To some, he’s known as that kid who ran a race down the slopes of Mt Everest... but most of the time he gets called "crazy" more times than his name. All for the right reasons though.
As a firm believer of pushing the boundaries of what the human body & mind is capable of, Tofe Evans is constantly reinventing himself to advocate how anyone can rise above and be the best versions of themselves. The journey Tofe has been in these past few years have not only shaped his character but his endurance career saved his life.
Where Tofe has lived through a raw experience and been an advocate on resilience testing in practical settings every day, he's attained evidence from the professionals to confirm the analytical and data side of things.
Tofe is that war general covered with invisible calluses and scars who will guide you out of the trenches of life and rescue you from the “The Troughs of Sorrow.” He's deliberately putting himself into stressful situations every day to really understand the mental game to enter that state of untapped potential, which cultivates the “superhuman” and shows that you can do it too.
Where you may not think you'll come out of this dismal state, Tofe will guide you in the right direction with his lived experience and concept of Practical Resilience. That is the mental framework designed to have you able to withstand crisis and subsequently, increase your emotional intelligence so you can bounce back after every fall.
Tofe a thought leader on resilience, not on hacking the body to get you the set of abs you’ve always wanted. He's here so you have the mental artillery to hold yourself together in case of a traumatic crisis. If you want the perfect body, Tofe's not your guy for that. When everyone is focused on having a six-pack body they forget that having a six-pack mind is more important.
