In this episode, we're keeping it in the family by featuring an in-depth interview with my brother Cody Storey. He's a cutting-edge, next level fitness expert and functional movement coach.

Do you think exercise is good for you? Is the gym your home away from home? Do you judge your level of health and fitness by how you look in the mirror, or by how you feel on a daily basis living in your body?

Cody's breakdown of physical strength, conditioning, and mobility in this episode is going to myth-bust many commonly held beliefs, and probably cause you to seriously re-think how and when you workout. Warning: You might even end up ditching your gym membership, and turning your local park into your fitness playground.  

In the rapidly growing paradigm of functional movement training, Cody is one of the leading experts, and during this show, he'll help you build a new relationship with your body and a much deeper understanding of how nature designed it to move.

So get ready to learn by unlearning everything you think you know about working out.

Do me, the show, yourself, and the world a favor by sharing this episode with your favorite gym rat.

To embracing your body's innate wisdom,

Luke
