Brock Armstrong has one goal: to help people move more of their body, more often in more and more interesting and satisfying ways.
After being sidelined from a career as a professional ballet dancer, a brief bout as a desk jockey, and a solid attempt at endurance sports, Brock now embraces a more functional approach to fitness and movement. This comes from his extensive experience in the health and wellness industry working with many leading personal trainers, coaches, gurus, and wellness consultants including: Mark Sisson (Primal Blueprint), Katy Bowman (Nutritious Movement), Dave Asprey (Bulletproof), Ben Greenfield (Kion), Monica Reinagel (Nutrition Diva), Abel James (Fat-Burning Man) and Mark Divine (Unbeatable Mind).
Brock is a writer and podcaster for Quick and Dirty Tips and Scientific American. He also co-hosts the podcast Change Academy with Monica Reinagel and has appeared as a guest and co-host on many health and wellness podcasts, such as: Ben Greenfield Fitness, Primal Blueprint, Primal Endurance, Endurance Planet, and The Whole Athlete. His new podcast is called Second Wind Fitness and you can find it anywhere you listen to audio,
