Dan TeamVH ,

Go to resource

The Strength Coach Podcast has been a primary resource for the growth of our crew at Varsity House for years!

This is the gold standard for podcasts in the industry and truly is the original!

Love it.

Good info

Great information, thorough with good variety. However, there is too much nasal breathing into the microphone and noisy background which is quite distracting. It sounds like the host can’t hold still and is fidgeting with a pen or computer. It could be more professional.

Jen.Szigeti ,

AWESOME!

I am loving The Strength Coach Podcast. The host Anthony jam packs every episode with tons of awesome content, interviews, and guest, covering all things health, fitness, strength training and more. I highly recommend!
