Human Performance Podcast – Episode 1 with Greg Robins

So for better or worse, I and a few others have taken the liberty of going into a more focused and directed path with regards to the medium that is available to us via podcasting. Some will include interviews, others will be focused on education and more modern techniques with regards to movement, strength and conditioning, and fitness. The focus is borrowing from the idea and mission statement from Henry Lau’s Human Performance Forum, going forth with the name of “Human Performance Podcast“. Essentially, the mission statement that is being focused on is…

To educate individuals in human performance in various topics such as, though not limited to movement, rehabilitation, strength and conditioning, nutrition; and to bring awareness to unrelated topics/products that might help individuals in the fitness industry.

With this in mind, the format and structure is open for criticism, so feel free to leave any feedback!
