In today's episode, Mike, joined by Ross Leppala, sits down to chat with new RTS coach Peter Lucey.
Peter was a recent hire of ours out of a pool of very highly qualified coaches and we're super excited to have him joining the coaching team here at RTS. Peter is also the head team coach for the Thailand powerlifting team.
In this episode, we talked with Peter, about coaching online versus coaching in person, a really interesting topic and a very important one to consider as an online coach.
There's a lot of advantages and disadvantages to both settings. Understanding what those advantages and disadvantages are for each setting can help the coach and their supportive efforts of the lifter strength journey.
Meet the new RTS Coach: Hayden Pritchard; PhD, International competitor, and veteran coach
New Zealander Hayden Pritchard has his PhD in Strength and Conditioning from AUT where his focus was on tapering strategies. He's competed twice himself at the IPF world level -- and coached lifters to those same championships. Lately he's been focusing on training and coaching Weightlifting, which has given him some unique perspective. He's very well rooted in the Exercise Science literature, but still understands that the most important thing is getting a result for the athlete.
You'll find Hayden to have a positive tone with a can-do attitude. His experience gives him great perspective when helping athletes make decisions.
