Paul Southern presents a Q&A with mobility maven and original supple leopard Kelly Starrett.
Kelly Starrett received his doctor of physical therapy degree in 2007. His popular Mobility Seminars sell out worldwide. His MobilityWOD.com site had more than 600,000 visitors in its first 80 days. Kelly’s background as an athlete and coach includes high-school and college football, paddling whitewater slalom canoe on the U.S. Canoe and Kayak teams, and leading the men’s whitewater rafting team to two national titles and competition in two world championships. He also owns and operates San Francisco CrossFit.
To say Starrett is in high demand is an understatement, and if you have ever attended one of his seminars, checked out his MobilityWOD site or had a chance to talk with him, you will understand why Starrett is in demand: he has a really big brain.
And sure, there are a lot of big-brained people just hanging out at coffee shops near colleges, sneering at dumb people and doing nothing for mankind. But Kelly has a higher purpose. He’s taking very complex ideas about human performance, rehab, kinesiology and health and breaking them down into single-serving sessions of legit-ness for anyone trying to improve his or her human condition.
