Episode 36: A PT Walks Into A CrossFit Box, with Dr. Patrick Chandler

Dr. Patrick Chandler takes some time out of a full coaching and PT schedule to stop by and chat with Dr. J and Dr. T.

It’s still a rare thing to find a doctor of physical therapy operating out of a gym of any sort. Dr. P’s home gym @ks_athletic_club had the vision to hire him as a coach and utilize his PT background to help deliver a level of coaching and performance-based PT that is truly rare. We dive deep into fact vs. fiction in the world of #CrossFit and discuss what makes for a sustainable training practice that helps you train and move well for a lifetime.
