Dr. John Rusin, thank you for putting out all this awesome content! As a student PT and strength and conditioning coach all this information is very helpful. Before listening yo our podcast I never knew about the hybrid field of PT and strength and conditioning, and now it is definitely where I want to be. I am currently starting to brand myself now while training and I absolutly love it!

Please keep the content coming!

Steven Djembe ,

Great podcast !!

Amazing info ! However the intro is a little douchey . A little humble pie goes a long way . However it is a very informative podcast on all things manual therapy and performance .

Absolute Must Listen for DPTs and S&C professions

I've listened to almost all of all of these podcasts. Dr. John and guests cover a wide variety of Physio and S&C topics, and I'm always entertained. The topics covered are things that I am able to implement with patients in the clinic and clients in the gym, as well as I my own personal training, and I always get results. Could not give this a higher recommendation.
