  1. Dear Joe, I am a 56 year old woman, and have been workking out with a wonderful trainer for 2 years(shout out to Jason R!). I have listened to your podcast now for a year and have learned so much from you. I love how your podcast “classes” reinforce what I learn in the gym from my personal trainer. You stuff keeps me on track with nutrition/sleep/supplements and stretching. Love your positive message, even for the over 50 group!
