How to Prevent Client Injury with Nate Baker, Nick Baker, and Keith Yoho

On this episode we are joined by a trio of amazing clinic gym hybrid doctors: Nate Baker, Nick Baker, and Keith Yoho. All are chiropractors at Total Performance Clinic who believe in the power of exercise, showing not only that this model can be done, but also showing that it can be done well. There is a lot covered in today’s episode, including how to manage the client experience when transitioning them to the gym, the most important aspects of the clinic gym hybrid model, and how to ensure clients don’t get injured when training.

I had a conversation yesterday with a patient and she said… ‘I need to gain a lot of muscle very quickly,’ and my first thought was ‘no you don’t. You need to not get hurt… And we can build you from there.’” – Nick Baker
