Ron McKeefery [@rmckeefery] part DEUX! If you missed him the first time, tune in this week to hear him drop knowledge from his years of experience at the Collegiate and Professional level. For being named Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coach of the year TWICE, Ron's approach is simple and highly effective. His advice ranges from the complexities of selecting the right coaches to hire to surviving as an intern. Surviving can eventually translate to thriving if you recognize your role at every stage of the game.
Coach McKeefery has recently become the Vice President of Performance and Education of PLAE. Not only that, he's kicking off a clinic series which he discusses in detail on today's show. His book "CEO Strength Coach" is a great stepping stone to surviving the S&C struggle and getting to know what it took to make Coach Ron McKeefery the success you see today.
"Shut your mouth, open your ears, then ask a million questions and you end up getting to a point where you might actually have an original thought."
