Today on What Got You There Sean sits down with Dr. Kelly Starrett. Kelly Starrett is a coach, physical therapist, author, and speaker who has revolutionized how athletes think about human movement and athletic performance.
His 2013 release, Becoming a Supple Leopard has become a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller. Kelly and his work have been featured in Tim Ferris’ Four Hour Body, Competitor Magazine, Inside Triathlon, Outside Magazine, Details Magazine, Power Magazine, and the Crossfit Journal.
Before starting his own physical therapy practice at San Francisco CrossFit, one of the first 30 CrossFit affiliates, he practiced performance-based physical therapy at the world-renowned Stone Clinic. In his current practice, Kelly continues to focus on performance-based Orthopedic Sports Medicine with an emphasis on returning athletes to elite level sport and performance.
Kelly’s clients have included Olympic gold-medalists, Tour de France cyclists, world and national record holding Olympic Lifting and Power athletes, Crossfit Games medalists, ballet dancers, military personnel, and competitive age-division athletes.
In this episode Kelly discusses his take on a healthy diet and movement. He talks about some of the people who have had the biggest impact on him and what inspires him on a daily basis. They cover the sitting epidemic and what he and his wife Juliet are doing to combat that at their daughters school in Northern California. Kelly also discusses the damage that flying can cause on the human body and what you can do about it. This is one of the most jam packed episodes of What Got You There and will be a favorite of anyone interested in health and wellness.
