Up and running!

Brodie’s podcasts are the perfect supplement to his other forums. My expectation was that I probably shouldn’t run again due to pain and given all the myriad of myths my friends kept telling me about the dangers of running for pleasure.

I personally had the experience of having Brodie as my online physiotherapist after years of aimlessly trying to find solutions, which was an absolutely excellent decision.

He is a wealth of knowledge, resources and encouragement and I’ll never look back.
Thanks big time Brodie!

A happy runner again

I came across this podcast when I was dealing with a bad bout of ITB syndrome after a 25k race. I found the tips on ITBS and other injuries really helpful. Trust me, you’d want to learn the stuff that Brodie talks about sooner than later!

THE podcast for running injury remedies and prevention

Brodie really knows his stuff and following his wisdom has helped me through an injury that had me sidelined for ages.
His book is on my Christmas Wishlist and if no one buys it for me I’ll buy it for myself.
Plus he’s an Aussie! 🇦🇺
Keep it up Brodie! 👍🏻👍🏻
