What if fitness was about more than just aesthetics?  What if we viewed sport not just as a game, but as a transformative power in society, and training as a tool for resilience and durability?  These are just a few of the themes and questions Kelly Starrett unpacks in this podcast. In case you’re not familiar with Kelly, he’s a Doctor of Physical Therapy, renowned speaker, and a New York Times bestselling author, whose book Becoming a Supple Leopard made him into the biggest mobility guru in the world.
