Life Changing

I had Joe as a professor in college and interviewed him about being a gym owner; only to find out how successful Varsity House was a couple years prior. I started listening to the BOS Podcast when Joe & Dan launched it, several months prior to opening up my gym when I was coach at another facility. Since I was a listener to the podcast, one thing lead to another - I attended a BOS mentorship and then joined the inaugural Strongest Year Plan gym owner development group.

My gym wouldn’t be where it is today without Joe & Dan’s business mentorship. All starting from listening to this podcast.

Impactful Podcast

There aren’t enough positive words I could use to explain this Bus of Strength podcast. These are some of the best and most knowledgeable coaches in the industry. Everyone who gets invited on the show shares great information. I’ve trained at varsity during my high school days and today I’m part of the Varsity House Education community. Must listen for anyone who are strength & conditioning, fitness, private sector professionals as well entrepreneurs.
