Going to school for "Exercise Science" isn't much better as University classes are too expensive, slow, and boring; and they rarely cover actionable information (especially in the areas of exercise and nutrition). Strength & conditioning, health, exercise, nutrition, supplements, exercise programming, and human movement are rarely covered or require YEARS of "prerequisites".
The days of hoarding knowledge are OVER.
Information that changes how you feel on a daily basis or adds years to life SHOULD NOT COST 2 month's rent, and should be available WHEN & HOW you want it.
I HATE information being reserved for only a select few!
We MUST do better.
This is where I come in. I'm a tenured University Professor with a PhD in "Human Bioenergetics". I teach classes, publish research, and work with athletes in the areas of health, human performance, strength & conditioning, and nutrition. But, in my heart, I'm a storyteller.
So what am I doing about it? I don't know everything, and I can't fix this problem all by myself, but I think I can contribute to the solution.
Educate, entertain, & inspire the world through storytelling.
Enhance the human condition by providing the world with FREE & entertaining health, human performance, and nutrition education.
HOW I'M DOING IT
I want to do my small part by building a website (www.andygalpin.com) where I can put vetted, helpful, accurate info including things like:
Real peer-reviewed, scientific research
Resources for further learning
Much, much more!
-Why I Need Your Help-
Unfortunately, my lab, students, and athletes keep me pretty busy, so I've decided to try opening a Patreon account. The hope is that if enough people contribute small (virtually unnoticeable to you) amounts, I can hire real video, website, and technical support. This will 1) ensure it stays FREE to those who can't afford to contribute, 2) dramatically enhance the quality of the website, and 3) exponentially increase the rate of content creation.
I don't expect, nor demand your money for these videos. My only hope is you enjoy. However, if you do decide to contribute, please know EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR will go right back into the project. I won't withdraw a penny. Who knows, with enough help I might even build an app! :-)
So if you appreciate what i'm trying to do, please consider contributing to help me build my dream!
