ABOUT TODD HARGROVE

I write and speak about emerging science that is relevant to manual and movement therapists, such as bodyworkers, physical therapists, chiropractors, personal trainers, yoga instructors, athletic coaches, etc. 

Most of the positive feedback I receive about my writing is that it synthesizes ideas from different fields and makes complex material easy to understand and apply.

It has sold more than 7,000 copies, been translated into two languages, and has received acclaim from physical therapy professors, trainers for professional sports teams, neuroscientists, and researchers in pain and biomechanics.

Chris Guillebeau is a best-selling author, traveler and general badass. His Philosophy borrow from his website will give a you a sense of the our conversation.

PHILOSOPHY

The essence of my philosophy is this:

  1. You don’t have to live your life the way other people expect
  2. You can do good things for yourself and help other people at the same time
  3. If you don’t decide for yourself what you want to get out of life, someone else will end up deciding for you
  4. There is usually more than one way to accomplish something

In short, I’m interested in the convergence between highly personal goals and service to others.
