In this episode I catch up with Tom Barry, Chief Operations Officer at Westside Barbell in Columbus Ohio. After graduating from WIT, Tom headed off full off innocence and enthusiasm to start an internship at the infamous Westside Barbell under the tuition of its equally notorious owner, Louis Simmons. 10 years on and Tom has forged out a very successful career for himself in the world of strength & conditioning and he is now considered Louis’s right hand man. What was it like walking into Westside all those years ago? How did he turn an internship into a career? How can it pay to be the dumbest person in the room? What are the soft skills you need to succeed in the hard world of Westside?
