Why Fitness Professionals Should Be Giving Nutritional Advice

Why Fitness Professionals Should Be Giving Nutritional Advice

Today, I have another interview for you, and we are continuing on the theme of nutritional advice.

I interview Yuri Elkaim.

You know, Yuri.  You have seen him before on EFI.  I interviewed Yuri while I was at a fitness conference in California.  We did a quick interview on Pre-habilitation Concept.

Importance of Doing Pre-habilitation Exercises

Yuri is a strength coach for the men’s soccer team at the University of Toronto and the creator of: Super-Nutrition-Academy-with-Yuri-Elkaim-2

Yuri is a cool guy to hang out with and chat with.  I have been lucky to speak with him in Orange County, Las Vegas, and San Diego.
