Joe Kenn introduced me to Loren Landow at the 2013 NSCA National Conference in Las Vegas where Loren was the keynote speaker. Landow is a fixture at most conferences due to the high demand of his ability to communicate his vast knowledge  and experience to practitioners in all arenas.

Landow has trained everyone from Olympians to NFL Players to UFC fighters at the highest levels. Landow has earned a reputation for his training top-notch athletes and has developed a rapport through trust with some of the best athletes in the world.

This interview reinforced the positive interaction I have had when speaking with Loren at conferences and clinics. Loren is about helping others and has no secrets when it comes to producing the best training information he can. It is evident that Landow cares for his athletes and wants the best for them as people and not just as testimonials. Landow is one of the best at what he does, but he doesn't have the ego to match. Enjoy.
