The Sports Science & Recovery Podcast is an interview-style podcast hosted by Justin Roethlingshoefer, the Founder and Chief Performance Officer at Own It.
Editor’s Note: Since publishing this podcast, Coach Joe Meloni was fortunate to accept a new role as Head Strength Coach for USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program.
In today's episode, I'm excited to be joined by Joe Meloni, the Director of Sports Performance for the AAA hockey program Windy City Storm.
As any coach who works with elite athletes ages 15-22 knows, buy-in comes from showing athletes that you care, and that you can help them. And, it’s about helping them as people first, and athletes second.
During the conversation, Justin and Coach Meloni breakdown Meloni's holistic athlete development model that takes the complete athlete into consideration when it comes to performance improvements.
He also gives an inside look into how he created a culture where sleep quality and recovery are prioritized and competed for just as much as sprint times and one-rep maxes.
