SEASON -2 THE COACHES
The second season of the podcast was THE COACHES and I had coaches from almost every level of competition come on. From wrestling to boxing to powerlifting to football, there were speakers from all areas of the sporting landscape this season. Each one provided their backgrounds and stories and gave lessons they’ve used to reach their goals. The conversations this season were all powerful and enriching and, for this week’s episode, I’ve highlighted some of my favorite takeaways from each of the first five episodes. You’ll hear from longtime boxing trainer Tom Yankello, former collegiate football coach Rick Neuheisel, one of the most respected strength and conditioning coaches in the world, John Philbin, University of Maryland head wrestling coach Alex Clemsen, and the greatest powerlifter of all time, Ed Coan, about their mentalities, philosophies and how you can use them to improve in your daily life. Let’s revisit some of THE COACHES.
