Strong By Design Podcast

Apr 24, 2019

Best-selling book author and renowned fitness and health expert Bruce Krahn joins the SBD podcast show.

High above the streets of San Diego, Bruce shares his lifelong passion for fitness with Coach Chris. What’s clear is that NOTHING was going to stop his quest to reach people and change their lives.

Over the past 25 years Bruce has seen a lot of changes in the fitness and health industry… in fact when he started in the 90’s, personal training wasn’t even a recognized career yet!! Bruce also gets candid about his grossest day at the gym (whew!) and silliest moments with his young twin sons.

Bruce’s mantra and approach to life has gifted him with an amazing support system in his wife and closest friends. He also clings to his Christian faith which grounds him and is his rock. Get inside the mind of a man who knows exactly what he wants in life and goes after it with passion, faith and confidence in himself.


"The impact it's (faith) had on my life has been profound because when those times hit, when times are really hard, when you're really struggling.. everything always falls back onto that.. when the seas get stormy you've got to have that rock to cling to.."

-Bruce Krahn
