004 The Guest Show | Gaining the trust of doctors as a coach with Dr.Nick, MDFeb 20, 2020
It is no secret that most of society puts their primary trust into medical doctors' opinions. At Active Life, we believe that the healthcare clinic of the future is the gym and the healthcare provider of the future is the coach; we also know how important it is to have the support and respect of medical providers to back you up.
Would you feel confident asking a local doctor to refer his patients to your gym? What do you think it would take for that doctor to do so? Do you believe that you have the trust and respect from the local medical community near you?
In this episode we talk to Dr. Nick, MD aka The Fittest Doc, about his contribution to CrossFit and the medical community nation wide as a doctor with SteadyMD. Dr. Nick is not your average MD; as a black belt in taekwondo, a CrossFit Level 1 Coach and the ability to throw around a heavy barbell, Dr. Nick is no stranger to the fitness community. We discuss building connections with physicians outside of the gym, finding the right healthcare provider for your lifestyle, plus he shares one of his pet-peeves when it comes to people trying to gain his business (hint: what not to do!). He’s full of information and passion for this industry and we’re excited to share this one with you!
