adversity

Without it, there can be no growth. No progress.
Or, no sense of sweet victory and accomplishment.

Nothing feels better than overcoming a struggle. Our mission is to inspire a community to do better. To be better. That challenges the status quo. That embraces the white space areas of their life. And, if it is complex, tackles the challenges head on.

Join us. Listen to our podcast. Follow our adversity challenges. Or participate in an event.

About The Whiteboard Project

The Whiteboard Project /TWP/ is a media and events idea that challenges the concept of human potential.

Through it’s podcast, the hosts have open and honest dialogue with people who have pushed the boundaries of human potential across a broad spectrum of categories. /TWP/ aims to inspire self confidence in people so they muster the courage to tackle the ‘whitespace of their life’ whether that be improving their health, mindset, climbing a mountain, or tackling an important societal issue to raise awareness or impact change. /TWP/ hopes to lead from the front by creating unique adversity challenges like the ‘Locked & Loaded, 24 Hours of Isolation’ event and by helping people build their inner strength through wellness retreats. Collectively, through our community and partners, we can all leave the world in a little better shape then we found it. Each new day always brings about new opportunity. It's Your Move.

John Witzing

"Give me a lever and a place to stand,
and I will move the earth".

John is an endurance athlete and skydiver. He’s completed Ironman (3x's), multiple Ironman 70.3 and Olympic distance triathlon races, and did his first 30 mile mountain trail race in 2018. He enjoys exploring how the mind and body reacts within hostile environments, in order to help others overcome their self-imposed limitations or any other obstacles that come their way throughout life. He founded “The Whiteboard Project”, a media and events idea focused on encouraging people to develop the white space areas of their life, whether that be improving their health, mindset, climbing a mountain, or tackling an important societal issue to raise awareness or impact change. He believes that as humans, we have so many opportunities to do better. For that reason, he loves tackling new challenges and complex issues head on with the understanding that we are capable of more than we know.

Josh Chessman

When something is important, you do it even if
the odds are not in your favour”.

Josh is an entrepreneur and one of Canada’s top personal trainers. He is the co-owner of 24 Seven Family Gym and inspires a community to better their health everyday. He is a self described ‘avid experimentalist’ because he is known to tackle new challenges that take him outside of his comfort zone of the Strongman and CrossFit pursuits he is accustomed to. He has completed a half marathon and did his first 30 mile mountain trail race in 2018 on 7 weeks of training. He is a drummer and musician for the band, The New Blue. He is an avid reader and believer in Stoic philosophy. You will find him never backing down from a challenge and has a regular routine of facing his fears head on. The less he enjoys something the more likely he is to do it. Getting uncomfortable is the only way to get comfortable with whatever life throws at us. We need to be ready for that.
