444. Making the Science of Fitness Accessible with Andy Galpin

May 16, 2022 | Interviews, Podcast

Andy Galpin is a country boy at heart, and he leveraged the work ethic that his community taught him to take on the world of fitness and exercise at a high level. With a degree in Exercise Science, a Master’s in Human Movement Sciences, and a PhD in Human Bioenergetics, he combined his love of people, science, and fitness into his full-time career as a scientist, teacher, and coach – or as he likes to put it, he “tells stories about human performance.” We talk about his background, how he uses storytelling to leverage a competitive advantage, and what he sees as the future of fitness and longevity.
