“What exactly did I learn today?”
If you’ve ever asked yourself that question after a long PT exam study day and had a hard time answering, Dr. Kalyn Anderle, DPT, understands.
“I would wake up and study all day,” says Dr. Anderle. “I would take breaks for lunch, supper, maybe a workout, and then I would look back at the end of the night and be like, ‘Okay, what did I study today?’ A lot of days I couldn’t answer, and that was so frustrating.”
But Dr. Anderle turned things around with the help of The PT Hustle. Here are 5 key takeaways from her time working to pass the PT Exam with Dr. Kyle Rice, better known as “Coach K.”
5 Questions with Dr. Kalyn Anderle, DPT
1. What was your experience like in the Coaching Program?
It was awesome. I didn’t feel like I was killing myself like I was before because I was getting so much out of it.
I would study for 2 to 3 hours on some days, and I would be able to explain and teach what I learned to everyone I talked to — my husband, my accountability partner Megan, my classmates in PT school. I was able to teach them what I was learning. That’s when I knew this course was different.
2. What was one game changer you learned during PT exam prep with The PT Hustle?
Efficiency! It’s not about how much you study; It’s about understanding what you know well and not worrying about what you don’t know.
That had been a struggle for me through this whole process. I had to remind myself, ‘What I know, I know very well,’ and I can figure out the rest. That’s how you succeed.
3. What was it like working with Coach K to pass the PT exam?
Amazing. I could text him any time and he would always have something positive to say.
Honestly, I feel like I was meant to be in this program just because of him.
4. What’s the biggest thing you learned from Coach K while preparing for the PT Exam?
Kyle changed my life, not only with how to take a standardized exam, but with a mindset change.
It’s something that’s going to help you with this test, but also when you’re working with your patients, and later on in life with your kids. The mindset change is the biggest thing I’ve learned from him.
5. Was the Coaching Program worth the investment?
Absolutely. I would probably pay double the price and still be in this class.
Honestly, it was worth it just for the people you meet — and for Kyle himself. I just had that very close connection with Kyle, and I feel like he probably has that close connection with every single person in the class
He always makes you think you are his top priority — always. And that feeling is awesome.
