Pete is great at explaining technical and scientific information. Wonderful guests too!
Great informative podcast
Pete McCall is one of the most knowledgeable educators on the planet when it comes to the human body, how it works and how to make it work better longer. His podcast resonates because like his book, Smarter Workouts, and his eBook, Dynamic Anatomy, Pete relies on the latest in research. His guests are experts in all fields related to health and fitness. Pete is able to lead them through an hour on a wide range of topics. He covers it all, but a favorite topic is how exercise can address aging. That's especially important to me, a 69 year old endurance athlete new as a NASM ceterfied personal trainer and USAT coach. Give a listen. You'll be hooked as I am.
