Good

Good guests and good questions being asked but for the love of f**k Pfaff is pronounced Paff not Faff!! Even when you are interviewing people who know him and pronounce it Paff you still say Faff back to them!

eell87 ,

Please no more Smith

I can deal with another James Smith podcast. He over complicates subjects and to be honest makes our industry sound unbelievably boring.

Paddy Waplington ,

Great Podcasts!

Interesting and informative podcasts. Robbie interviews some of the best coaches from around the world, and as well as covering current topics on all things strength & wellness he always seems to have a laugh with his guests.

Recommend his podcasts to all Coaches.
