Longtime friend of Power Athlete and “Physical Culture” visionary, Bert Sorin, joins us this week. The guys trade stories of growing up in a strength world devoid of social media and look back on those simple times fondly. If you haven’t heard Bert’s story of how he finagled his way onto his college track and field team, that alone is worth the listen.
You know him as Bert Sorin, the Notorious B.E.R.T. His lineage is as long and impressive as his beard. When he’s not running the world renowned Sorinex, he’s spending time in the proverbial “thin air”. If there’s one thing Bert does better than make strength equipment, it’s make friends with some of the coolest people you’ll ever meet. We’re proud to call him one of ours.
