Episode 42 with Dr. Tony Wolf: Thermoregulation, Vitamin D, and Heat Stress

In today’s episode, we speak with Dr. Tony Wolf about his research in thermoregulation and its relationship with skin pigmentation, vitamin D, and heat stress.

Dr. Wolf is an exercise physiologist and cycling coach. He earned his Ph.D. from the Pennsylvania State University, where he continues to conduct environmental and exercise physiology research as a postdoctoral scholar. He is the owner of ATP Coaching, where he coaches a wide range of cyclists from around the world.
