David Weck is slightly insane.
You may already know this if you have seen any of his crazy “Weck Method” videos.
And the dude is wicked smart. He is the creator of WeckMethod and the CEO and Founder of BOSU Fitness. He is the inventor of the BOSU Balance Trainer, the new WeckMethod BOSU Elite, the RMT Club, and other products. He has worked in fitness for more than 22 years and has helped people of all fitness levels including elite athletes from multiple sports. He is a consummate student of movement who believes physical education is the foundation for a happy and healthier world.
Not only that, but just a few weeks ago, he descended upon my home in Spokane, and you get to listen into the pure fitness madness that ensued – and pick up some very fringe, little-known tactics that are going to make your core absolutely unstoppable.
