The coaching never ends.


On a mission to be the best coach you can be? You won’t want to miss this week’s episode  with Ron McKeefery [@rmckeefery]. This S&C coach has been with top universities and pro teams, drinking in the experience of several lifetimes along the way. Coach Mac delivers insight on how to manage the team from all aspects of performance as well as how to put together staffing that makes.

Ron has loads of valuable information to pass along including how to manage the sport coach/S&C coach relationship, what to do when your diva athlete doesn’t “like” to train, and how to appeal to the varying personalities that comprise a team.

We are proud to feature a coach who believes in building a program based on principles versus philosophies. Where philosophies may by nature rule out other schools of thought, solid principles can be combined in any fashion to create an effective program for a given athletes.
