  1. Hi,

    Can you tell me who the best person to speak to at the Just Fly Performance Podcast about scheduling a guest for an upcoming episode? Who would you recommend I get in touch with?

    Thanks so much for your help!


  2. Hey Joel, thanks for all the great content you share. I’ve been looking for a book you recommend, the best training sports book ever, by Brad Nutall(DB hammer). In your podcast korfist and fichter referenced him quite often. Any chance you could direct me to a place I could find this? Thanks!
