In Episode 22 I get a chance to sit down with Dr. Zach Long, a Board Certified Sports Specialist and the creator of the industry leading fitness website, TheBarbellPhysio.com.
I reached out to Zach after coming across some of his content online and was blown away at the amount of great insight and knowledge he puts out there. He has a really cool story about how he got involved in fitness and physical therapy and his path to starting and building upon his website, The Barbell Physio.
His Dad was his high school football coach and probably the biggest influence on his life and had a great quote he used to say, “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive”. Very fitting for this episode and the entire Just Get Started Podcast series!
We get into a whole lot of different topics where we crush a few myths and learn a little bit about “Dry Needling”.
I know you all with love this conversation and if you get a chance to listen I hope you enjoy!

About the Host:
It’s hard to write these things about yourself but I’m just a very curious guy that wants to learn as much as I can about the world and the people in it. With a new found motivation many years ago to achieve certain goals and push beyond status quo, I wanted to speak with people that were breaking out of their comfort zones and try to capture how they were doing it and what insight could be shared to help others. I hope you all will continue along on the journey with me and share any feedback you have.
