On this episode our guest is Ryan Hansen who is the Head Coach and Founder of Prymal as well as a 1st Phorm sponsored athlete. Ryan has had years of experience in the health and fitness industry which lead to him creating Prymal which is a combination of strength training, yoga, athleticism, and high intensity cardio training.

Ryan and I discuss how to attain true health you must first start by asking the question “Why?”, which is part of the reason for the Y in Prymal. We also tackle the topics of personal trainers and coaches are truly the first line of defense for primary care and how to help patients and clients achieve true change in their lives and level of health.
