Ep. 4: Kevin Schultz-Sports Performance

Kevin is a good friend of ours and actually one of the main people that brought us together.  Along with all that he is extremely knowledgable in all things related to performance.  He has a variety of experiences and certifications all over the place from performance to soft tissue work and nutrition.  He is always reading and the books are very interesting (we list them below) and is a great conversation regarding athletes and just general health.  We had a great time catching up and checking out his set up at UW-Madison.  Enjoy.
