This video has it all. Episode 1: San Francisco

After arriving in California for the 146th annual Pleasanton Highland Games, I had a chance to run to see Kelly Starrett at San Francisco Crossfit. Kelly has been doing some amazing work spreading information about mobility and what we can all do to improve in this area.

Kelly’s book “Becoming a Supple Leopard” has been critical in helping me stay on the top of my sport. Like many I have to deal with a normal job that is putting me for many hours sitting down. By using exercises that are recommended in the book to address my hip and low back issues, I has able to win another highland Games World Championship in Scotland.

Getting the opportunity to learn from Kelly in person was humbling and a great opportunity. He is very passionate and wants athletes to learn how to address their own mobility issues.

Kelly and his wife Juliett have also been working on helping kids get back to using their bodies. They talk about this work in an interview we did.

The Pleasanton games was a real struggle. The best guys in the world are there. Ai am giving it everything I have. Even at 6′ 270lbs I am the runt of our group. So pure strength isn’t going to get it done for me. That is why information from guys like Kelly is so important. This gives me the opportunity to use all of the power I have by being pain free and able to move into better, stronger positions.find Kelly at
