Training for the Olympic Games is mentally and physically exhausting. Decorated snowboarder Shaun White, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, told Oprah during a 2010 Oprah Show appearance that he saves up all of a day's energy for those two hours or so that he spends on the board, focused exclusively on the task. Still, he couldn't allow his competition to see what he was working on.

Here, Shaun reveals some details of his secret training regimen—including the site's remote, nearly inaccessible location.
