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.

Podcast #20-18 John McGough- Elevate Fusion Fitness



John McGough (in his own words):
“Hockey was my main sport growing up. I also wrestled for 1 year. I decided to start lifting weights in 10th grade and did that for many years and also go into taekwondo.  When I was 21, I decided to leave my job as a golf course management worker and go to school for fitness at NPTI in Cleveland.  I finished school and started working for Anytime Fitness, where I was a manager/trainer for 8 years before teaming up with a few others to open Elevate Fusion Fitness in Lawrenceville.  In my free time, I mountain bike with friends and play in a band.”

Podcast #18-18 Bend the Bridge- Erin Grace



Erin Grace (in her own words):
“I am a 200 hour registered yoga instructor and have been practicing yoga for 16 years.  I received my teacher training through Yoga Yoga in Austin, TX in 2007. Since then I have taught and practiced in Austin, Northern Virginia, and Pittsburgh.  I have a specialization in prenatal yoga, and love to teach a variety of styles here in Bridgeville, where I opened Bend the Bridge Yoga in July of 2016. Outside of being immersed in yoga (and loving every bit of it), I enjoy spending time with my husband, daughters and 2 dogs.  Yoga has played a significant role in guiding me through balancing self, family and work.  I am grateful to share that with others and teach what I love.”
