One of my main goals with this show is to give you the knowledge you need to be able to separate fact from fiction. So I’m really grateful that my friend, and doctor of physical therapy, Dr. Sarah Court is joining me again today to help bust some fitness myths!

We took the questions submitted by YOU and did our best to explain why these myths are nonsense and what you can do instead. 

I’m really excited to bring this to you as a regular segment 🥳 – so if you have a fitness myth that you’re not quite sure about – let us know by sending me an email, DM on Instagram, or by leaving a voicemail on the Body Nerd Hotline at 818-396-6501.
