Athlete On Fire

Max Conserva is back on the show to share a new training protocol he helped develop for coaches and trainers to work better with adaptive athletes. So many trainers simply pass off the opportunity to work with athletes with prosthetics or other obstacles when it could be a rewarding and inspiring experience for both.  Today, we talk about the road Max went down to make sure he could reach more athletes like himself.  He lost most of a leg to an accident when he was a youngster.  We hope you will love the show and share with a trainer or coach you know!
