| | | PA Radio – Episode 191: John Welbourn

Author / John


What a year. The move to Texas, the birth of new PA programs like JACKHAMMER and Lean & Able, and of course the 2016 Power Athlete Symposium. This week John, Luke, and Tex broadcast from the new PAHQ…in a land that still uses dialup. If you think the biggest event of 2016 was the presidential election, you weren’t at the PA Symposium. Hear the highlights straight from a handful of grown men who held back tears listening to some of our guest speakers. And I can tell you first hand that the only other reason for crying at the event was hearing Huey Lewis’ “Power of Love” on repeat.

No episode of PA Radio is complete without stories from the road. Usually, they are Seminar recaps but this time, the guys entertain you with their Mad Max experience from California to Texas. And like a couple of townie tourists, they grapple with the recent discovery that Austin actually has hipsters. Shocker.

I know you want all the goodies coming out of PAHQ. That’s why you need to keep your eyes peeled THIS WEEKEND for the Power Athlete Academy link. And if you’re looking for the Symposium audio, you’re in luck. It’s my understanding that Luke will be distributing it out of the trunk of his Civic in the form of a mix CD. Follow his MySpace page to see if he’ll be coming to aWalmart parking lot near you.


As advertised, the Power Athlete Academy and Symposium content will be popping off this weekend. Check in at academy.powerathletehq for details on a seriously amazing educational program that will make you a more informed coach. It’s unbelievable the amount effort that has gone into creating this resource for knowledge.

    Just now catching up on my PARadio. I went to that same BBQ place (by CF Central) when I was in Austin for a conference a couple weeks ago. Still delicious.
