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. 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 over 18 years as a personal trainer, he has dedicated himself to bringing science and TRUTH to the fitness industry. Sal is also a dedicated father to a son and daughter.

During this conversation, Sal and I will discuss micro adversity, how restriction sets you up for failure, and how his understanding of science has changed the way he communicates fitness and health to others.
