015: The Paradigm Shift Changing America – Sal Di Stefano

On this episode I speak with Sal Di Stefano of Mind Pump to talk about how there is a paradigm shift going on in America that will change healthcare and the way we view health and wellness.

Sal has been involved in the fitness industry since the age of 18 when he became a personal trainer. By age 19 he was managing health clubs and by 22 he owned his own gym. 17 years later he is now host of the Mind Pump Podcast along with co hosts Adam Schafer, Justin Andrews and producer Doug Egge

Throughout the episode we dive into how Sal’s early experiences in the fitness industry lead to his desire to bring truth and science to the fitness industry. With these changes, he believes that a greater level of health can be achieved by more people. We then discuss how these shifts will affect the healthcare space and how best we can be ready to make a lasting difference in the lives of our patients.
