EP 27 | Josh Bonhotal: The Future of Fitness
Play • 51 min

How many of you have ever been in need of a personal trainer? A fitness instructor? Somebody to tell you what to do when you go to the gym? 

Us humans are busy people. The last thing we want to do after we get off work, pick the kids up from school, drop them off at practice, prepare dinner…. is think about going to the gym. And when you make it to the gym, what will you do? You want to lift weights but nobody has ever taught you how, you don’t want to look dumb, so you get on the treadmill for 15 minutes until boredom succumbs. Back to your life of hurry. 

What if I said there was easier better way. I way in which you wouldn’t have to break the bank to afford the trainer at your gym but a way where your trainer would be at your finger-tips every day. The future of health, wellness, and fitness is within the app called Future.  

One of the most highly regarded performance coaches in America and the VP of Performance at Future, Josh Bonhotal, joins the show to chat all things Future. Previously, Josh was the Director of Sports Performance for Purdue Men’s Basketball, where he oversaw training and nutrition for a program that perennially ranked in the Top 25, earned two Sweet Sixteen appearances, and had multiple All-American selections during his tenure.

Before that, Josh worked for the Chicago Bulls in the NBA. As a part of the Bulls’ Strength & Conditioning staff, he coached Derrick Rose – while Rose won Rookie of the Year (2009) and MVP (2011) – and contributed to the team’s 62-win season in 2011-2012. Josh has been featured in ESPN, The Wall Street Journal, Sports Illustrated, and Women’s Health. Josh’s experience within the performance world is nothing short of some of the best in the country.
