Because he is one of the leading minds in this field and when Dr. Haff talks, many people listen. Haven’t heard of him? That’s ok too but if you are a trainer, an athlete or someone simply looking to improve your fitness and health, than today is your lucky day because Dr. Haff gives a ton of jaw dropping information in this discussion.
