Elliott Hulse – The Body Is The Mind

Elliott Hulse is a powerhouse of thought and passion. Through YouTube, Elliott has established himself as a legendary strength coach and moved millions of people to find direction, whether it be in business, through starting meditation or just by getting them off the couch to train and take action.
