For her third appearance on the show (see episodes #135 and #142), Dr. Susan Kleiner joins me to discuss some of her presentation from the 2019 Fitness Summit. She had a fascinating take on what's been happening with grain production, manufacturing and how our bodies have, in turn, responded to them. An episode fully focused on grains had not been accomplished yet on this show and we dove in to it this week. Dr. Susan is always a w... Read more

When Dr. Lisa Lewis and her husband, Tony Gentilcore, joined me last year for their debut on the show (episode #157) I knew they would be returning again. Having just returned from the 2019 Fitness Summit, Lisa was one of the presenters there. She gave a fantastic presentation on what we know regarding motivation and how to coach our clients to success. There was one slide in particular which I felt deserved an episode all on it's ...

As many of my fellow trainers know, sometimes we have to refer out to other health and wellness practitioners to get more in-depth care when issues arise beyond our scope of practice. Locally, I've been fortunate to have chiropractors, massage therapists, physical therapists, etc. to refer out to when needed. I am joined today by Colorado based chiropractor, Dr. Ann Barter to talk about this type of collaborative care. She recogniz... Read more

I am joined this week by nutrition coach, Briana Theroux and nutrition researcher, Alex Leaf, on the topics of body acceptance, fat shaming and health at every size.

We dive into the nuance of these topics in today's episode. There are so many different avenues we could have taken these ideas ... Read more

This episode is a further dive into the thing... Read more

In this episode, we talk about myths and misconceptions about plant-based eating, veganism, raw foods and adequate protein intakes. There is a great deal of awesome information here. To ...

He has just released yet another in a long line of excellent books, this one called "40 Years With A Whistle."

It is always an honor to share time with Dan and I c... Read more

Jay Ashman of Ashman Strength and Kansas City Barbell joins me this week for his debut on the show.

To credit any one person for the growth my writing has seen over the last year or so, it would undoubtedly be Stephanie Lee. Rather than hoard her expertise to myself (and those who have also hired her services) I had to bring her on the show so more people could connect with her as well. Stephanie is firing up the next round of her already successful class, "Write For Impact." This is a time-sensitive link so make sure you act soo... Read more

In this episode, we also chat about taking our power back over the food we eat and some strategies for metabolic flexibility in dieting. To learn more about Leslie's work, chec... Read more
