Fighting Fit – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

If you’ve ever had folks come visit you in New Orleans from out of town, they’ve probably said, “If I lived here I’d put on a hundred pounds.”

They’re not the folks who come here to visit ProTac Fitness. Those folks say, “If I lived here I could benchpress another hundred pounds.”

Canaan Heard

Protac Fitness is a New Orleans business that trains people to get in shape for the US military and law enforcement. It’s founder and CEO, Canaan Heard, joins Peter on this edition of Out to Lunch.

Beth Winkler

Beth Winkler is also in the physical fitness business. But rather than get you into peak fitness and fighting condition, Beth’s happy if she can just get you to walk around without pain. Beth is co-owner of a local chain of physical therapy clinics called Magnolia Physical Therapy.

This Out to Lunch is all about how to kick ass, and what to do after your ass gets kicked.
