Today I’m joined by Ed Buckley. 


Ed is  the Chairman and CEO of Peerfit. 


In today’s episode, I talked with Ed about pioneering the concept of “fully-funded fitness”, building the billion-dollar bridge between fitness and healthcare, and what the significance of the name, “Peerfit”. 


I had a great time chatting with Ed and I hope you enjoy listening. 


Let’s get into it.
