aware of. And likewise simply the brand new technique. Like I’m all the time very enthusiastic about figuring a brand new sport or sport out. And it was very clear, very early that I used to be good by way of eye hand coordination and motion from tennis and all that, however I didn’t know what to do. I had no concept what I used to be doing on the courtroom.

So figuring that out was an immediate attraction to me. And it simply appeared like the entire neighborhood and everybody I performed with was so welcoming they usually had been all so enjoyable and good. It’s only a very participating world as anybody who performs quickly finds out.

Completely. So inform us just a little bit about that transition from when this turned a only for enjoyable for you sport, while you determined to essentially pursue it, and finally to go professional with it.

Yeah, no, there’s undoubtedly a pair key moments. It’s additionally fairly gradual although. It seeped into my life and, one second I used to be like, it’s a enjoyable sport. After which by some means a few years later I’m similar to gosh, I don’t even assume I’m going to make use of my diploma. So it was very attention-grabbing the way it simply received into my life. Similar to most individuals they assume they’re simply doing a interest after which abruptly it’s their full on dependancy.

However for me, my first event ever I simply occurred to stay very near the primary US Open ever in 2016, it was like half an hour away. In order that was my first event. Folks had been like oh, you’re fairly good. It is best to play. It’ll be a historic expertise for everyone going, so I used to be like I’ll play, certain why not. I didn’t know the way good I used to be so I used to be similar to, I’m going to join professional. Let me play professional only for the enjoyable of it.

And if I lose actually badly that’s superb, I’ll nonetheless have the ability to say I did it. And I ended up getting fifth in that, so I used to be like I suppose I’m fairly good at this sport. And it made me wish to preserve taking part in. However as a result of I went again to Maryland later that 12 months away from Florida the place there’s not a variety of pickleball, I didn’t get to play lots. I performed two extra tournaments that entire 12 months. And it was nonetheless enjoyable to me. Didn’t actually care that a lot, it was only a interest.

After which coming again in 2017, again to Florida once more, I used to be taking part in like daily. I actually needed to do effectively and I loved it lots, however nonetheless wasn’t considering of it critically as like knowledgeable sport or something like that. However ended up being that I got here again one 12 months later and I received the 2017 US Open. In order that was one of many key moments the place I used to be similar to, I suppose I’m fairly good at this sport and perhaps I ought to preserve taking part in as a result of it’s a variety of enjoyable.

And I did it for the remainder of the 12 months. After which that fall I went to the College of Maryland as a freshman however I knew I needed to maintain taking part in concurrently. And I’d say the opposite key second for me that turned it into hey, this may very well be a profession for me slightly than simply on the aspect simultaneous factor, is once I signed with Franklin Sports activities in 2019. They had been the primary model to get into pickleball and sponsoring athletes that wasn’t a pickleball model. They had been an exterior model, they had been in MLD, NHL.

In order that they needed to sponsor me, and on the time that was revolutionary for the game and for me. So I used to be similar to, if that is occurring who is aware of what’ll occur within the subsequent couple of years. And this may very well be a really viable skilled profession. And it appeared like a variety of enjoyable to me nonetheless, so I used to be like, why not?

Like it. Breaking down partitions, proper? I really like that. So we take a minute to really discuss in regards to the sport of pickleball itself. It’s one of many quickest rising sports activities in America. And the adoption charge is wild. So a variety of occasions individuals may put it in a field of claiming there’s a sure age group that this caters to, however because it has such a excessive adoption charge, are you able to inform us, who’s pickleball for?

Yeah, no, completely. That’s an ideal query actually. And that’s that the actual attraction to it’s not that it’s a sport for previous individuals, it simply occurred that I used to be in a microcosm that very a lot loved it. The actually cool factor about it that I discover that’s the reason it applies to all individuals as effectively is as a result of it’s a sport for completely anyone and everyone. I’ve seen five-year-olds play and revel in it, I’ve seen 90-year-olds play and revel in it. Guys, ladies, it’s a reasonably even distribution there. Socioeconomic standing, tradition.

It simply doesn’t matter. I’ve seen everyone and anyone play with one another. And as quickly as you get on that courtroom you’re one and the identical. You’re introduced collectively by the game you want taking part in. That’s additionally why I feel it’s a giant factor with celebrities. Like you have got Leonardo DiCaprio taking part in, he’s received a courtroom at his home. So many different celebrities that I simply really feel prefer it’s so enticing since you won’t have the ability to duke it out on the tv set or directing or producing, however while you get on the pickleball courtroom it’s like oh, it’s sport time. We wish to compete on this.

So it may be aggressive, it may be enjoyable, and it may be for completely anyone. And I really feel like that’s why I’ve met extra distinctive and attention-grabbing individuals in pickleball than I’ve in another side of my life. There’s simply so many distinctive individuals, as a result of anyone performs it. So for those who ever assume that sport’s not for you, I imply I encourage to vary. I feel for those who don’t like sports activities, pickleball could be only one you’ll.

Effectively, that’s one thing we preserve listening to. And simply in full disclosure clearly, we’re with Lifetime, that is the Lifetime Talks podcast that’s a spotlight for our group proper now. And we preserve listening to that simply the people who find themselves getting concerned within the development of it inside our group. So I do know Ben, you’ve performed up right here in Lakeville, Minnesota the place I’m at, and competed in tournaments. I imply the explosion of tournaments and seeing who’s doing this. I imply, I’m simply amazed each time I see photographs on our stream about who’s all on the market. It actually is for everybody.

It’s wild. Not solely is it for everyone, however most individuals that play, it’s like an dependancy. They get fanatical about it they usually don’t wish to cease taking part in. And that’s simply so superior to see. As a result of it’s just like the healthiest dependancy I’ve ever seen. Persons are getting train, they’re having fun with one thing, they do it with different individuals. There’s simply nothing unhealthy about it. I imply it may well even be therapeutic. The variety of folks that have had accidents in different sports activities and get to play pickleball as like a revamping their physique, after which they by no means depart it it’s simply loopy. It’s simply good for actually each state of affairs I’ve ever seen.

That’s superior. OK. So we wish to discuss just a little bit too about, you have got in six years because you picked it up for enjoyable and now you’ve grown into being the primary participant, you’ve received these triple crowns, you’re a primary participant in these varied completely different divisions, what makes you a extremely good pickleball participant. Like why is that this the game for you.

Yeah. I’d say I imply it’s undoubtedly a mix of issues. The primary I’d should credit score is certainly the background sports activities. So presently virtually all the highest rating gamers are former tennis gamers, often D1 or higher, some former skilled ATP, WTA, that type of factor. And I wasn’t that degree, my brother was, he was an ATP participant. However I used to be a reasonably good tennis participant however I used to be additionally a reasonably good desk tennis participant. So I really feel like that mixture actually provides a variety of issues as a result of anyone can see trying on the courtroom that there’s similarities to each.

So having each background sports activities definitely helps. However I’d say the extra key factor, greater than anything most likely, is that pickleball is what I name an unsolved sport. Like everybody’s nonetheless very a lot determining what are the nice issues to do. Like how do you play the game at its optimum? And no one’s actually figured that out. It’s presently growing simply 12 months to 12 months. You see completely different methods gamers choosing up various things and we’re all studying from one another.

And one of many issues I’ve all the time mentioned primarily based on not simply pickleball however in any space actually, is simply experiment and study issues primarily based on making an attempt new issues. So I suppose I preserve including new issues and getting higher principally due to that.

Yeah you mentioned one thing earlier that’s an oxymoron so far as wholesome addictions so I’m all the time curious, being a excessive efficiency athlete, we do commit a variety of our time and vitality to what it’s that we’re keen about inside our craft. So I’ve to ask the query and I’m guaranteeing our viewers and our listeners wish to know this reply, how do you discover the stability to have the ability to loosen up and unwind and likewise find time for different issues which are essential in life too.

Yeah, that’s an attention-grabbing query. I really feel prefer it’s one I’m nonetheless engaged on. I can’t discover a good stability but, perhaps I by no means will. But it surely’s actually all in what makes you content. I get happiness out of striving for one thing, doing one of the best I can out of it. And I feel to be one of the best at one thing like this it’s not 100% work laborious on a regular basis. I operate at full 100% capability and efficiency if I do dedicate a while to different issues.

And for me that’s not essentially similar to leisure, however I’ve a pair companies that I run. And to be like doing stuff like that may even be simply altering my thoughts from one mindset to the opposite is enjoyable. Doing a exercise though it looks as if work and perhaps it’s for pickleball, that may be enjoyable to me. Like individuals have hobbies that aren’t particularly for leisure or happiness however by some means they do make you content anyway simply because they’re completely different.

So for me I’d say selection is huge and as soon as once more, experimenting with completely different routines and various kinds of time administration and that type of factor helps me to determine what makes me joyful and nonetheless is ready to get me to carry out at my prime and greatest.

So that you’ve talked about this now, you have got these two companies that you simply’re targeted on, you’re additionally ending your diploma in engineering, and I had seen the replace in the present day about your new sponsorships and all of this and your plans going ahead. So like with all these issues in thoughts ending up your diploma, these different companies, inform us just a little bit about these endeavors and what’s subsequent for you with these.

Certain, yeah. So getting my diploma has all the time been crucial to me. I do know at this level that once I graduate I’m not going to be utilizing it immediately. However actually even earlier than pickleball I by no means thought I used to be going to be a 9:00 to five:00 individual. I all the time needed to run my very own enterprise and apply the issues I discovered personally slightly than for any person else. In order that’s not stunning to me that I’m doing this now, it’s simply humorous that pickleball performed such a big position in it.

So, yeah, I’ll get my Supplies Engineering diploma and I hope to make use of that down the highway, however perhaps it’s with paddles, perhaps it’s with one thing else. However I’m certain I’ll apply it by some means. Wanting ahead to graduating, it’s been a protracted highway. After which different corporations, principally these they’re doing effectively and I actually like working them. I don’t know in the event that they’ll turn out to be like a main enterprise for me or something, however they’re definitely enjoyable to run concurrently with the skilled pickleball profession. However the skilled aspect, the efficiency and staying at tip prime efficiency form goes to be my main focus to any extent further mainly till that modifications.

Ben, once I hear you discuss it simply clearly stands out. Ben Johns is a person with a plan.

[LAUGHTER]

It goes again to love early influences. And I’m curious, we’re curious so far as just like the position fashions and the teachings that you simply study from these people and the way that affect has carried over to who you’re in the present day. So are you able to share just a little bit about that background of Ben Johns the person that you’re in the present day and proceed to evolve to turn out to be. What set the muse for you?

Yeah. Clearly I suppose it’s a cliche, lots of people say it however you must credit score dad and mom first. My dad and mom are each wonderful individuals. They gave me so many alternatives in each method. They’ve inspired me by faculty, by pickleball, by any sports activities, by no sports activities. No matter I needed to do they’ve all the time been there and like hey, no matter you need, no matter you want, we’re right here for you.

And I feel they’re to credit score for independence and eager to be good at something actually. I’m undoubtedly the place I’m in the present day due to them. And undoubtedly my older brother. He was my greatest position mannequin by way of working laborious and being good at one thing. He’s six years older so I noticed him grind at skilled tennis and he beloved it a lot, did such a great job simply working laborious at it. He can be my perfect position mannequin as a sportsman.

And now I’m simply fortunate I get to be on the identical aspect of the courtroom with him. So we by no means had a chance to play tennis collectively as a result of six years older that’s an excessive amount of while you’re youthful. However at pickleball now that we’re each 22, 28 or 23, 29 now, we get to be on the identical aspect of the courtroom and that’s simply I couldn’t ask for a extra lucky sport. I’m simply fortunate to have discovered it.

So I’m simply going to pause right here for a second as a result of I wish to discuss while you’ve devoted a lot of your time to this athletic pursuit clearly with balancing with different issues, have there ever been occasions while you felt prefer it wasn’t value it or like this isn’t fairly the proper factor for me. Or is it simply while you discovered it. What’s that been for you? Have there been any mindset shifts you needed to make.

Sure and no. I don’t assume there’s ever been a time the place I’ve been like that is an excessive amount of I don’t need this or something like that, nothing that excessive. However there’s all the time some moments of just a little little bit of doubt like perhaps I’m doing an excessive amount of, I really feel overloaded proper now whether or not that’s stress from varied issues or no matter. Like what we had been speaking about earlier than, how do you stability your life, how do you be sure you’re nonetheless joyful.

You’re all the time questioning that like is that this what’s making me happiest. What ought to I be doing with my life mainly. And there have undoubtedly been occasions the place particularly like are you doing this proper? Possibly you must in the reduction of on this or this or add this and all that. However that’s so far as the questioning goes. Actually in pickleball I’ve all the time been assured as a result of it’s simply such a cool atmosphere. Simply the assembly individuals alone like I really feel like if I wasn’t within the place I’m being on the prime of the game, I might nonetheless love the game and wish to play simply as effectively.

Ben, I adore it. I’m getting excited, I’m getting an vitality simply listening to you discuss. So once we discuss now let’s go to the following degree so far as id. It looks as if you have got a transparent understanding so far as who you’re. After which once we tie that into function, like a powerful sense of function of what it’s that try to be doing and also you’re executing on that. So once we converse of function and what it’s that you simply’re doing in life, inform me while you hear the phrase function what involves thoughts for you.

Function, I’d say undoubtedly, function to me may be very particular. It’s received to be relevant to very particular issues. So my function in pickleball goes to be very completely different from what I feel my function is outdoors of pickleball. So for me in pickleball, as an illustration, I imply I might like to be on the prime, like I feel it’s my accountability to myself and to pickleball to be nearly as good as I presumably can for so long as I can.

I feel there’s nothing extra invaluable than that, to advance the game by way of followers, different gamers, getting youthful gamers into it. That’s how I’ve all the time checked out athletes usually. Anytime I discover an athlete inspiring it was typically as a result of they had been one of the best or they labored more durable than anyone or that they had an inspiring story, one thing like that. So I don’t assume I can do something. My function in pickleball is to be one of the best that I can and work laborious daily to be that for everyone else. And that’s what everybody expects, that’s what they wish to see, in order that’s what I’m going to do. That may be my function inside pickleball at the least.

Let’s preserve tagging on a few of these like larger philosophical kind questions right here.

I adore it. [LAUGHS]

Yeah. So what offers you perspective. In different phrases, like what are the values or core beliefs that floor you within the daily. As a result of it’s most likely fairly straightforward with all you have got happening to get like I’ve received this and that. However what brings you again to love who you’re and just like the true you, the genuine you.

Yeah, no. You’re very proper about that. Whenever you get so busy with stuff and so wrapped up in a world it’s really easy to overlook about different stuff. Like I’ll go a pair days at a time the place I’m solely invested in a few issues and I’m simply that every now and then take a step again and take a deep breath and say, wow, you might want to do that extra usually. That is good for you. You possibly can’t be so wrapped up in every part you’re doing.

And I really feel like that occurs to lots of people in life the place it’s not even about being prime in sports activities or something like that, it simply occurs to everyone. And I’d say it’s most likely comparable for everyone that while you step again, I feel it’s all the time, to me, it’s most essential to simply be thankful for the belongings you do have, that’s what offers me probably the most perspective. I’m very lucky in what I’m doing now. And I’m lucky outdoors of this sport for therefore many causes.

So desirous about these issues. Household, circumstances, associates, no matter it’s that you simply’re grateful for. That’s what offers me perspective. It’s like even when I didn’t have no matter I’ve, there’s a complete lot extra that I’ve to be thankful for.

One phrase, three phrases, well being and wellness. What does it imply to you?

Well being and wellness. Good. Well being and wellness to me I’d say it’s way of life. It comes right down to way of life. Folks can do it any variety of alternative ways. To me it comes again to the game, coaching, efficiency, restoration, not being injured, all these issues. However to different individuals it’d simply imply doing an exercise as soon as a day. It’s going to the gymnasium, it’s taking part in pickleball. It’s no matter.

It may very well be psychological well being and wellness. For those who’re joyful or not. It might probably imply so many various issues to so many various individuals. To me it comes right down to that every particular person individual’s perception in are you wholesome, are you content, or are you doing stuff daily that will get you in that state.

Superior. So one factor I wish to throw on the market for you and I don’t have this on the listing of questions that we all the time prep forward of time, is–

Great.

You’re considered one of our youthful cowl fashions who’s going to be, I known as you a canopy mannequin. Cowl topic, cowl characteristic,

[LAUGHTER]

Nonetheless you wish to take it.

Cowl mannequin let’s go.

Sure, you’re prepared.

I’m a mannequin, simply what I all the time needed.

Your cowl shot right here. One factor, while you look out whether or not it’s 5, 10, 15 years, what do you hope for the game of pickleball and likewise only for your self usually. Since you’re considered one of our youthful individuals. Like oftentimes we’re doing extra reflection however I wish to look ahead right here.

Yeah, no, that’s a implausible query. Glad you requested that one. So for pickleball, it’s so laborious to foretell. As a result of simply in like three years it’s come such a good distance. I’m excited for no matter it has to carry and I really feel like all prediction I make might be going to be incorrect. However how I see it in my utopia for pickleball is that it’s going to be a sport that everyone has heard of on the earth. That just about everyone desires to play for no matter cause.

As a result of like again to what I used to be saying earlier than, greater than another sport perhaps everyone watches the NFL or everyone watches soccer et cetera, however not everyone performs. And pickleball doesn’t should be a spectator sport for everyone however I feel it has the potential greater than another sport I’ve ever seen to be a sport that nearly everybody can play and revel in. As a result of it simply turns transverses no matter it’s you do, no matter it’s you’re into. You’re all going to have enjoyable, you’re all going to take pleasure in taking part in it, and that makes it additionally a really social sport.

So it’s simply one thing everybody can relate to. So I may see it in 10, 15 years being the game to play it doesn’t matter what you do. That’s the place I’d wish to see it. And I feel simply that precept alone spreads by any variety of issues that anybody else is like, that is the way forward for pickleball. It’s like effectively if everybody performs it, the longer term, it may very well be something. So that will be the massive factor for pickleball for me.

For myself, 10 to fifteen years, I don’t actually take into consideration the longer term that a lot. I simply really feel like while you’re on a great path and simply doing great things daily that makes you content and all that stuff, then you definitely’re most likely going to be simply superb and simply joyful in 10 to fifteen years as effectively. So I’m not going to make any predictions. I simply hope I’m nonetheless having fun with daily like I’m now and possibly doing a little new and completely different stuff, I actually love selection. So I don’t count on to be doing the very same factor as I’m lately. I’d count on to be doing any variety of various things. So once more, actually laborious to foretell. Possibly as unpredictable as pickleball however I’m trying ahead to something that it holds.

David, another questions past your two minute drill that’s developing right here. Anything for Ben?

Nothing involves thoughts Huge Ben, I don’t know in case you have anything earlier than I put you on this pickle.

[LAUGHS]

I do know, I’m in a pickle. I’ve a query for you, David. I imply how a lot pickleball have you ever performed? Have you ever been on the courtroom? I wish to know just a little bit about you guys.

Coach Lowell Lindsay Ogden known as me out one night and I discovered all in regards to the kitchen, I discovered all about easy methods to serve, and all these various things. And I completely–

Did you keep out of kitchen?

And ever since then, introduced my youngsters out since we received again to Texas, my spouse, associates, of us, from Alpha that I’ve coached. So I completely adore it. I can see how addicting it may be, and the way enjoyable it may be, and simply getting out and transferring. I really like that piece of it, simply being within the well being and health business. So sure, I’ve performed it. I’m an enormous fan. And I additionally performed ping pong too so for those who ever wish to get on some desk tennis with me,
