E218 | Nick St. Louis of The Foot Collective

On Episode 218 of the Doc and Jock Podcast we catch up with Nick St. Louis of the Foot Collective. The Foot Collective is a group of Canadian physical therapists on a mission to help humans reclaim strong, functional and pain free feet through foot health education.

Every human has 2 feet and most of those feet aren’t working like nature intended. Your feet form the foundation for your body – without a strong foundation we compensate and eventually run into problems. Most people Nick sees with dysfunctional (not working properly) feet don’t have foot pain. They have problems upstream – low back pain, hip imbalances, knee pain – and most of those problems are a result of a problem with their foundation. Spread the word to anyone you know and help create awareness of the importance of foot health. Telling friends and family about The Foot Collective means giving them the power to change their health and access quality information about their body for free.

E215 | Chronic Pain & How To Fix It

On Episode 215 of the Doc and Jock Podcast Doc Danny sits down to talk about chronic pain. Chronic pain can be a weird thing. Take someone with lower back for example: often times patients complain of chronic pain of the lower back and as an assessment Danny will ask the patient to bend over and touch their toes and their response is to FREAK OUT. However when they are leaving Danny’s practice they’ll have no problem hinging to get their purse/bag. The point is that often times the fear of pain is worse than the pain itself. On this episode Danny explains how to treat someone in this situation and help get them past their chronic pain.

About Dan Doty

I grew up in a cold, flat corner of the Midwest, safe and happy but very cut off from most of the world.  My early years were filled with hunting, fishing, football, physical labor on farms and in fields, and more heavy metal concerts than is healthy.  In college I started travelling abroad and 10 years of inner and outer exploration began.  I travelled all over the world and got in lots of pickles.

My career has been wide ranging, but the core of adventure and human growth has always held steady.  After college I spent over 600 days as a wilderness therapy guide and led groups of struggling young men up mountains, down rivers, and across frozen lakes.  Along the way I absorbed and learned a ton about the process of mentoring and what it means to be a man in our culture today.  Ever since that time spent in the wilds, helping guys lives more real lives has been my obsession and mission.

My next chapter involved literally stepping out of the woods, taking a shower, and boarding a plane to New York City to start a completely new life.  I got a job as a public high school teacher in the Bronx and taught a group of amazing kids for two years as I earned a masters degree.  It was the most challenging and rewarding experience I’ve ever had, and I learned that I was a terrible academic teacher but affirmed that I was really good at developing relationships and mentoring young men.

I moved to Montana and began working with kids outdoors again when I got a call to be a PA on a wilderness based TV show.  I found a niche and launched a new career producing, shooting, and directing outdoor-based tv and film, most notably being a part of over 70 episodes of the hunting and food showMeatEater.  This incredible period offered constant travel to some of the most beautiful places on the planet and along the way I honed my storytelling skills through visual and written mediums.  It was a wild ride.

Today I live in Montana with my wife and son and too many animals.  I’m combining all of my experiences and am excited to offer experiences, services and media that all lead back to how men in our culture can show up in life in meaningful ways.  I believe that culturally we have created a situation for guys that rarely allows us to be ourselves, and I envision a world where we don’t have to hold back so much.

E212 | Dr. Andy Galpin

On episode 212 of the Doc and Jock Podcast we sit down with the doctor of storytelling Andy Galpin to learn how to coach with empathy.

Dr. Andy Galpin is a tenured Professor in the Center for Sport Performance at CSU Fullerton. He was born and raised in beautiful Rochester, WA. In addition to being one of the world’s leading muscle physiologist he also co-founded the Barbell Shrugged podcast with his buddies Doug Larson, Mike Bledsoe & Chris Moore (RIP).

On Episode Andy talks about understanding how to coach with empathy. Empathy is defined as “the ability to understand and share the feelings of another,” often times in the world of strength & conditioning coaches judge other coaches methods and tactics without any context to understand the method or drill. Andy’s recommendation is to think of 3 instances where the seemingly “wrong” action could be right. Typically if you do that you’ll end up realizing that most of the time they aren’t wrong.

After the education on empathy we get into a discussion on Andy’s new book Unplugged which aims to teach us how to evolve from technology to upgrade your fitness, performance & consciousness.

On Episode 210 of the Doc and Jock Podcast we are joined by Sal Di Stefano of the Mind Pump Podcast jump the show to talk about Mom’s, developing a fitness business mindset, podcasting, technology, fitness and training kids.  If that sounds like a mouth full it is!  


For more on Sal Di Stefano check out his bio and cruise on over to Mind Pump Media!  

Sal was 14 years old when he touched his first weight and from that moment he was hooked. Growing up asthmatic, frequently sick and painfully skinny, Sal saw weightlifting as a way to change his body and his self-image. In the beginning, Sal’s body responded quickly to his training but then his gains slowed and then stopped altogether. Not one to give up easily, he began reading every muscle building publication he could get his hands on to find ways to bust through his plateau. He read Arnold’s Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding, Mentzer’s Heavy Duty, Kubrick’s Dinosaur Training, and every muscle magazine he could find; Weider’s Muscle and Fitness, Flex, Iron Man and even Muscle Media 2000. Each time he read about a new technique or methodology he would test it out in the gym. At age 18 his passion for the art and science of resistance training was so consuming that he decided to make it his profession and become a personal trainer. By 19 he was managing health clubs and by 22 he owned his own gym. After 17 years as a personal trainer he has dedicated himself to bringing science and TRUTH to the fitness industry.
