Why is this important?
Athletes spend much of their time focusing on athletic development and neglect their personal growth. Before we can focus on athletic development we need to concentrate on personal development. Search the internet and social media and you won’t find another podcast dedicated to the personal evolution of the athlete.
Who should listen?
