MOTM #022: Anthony Mucurio – How to Run Faster, Jump Higher, and Keep Young Athletes Healthy

Monday, June 18th, 2018

Brought on Anthony Mucurio, one of the top minds in the strength and conditioning world to pick his brain and talk shop. Admittedly, I might be a bit biased because Anthony is one of my best friends, but his passion for this material is undeniable, and his understanding of what it takes to be a truly good coach is unmatched. If you’re at all interested in human performance, this is an episode you’re going to want to listen to. I also announce a cool project that we’re working on and ask for some feedback from you. So tune in, let your voice be heard, and watch your wishes come true.

    PLEASE have a webinar about the bridge between rehab to Performace!
    Logistics of it, the “pass off”, communication between practionner/coach/client, exercises, anything !!
    Such an awesome episode

    1. Shanté Cofield says:

      That’s EXACTLY where my head was going with this. I think the hybrid model is awesome and it’s great when a PT has a solid strength and conditioning background/understanding, but, it’s impossible to do it all. Definitely a nice paradigm when we can all work together. Thanks so much for the feedback and stay tuned for that webinar!

  2. Jared says:

    DEFINITELY interested in this webinar. Dream job would be creating a business that combines these two worlds.
    I also would love some tips on what to look for in a performance coach and what to look for in a performance coach to partner with in a business!

    1. Shanté Cofield says:

      Absolutely! And that’s an awesome question/topic to further tease out. Please don’t hesitate to hit me up with any other suggestions you may have!
