Coaching Hour with Chris Walker (#28)

“At the end of the day that’s what it comes down to—everyone does this to feel healthy and feel good, mentally and physically.” — Chris Walker

This episode is a bit different than the typical format – this is the Coaching Hour with Chris Walker. Chris and I have both been personal trainers for some time, and wanted to bring light to a few subjects and topics that we’ve been asked as trainers. We really dig into some detail on these topics, and discuss the struggle of learning a new skill, what makes a great coach, the importance of stretching, the effectiveness of heavy jump ropes, and more.

You can listen to the podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher and Overcast.
