Physical Preparation with Andy McCloy


If you haven’t heard of Andy McCloy before today, then I’m glad this will be your first exposure to him.

Andy is not only a guy I deeply respect, but someone who is truly making a difference with the young athletes he coaches.

In today’s show we’re going to talk about Andy’s unique path in the world of physical preparation, his overview and personal training philosophy, and of course we’re going to have some fun and talk about his shoe game and music preferences as well.

Here’s a brief overview of what we covered in this show:

  • Andy’s unique back story, and how he got into the world of physical preparation
