MOTM #144 Fix Your Knees with Ben Patrick, The Knees Over Toes Guy

Monday, September 23rd, 2019

Pumped as hell for you guys to hear this one!

Join me for an incredible conversation with Ben Patrick, founder of the Athletic Truth Group, and creator of the knee ability program that has changed my life. I know, that's a big statement. But I'm speaking my truth.

Be skeptical. I don't blame you. All I ask is that you listen to the entire episode, hear what Ben has to say, and then decide for yourself. PS – Discount code coming your way so you can try out the program for yourself. Got knee pain? I've got just the thing for you.

In This Episode You'll Hear:

  • Ben’s back story – trust me, you’re going to want to listen to this
