A Pure Gymnast's Perspective On Owning Your Movement w/ Travis Ewart

Travis Ewart, Invictus Gymnastics Coach, joins us today for a pretty entertaining conversation. He is a USA Gymnastics Coaching professional who has worked with 4-year-olds all the way to top Games Athletes. The perspective you're about to hear is so unique because it's coming from a pure gymnast.
