Joseph Morstad is a passionate fitness coach driven to help those with Inflammatory Bowel Disease feel, move, and perform better.

In 2008, Joseph was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and ended up losing 50lbs in just six weeks due to this condition. After his release from the hospital, he used his knowledge as a fitness coach to recover and rebuild his body. Within a few months he had regained all of his lost weight and became even stronger than before his diagnosis.

Joseph's first interview on the show was so inspiring, that we wanted to bring him back on to learn even more. In today's episode, we're going to be diving deeper into Joseph's condition, and drilling down on the exercises, movement practice, and any other techniques that allow him to to manage his ulcerative colitis. His mission is to help as many people as possible find their strength - inside and out, so regardless if you suffer from IBD or not, you're going to be able to take away some high quality, actionable info from this interview.
