    If You Had to Give Yourself Advice | Pro Path Event Speakers | Ep 154

    We're just back from our Pro Path Summit in Boston, Massachusetts -- where we assembled Pro Path Gym Owners and Staff who are changing how fitness and healthcare are done. One of the most impactful parts of the summit was the Pro Path Gym Owners who were brought up to speak on the question of "what advice would you give to the version of yourself from one year ago."
    Producers Note: Please excuse any audio hiccups as this was recorded live off of the room's PA system. Want to know more about the Pro Path? Start here:

Best Podcast

Before finding Active Life I was ready to never step foot inside of a gym again. I was tired of not seeing a true career in helping people become the best version of themselves. Once I binge-listened to the turning pro series on the podcast I was sold. I am now in Cohort to of ALP and I am loving every second of it!

This Podcast Should be a Staple for Coaches

Hands down, the best fitness podcast out there for coaches, PTs, doctors, and fitness enthusiasts. Lots of good information that weeds out misconceptions on a variety of health and fitness topics. Personally, I have gotten the most of the episodes that address sales (Episode 58 is killer!). Dr. Sean is ethical, straightforward and sometimes brutally honest but with the absolute best of intentions. The experience and advice both he and his guests offer on this podcast have allowed me to learn and progress rapidly as a coach.
