Show Notes

*SHOW TIMESTAMPS FEATURED AT THE END*

In this episode, Gerry welcomes on Pratik Patel. Pratik has spent multiple years with high level college and professional organizations and also has a background in nutrition AND training.

To begin, Pratik talks a little about job security with companies or organizations vs. what you can expect in a private sector type environment. He then discusses his experience with his last job with the New York Football Giants and the type of work it took to effectively communicate with all areas of the sports performance model for an NFL organization.

From there, the conversation turns to areas such as the differences between being a good programmer vs. actually leading and implementing a program. The conversation then finishes with player buy-in, how you can ensure you bring something unique and valuable to the table as an S&C professional and much, much more.

All that and more on this episode of Muscles and Management!
