“Success demands singleness of purpose.”

What’s Your Y?

Purpose is the most powerful motivator in life. It’s what gets you out of bed at 5am to lift weights before school or work. Every athlete has a unique sense of purpose and a compelling personal story behind it.

The YOLKED® “What’s Your Y” series brings those inspirational stories to light, as we share a behind-the-scenes look at what drives members of Team YOLKED to reach new heights in their personal and professional journeys.

Subscribe and get involved with our blog articles, videos, social posts and interviews with Team YOLKED® athletes all answering that one question, “What’s Your Y?”
