Andy McCloy on Impact, Influence and Finding Balance

Andy McCloy is the owner of BCI Sports Performance and Fitness, an Alabama-based fitness company providing a wide range of performance enhancement and strength training programs to clients ranging from high school and college players to pro athletes.

Their goal at BCI is to have each client reach a higher level of athleticism which will translate to higher levels of performance. His philosophy is built around what he calls the “Wheel of Conditioning,” where the body is the wheel and each aspect of fitness is equally recognized so it rolls efficiently.

Andy joins me today to discuss his program and how they help their clients achieve peak physical performance. He shares the story of when he had his hips replaced and how it changed his life, as well as his career, for the better.

He describes the scholarship program they offer and the clients they accept for it.

And he reveals why being connected is not the same as being engaged and the significant changes he applied in his personal life that enabled him to achieve a balance between his life, career, and fitness.

Put in your family and your self-care first, then build everything else around it. – Andy McCloy
