Get to know Chelsey Haardt
Emily C Asks:
I was listening to the live podcast where a question was submitted about how to deal with difficult parents when coaching. Any suggestion(s) on what to do about difficult head coaches? I’m an assistant swimming coach at a local high school and was hired, in part, to head up the dryland (strength training) program. To start this season off, I was only given roughly 15 minutes to get some strength training in. I went to the coach, told him I needed more time, and he basically ignored my request. Since then, our dryland program has been nonexistent. I’ve tried multiple sit downs with him but he still doesn’t get it. I’ve reached my limit on how much I can handle and am seriously questioning if I want to come back next season. Not sure if any of you have had to deal with something like this but any suggestions are much appreciated!
Steve B Asks:
Hey PA Radio,
I spent some time reading back through the TTMJ posts from years ago and ran across the Course Syllabus (July, 15th 2010), which suggested some books on training and nutrition. Are there any additional books you would recommend since then, and more specifically, any recommendations for books on becoming a better coach?
Ashley P Asks:
Will PAHQ/CFFB have a spread sheet up this year for anyone who will be competing in the games to see where we stand against others who follow the site regularly?
Bryon B Asks:
Can you talk about training with injury? I have a significant shoulder injury but still want to train as much as possible. Any advice on how to work around the shoulder? right now most movements involving the shoulder or holding significant load is out.
A strength and conditioning coach since 2009, Cali has worked with numerous athletes spanning from rugby players to cross country skiers. Almost immediately after finding CrossFit in 2010, she was introduced to a program that better suited her athletic goals. With her existing background in powerlifting and football, she became a natural devotee to CFFB/PowerAthlete and testament to it's effectiveness. In 2012, she left D.C. and headed for the state named after her to be a part of the CrossFit Football Seminar Staff and a Jedi of Power Athlete HQ. Cali currently resides in Seattle where she works full time in law enforcement.
