HMMR Podcast Episode 157: The art of coaching

Most of our episodes cover topics like training methods, periodization, and sports science. This is just one side of coaching. Good coaches know their sport, but they do more than that. Making the right decision and then communicating it effectively can become an art. On this episode of the podcast we focus on the art of coaching and share some anecdotes from some of our mentors about how they mastered the art of coaching.
