On this podcast I have Brandon Baltzley. Brandon is the owner of Brandon Baltzley Fitness & Nutrition, as well as a personal trainer and wellness coach at Planet Fitness, and the co-owner of The Buffalo Jump restaurant on Cape Cod with his wife. Brandon is also a chef with more than 20 years in the restaurant business, which he left for good at the beginning of the year. Battling substance abuse and obesity, Brandon decided that for the sake of both his mental and physical health, he would need to leave the restaurant business to lead a health lifestyle. Now that he’s seen some personal success with fitness and nutrition, he wants to help others with their goals, especially those in the hospitality business. Besides health and wellness, we also discuss turning his pop-up The Buffalo Jump into a brick and mortar restaurant, the state of the restaurant industry and what a post-Covid industry might look like.
