Podcast #23-18 Ben Reuter- FitLabPGH & Moving2Live Podcast Host




After 88 episodes of FitLabPGH and 40 from Moving2Live this week’s episode is something a little different…Ben Reuter, PhD, CSCS*D, ATC, Co-Founder and Host of the FitLabPGH and Moving2Live Podcasts. Ben is a faculty member at California University of Pennsylvania. An exercise physiologist, he holds certifications from the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), and the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA).

Ben has interests in injury prevention/performance enhancement for endurance athletes and using movement to enhance quality of life. After travels through Pennsylvania, Virginia, Kentucky, Georgia, Alabama and Florida for school and work he has been in the Pittsburgh area since 2004. Ben is an active contributor to his profession, with work on a variety of committees of the NSCA, as well as presentations and publications both nationally and internationally.

The idea for FitLabPGH came during a run with his dogs when he realized that there were a variety of national fitness and movement focused podcasts, but none limited exclusively to Pittsburgh people, business and activities.
