The Best of the Best

This podcast has been a priceless resource for me over the last few years, and without it I would not have been able to start my own Studio.

Lawrence has amassed a community of the greatest minds in evidence-based training, and I think we are only just at the beginning of where this will lead. I am continually learning from him and his guests, and this is a cornerstone for where I get my news on all things HIT-related. Keep up the phenomenal work!
