231 – What I Learned My First Year In PT School – Joe Rinaldi

Podcast cover
Read more

Jimmy talks to 2nd year SPT from Drexel University Joe Rinaldi about what he learned in his first year of PT school.  This talk stemmed from a blog post that Joe wrote that outlined some great lessons that he wanted to share.

Joe’s Bio:

My name is Joe, I’m 23 years old and I’m from Westfield, NJ. I’ve played sports my entire life and have always been fascinated with fitness. I began my undergraduate studies at Bucknell University where I majored in Biology and worked in a research lab. After a few weeks at school, I felt that something was missing so I decided to walk on to Bucknell’s football team. Unfortunately, my collegiate football career quickly came to an end due to some medical concerns. Without football, I found myself yearning for both a physical and mental challenge and that is exactly what I found in the weight room. I found myself constantly in the gym and I quickly fell in love with fitness. After my sophomore year I realized that molecular biology wasn’t my passion and I decided to change course to pursue what I loved. I decided to pursue a degree in exercise science by transferring to Rutgers University where I completed my Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science and Applied Kinesiology.

While attending Rutgers, I interned and then worked with my high school athletic trainer, Chris Flores, at his sports performance and personal training facility – Flo Fitness. While working with Chris and fellow trainer Johnny Rodriguez, I learned more about fitness, exercise and movement than I had in almost a decade of lifting weights. While working at Flo Fitness I had the incredible opportunity to train youth athletes of all ages, including high level high school and collegiate athletes. Working at Flo Fitness afforded me valuable coaching and training experience that I will carry with me throughout my career. My coaching experience at Flo Fitness has given me a deep coaching skill set as well as a unique perspective on training for sports performance and injury prevention.

I am currently pursing my Doctorate Of Physical Therapy (DPT) at Drexel University in Philadelphia and plan to graduate in March of 2019. When I’m not at the gym or studying, I enjoy staying up to date on some of my favorite sports team (Yankees, Giants, Knicks) as well as practicing video editing and cinematography.

I enjoy combining my passions of cinematography, fitness and physical therapy to produce content on my Instagram page (@joe_flofit) – you should check it out! I’m a total nerd when it comes to all things physical therapy… well, I’m just a nerd in general. In addition to physical therapy, fitness and film-making, I enjoy motivating others and spreading positive messages.

I am always open to feedback, suggestions, and constructive criticism, so don’t hesitate to reach out! If you have any questions, comments, suggestions or you just want to get in touch, please feel free to contact me via Instagram or through the contact page.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy!

Joe Rinaldi, SPT

Brad has been a lifelong student of, and catalyst for, optimal human performance. In his 20’s, he earned a Masters in Physical Therapy, which he used to treat patients across the spectrum of orthopedic/neurological diagnoses.

306 – Student Loan Education with Heather Jarvis & Kevin Soehner

Podcast cover
Read more

We talk to two experts in finance and student loans, Heather Jarvis from AskHeatherJarvis.com and Kevin Soehner from iGrad.com and enrich.org, to improve your financial literacy.

Heather Jarvis – AskHeatherJarvis.com

Heather graduated from Duke University School of Law cum laude owing $125,000 in student loans and facing 30-years’ worth of $1,200 monthly payments.  No one ever told Heather that she couldn’t afford to go to Duke, even though, um, she couldn’t.  Her mother was a modestly paid executive assistant and her father a mostly unemployed Shakespearean actor.

Heather didn’t realize she couldn’t afford an expensive education until after she got one.

At one time, people who earned fancy grades at fancy law schools got offered fancy jobs with fancy paychecks.  Having become all fancyfied, Heather had to decide: take the job she had been dreaming about all her life that only paid $25,000 per year (representing people facing criminal prosecution), or make a boatload of money.

Duke Law’s generous loan repayment assistance program made it possible for Heather to eschew the money without defaulting on her student loans (Go Devils!).  She will always be grateful that Duke enabled her to continue ignoring her own financial security in pursuit of her irresistible urge to stand up for people in trouble.

Heather has practiced public interest law for more than a dozen years.  Beginning in 2005, Heather focused her advocacy work on reducing the financial barriers to practicing public interest law.

Heather has contributed to student debt relief policy for the House Education Committee and others in Congress, and has dedicated her professional efforts to advancing public service loan forgiveness which allows recent graduates to dedicate their careers to the greater good.  Heather leads efforts to establish and expand student debt relief programs and to inform borrowers, schools, and employers about how to benefit from available debt relief programs.

Widely recognized by school professionals and media representatives as an expert source of information, Heather has trained thousands of students and professionals and is sought after for her sophisticated legal knowledge and accessible teaching style.

Kevin Soehner – iGrad.com

Kevin coordinates interdepartmental communication and workflow while overseeing our back end operational units. Outside the office, Kevin can be found binging on Netflix and lamenting the latest Buffalo sports disappointment.

About iGrad –

In 2009, a group of financial aid professionals decided to tackle the alarming lack of financial capability among college students. Our sole mission is to empower this population to effectively manage their money, limit and repay their debts, and begin successful careers.

Today, iGrad serves over 1.2 million students across 500 schools and organizations around the country. Our award-winning platform equips students with the tools needed to succeed in the real world of personal finance.

Danny spent 7 years active duty in the U.S Army as a physical therapist. He had the distinct privilege of working with a range of soldiers from amputees learning how to walk again, to the highest-level Special Operations soldiers getting ready for deployments. Danny served with the 25th Infantry Division at Schofield Barracks, Hawaii from 2010-2013. He was the only direct access Physical Therapist responsible for management of injuries and injury prevention for a Brigade of 4000 soldiers during this time.

Danny has been an instructor in a variety of different settings.

About Athlete’s Potential

Athletes’ Potential was founded on the idea that the client comes first. Healthcare quality is at an all time low. Many people pay for healthcare not just with their money but also with their time. Time is the most valuable resource we all have.

Our goal is to help out clients live a high performance pain free life. If you like to do CrossFit, we’ll help you stay healthy while you train. If you love tennis, we’ll get you back on the court and keep you there so you enjoy quality time with your friends/team that you love. If you’re a runner and have aspirations of doing your first half marathon, we’ll help you accomplish that goal!

We want our patients to know that we have their best interest at heart. We also want to be a resource for our community, coaches, athletes and trainers around the world. We constantly put up new videos, podcasts and blog posts to help our community stay healthy and perform at their highest level.

About Mobility WOD Tactical

Over the past 10 years MWOD has been quietly working with many branches of the military and law enforcement. Our goal has been simple. Help these men and women preserve their greatest asset which is their own body. We call this “preserving the human capital”.

Across the Department of Defense there are almost 1 million non-combat related musculoskeletal injuries per year. It’s an astounding amount of injuries and costs billions in medical care, lost training time and disability when our soldiers leave service.

The problem is massive and our solution is to teach these men and women how to move well, train correctly and perform basic maintenance on themselves. By doing so we get a two fold response of both decrease injuries and increased performance.

Efficacy and safety of very early mobilisation within 24 h of stroke onset (AVERT): a randomised controlled trial.

You can find it in the lancet from July 2015, and the link to it is in the show notes of this episode.

We talk with Professor Julie Bernhardt is co-leader of The Florey’s Stroke theme, and leads the AVERT Early Intervention Research Program.

The background for avert is:  

Early mobilisation after stroke is thought to contribute to the effects of stroke-unit care; however, the intervention is poorly defined and not underpinned by strong evidence. We aimed to compare the effectiveness of frequent, higher dose, very early mobilisation with usual care after stroke.

For each trial, review or guideline, PEDro provides the citation details, the abstract and a link to the full text, where possible. 

All trials on PEDro are independently assessed for quality. 

These quality ratings are used to quickly guide users to trials that are more likely to be valid and to contain sufficient information to guide clinical practice. 

PEDro is produced by the Institute for Musculoskeletal Health, School of Public Health at the University of Sydney and is hosted by Neuroscience Research Australia.

And did we mention… this is free?!  Find PEDro at https://www.pedro.org.au/

Here we looked at

Now To celebrate PEDro’s 20th birthday they’ve have identified the five most important randomised controlled trials in physiotherapy published in the last 5 years. These trials were nominated by PEDro users, and an independent panel of international trialists judged the nominations received.

Now YOU get to take advantage of hearing a little more about these standout pieces of work… by the people who created them.


First up… is Fashion?  It’s not about clothes or looking good… thank goodness or I’d be WELL out of my element, but this Fashion UK trial’s title was:  Hip arthroscopy versus best conservative care for the treatment of femoroacetabular impingement syndrome (UK FASHIoN): a multicentre randomised controlled trial

 – if you had scrabble letters you’d find FASHION UK in there somewhere and let’s be honest, FASHIO UK was easier to remember than…. Wait what was that title again?

We talked with Physical Therapist Chris Mamula who is somewhat of an expert on financial independence. Chris retired at 41 years old and now writes, podcasts and blogs about how you can do that too.

We covered:

  • Why should you pursue FI even if (and especially if) you love your job.
  • How can you reframe the idea of saving as sacrifice to viewing saving as security, options and freedom.
  • What did my life look like while saving toward FI.
  • Why retirement was the wrong goal for me and likely is for you as well.

#TBT Scott Chesney – Motivation, Perspective and Anything is Possible

Podcast cover
Read more

ThrowBackThursday we go back to 2016’s National Student Conclave in Miami Florida where the keynote speaker was Scott Chesney.  Scott tells his amazing story, the theme of his keynote address that anything is possible.  He shares insight & words to live by, and the game changing wheels on his chair.

Scott’s Bio:

Scott Chesney, a two-time world traveler and a navigator of life with paralysis for over two decades, has presented to over one million people in 38 countries.

After awakening to paralysis at the age of 15 from a sudden spinal stroke, Scott has amassed a resume of transformational experiences, powerful insights, and inspiring stories that cut to the core of the human spirit. He has become a nationally and internationally recognized workshop and keynote presenter, and his positive and inspiring messages have changed countless lives. His insights have been coveted and applauded by Fortune 500 corporations, hospitals/rehab centers, associations, sports’ teams, audiences at The United Nations, The Pentagon and the FBI, colleges and universities, and K-12 schools.

Realizing that his audience members wanted more personal guidance after his presentations, Scott became a professional Life Coach in which he combines transformational techniques and strategies that he learned from his world travels and continues to practice himself today to help people create personalized blueprints for navigating life happily and successfully. As a person who skydives, walks on hot coals on his hands, para-sails, and continues to engage in many other adventures around the world, Scott prides himself of living life to its fullest and encourages and trains audiences and clients to do the same.

In addition to keeping a busy speaking and coaching schedule, Scott became President of Raise Hope Foundation in ©2014 that trains, mentors, and places people with disabilities and veterans for competitive careers in financial services. He is also an Ambassador for the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, an Ambassador for Kessler Foundation, a member of the Seton Hall University Leadership Advisory Council, a member of the Board of Trustees for The Knowles Foundation and a member of the National Speakers Association (NSA). He has also served on the Board of Trustees for Children’s Specialized Hospital. Scott graduated from Seton Hall University in 1992 with a B.A. degree in Communications.

Scott is married, has two children, and resides in New Jersey.
