The strength and fitness industry has for too long been dominated by overly-tan, annoyingly-loud YouTube celebrities with less than factual content, aka broscience. Tune in to Strength Chat – hosted by a group of Coaches and Athletes with over 60 years of combined experience – as they talk fact, science, and strength with world-renowned strength, conditioning, and rehab professionals.
You may remember today’s guest from episode 68 a year or so back! Ryan Lockard is the founder and head trainer at Specialty Athletic Training, an incredible local organization devoted to helping special needs individuals train to get stronger and healthier.
As one parent put it… “There is a special place in heaven for you and each and every one of your staff.”
In his own words – the mission of Specialty Athletic Training is “…to make fitness fun and encourage self-esteem building and healthy lifestyle choices. We are passionate about the positive effects that exercise can have in the lives of our clients and their families!”
Our hosts and Ryan discuss the intricacies of training the special needs population and successes he’s seen with his athletes. An insightful conversation into an important and rewarding part of the strength & fitness story.
