the youth fitness podcastThe Youth Fitness Podcast is coming in May.

The Youth Fitness Podcast will feature special guests from around the world talking about everything youth fitness: from strength and conditioning for kids to play, fitness, youth sports, athlete development, physical education, daily physical activity, injury prevention and mental skills to name but a few. We’ll also be making time to talk about topics of interest to you based on your submitted questions.

I’m excited to announce the first guest of The Youth Fitness Podcast will be Coach Dave Gleason. I first met Dave while attending the International Youth Conditioning Association’s annual conference in Louisville, Kentucky six years ago. Dave is not only a professional colleague, he’s a close friend as well.
