Legends on Deck Podcast, Episode 19: Movement Matters with Ricky Stanzi of GOATA

Have you ever wondered why some players have long careers and seems to have a limited number of injuries?  Could it have something to do with the way they move and train?

Ricky Stanzi is the Co-Owner and Director of Education for GOATA.  Stanzi grew up in northeast Ohio and went on to play quarterback at the University of Iowa.  During his tenure at Iowa, the Hawkeyes went 26-9 and he led them to a victory in the Orange Bowl.  In 2011, Stanzi was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs and would spend his next seven years playing in both the NFL and CFL (Canadian Football League).

As his playing days came to a close, Stanzi began researching ways in which athletes could better take advantage of natural movement to gain a competitive advantage.  This is when he discovered the GOATA method.  Since this time, he has been deeply involved in bringing the GOATA approach to athletes of all types.

Ricky sat down with David and Brian to discuss the GOATA approach and how it applies to the game of baseball.
