Steve Kamb of Nerd Fitness shares how and why to embrace your inner mutant.

Episode 366: Are You a Mutant? Embrace It by Steve Kamb of Nerd Fitness (Like Mark Bell's PowerCast by Mark Bell with Jim McDonald).

It wasn’t until he graduated college and learned the right way to train that he started to see positive changes.
He's a nerd, but likes fitness… so why not combine the two and turn life into one giant video game?
