He also investigates the impact of stress on efforts to be physically active. He has a PhD Kinesiology and Health Education and is the Clinical Exercise Physiologist at Yale-New Haven Hospital.

In today’s episode we dig into the role of stress on exercise answering questions like; what is stress, can you be stressed and not feel it and how can we best manage our stress? One you don’t want to miss!
