Season 1, Episode 2 – Guest: Lisa Druxman

Lisa Druxman is an expert in the business of fitness.  She was my manager when I worked at the Sporting Club in San Diego for 3 years.  She is, hands down, the best boss I’ve ever worked for.  Lisa is also great fun!  So I know that you’ll not only be entertained, but you’ll learn a lot from my interview with my good friend Lisa Druxman.   I hope you enjoy The John Garey Show, Season 1, Episode 2.
