Welcome to Fitness Education Online Podcast!

In this episode of the Fitness Education Online Podcast, Travis Mattern interviews Michael Hynard.

Michael’s career in the health & fitness industry especially working with special populations is his calling and passion. Michael's relationship to disability is deeply personal: In 1996 his then 1 year old daughter Siobhan was diagnosed amongst other conditions with Cerebral Palsy.

His own family experience inspired Mike to start the FAM™ Program understanding that only an integrated and collaborative approach can be successful, even more so in the special needs demographics.

Mike works as closely as possible with related specialists in their fields while working with special populations to give the program a robust and well-rounded approach that benefits the athletes most.

People mentioned in the episode the call:
Crossroads Adaptive Athletic Alliance: Sara Ohlsen
Fist Adaptive course I did: Max Conserva and Dr. Theresa Larson
Prof Amanda Kloo
Prof Ionna Novack
Dr. Karen Pape
