Dr. Perry sits down with the awesome Andrew Read, Strength and Conditioning Coach and Master RKC Instructor who works with athletes of all types.

IT’s an awesome episode!

His motto: ‘I believe that humans are all athletes. There is no difference in my mind between what a professional athletes needs to what a stay at home mother needs.’ 

Andrew talks about running and why every human being should be doing it! Excerpt from his website says it all: A professional athlete needs to run, turn and squat to compete in their sport. But we all need to run to cross the street or chase down a child. We have to turn to get in and out of the car or put groceries away. And we squat every day when we get in and out of the car, in and out of chairs and even on and off the toilet.

The goal of Read Performance Training is simple, but far beyond just the shallow level of making you look good. Our goal is to help you reclaim that inner athlete, that joyous child that could run and play all day long. You’ll end up looking good as a result of our training, but we aren’t concerned with something so superficial as our sole goal.

The modern fitness industry is filled with inexperienced trainers – 70% of trainers last less than 5 years – and equipment manufacturers telling you that you need expensive machines and supplements to get in shape.Visit him at
