    In this conversation, you get a taste of the brilliant mind that is Tom Purvis as we talk about breathing mechanics, client assessment, prescribing vs continuously analysing and forces.

    If you can, I'd recommend watching this conversation on YouTube.

Awesome Podcast

Tremendous amount of in depth topic discussion combined with a massive range/wealth of knowledge from Ben and many other professionals of the field mean that I have no longer any need to look any further for good and interesting content. I listen to these podcasts daily whether I am at work or relaxing and as a result of my growing understanding towards fitness and muscle building, I am finding my performance to be improving all the time as well as noticing a significant reduction in injuries etc. Top stuff 💪

My go to source of information

As an up and coming personal trainer with a passion to help others, having the right information is paramount to providing a solid service. This podcast and all the guests Ben has on help me grow with never ending useful information on fitness, cognitive function and how to generally improve day to day. I find myself listening to them again on repeat as there’s just too much information to obtain from a single listen, which is ideal when I’m out walking the dog or driving. I look forward to another year of epic content and cannot wait to see where this podcast goes from here.

Thoughtful and Thorough

Ben always seems to go above and beyond in his podcasts and choice on guests. His points of view and knowledge he’s built up over his career add up to some very intelligently thought out points and interesting thought provoking conversations with his guests. The podcasts always leave you empowered and wanting to improve your life, business, and body in some way shape to form
