My words can NOT do justice to this conversation I am so humbled to have shared and experienced with Legendary Strength Coach, Johnny Parker.
This man is so humble and so genuine in his message, it was BEYOND REFRESHING to hear such a deep message on coaching.
I felt like I was speaking to the Father of Strength Coaches the way he spoke so eloquently on Coaching "Beyond Strength in the Weight Room".
I honestly felt connected to Johnny because I am always talking about & Coaching for "Strength Beyond".... TRUE Strength, is strength that is applied to life BEYOND athletics, BEYOND the weight room.
Let me tell you.....You will want to listen to this episode 2 or 3 times on the first day, it is THAT good.
I'm also digging into Johnny's new book that is blowing my mind. It is called, The System.
Here are just Some of the topics we chat about in STRONG Life Podcast Ep. 182:
- Genuinely caring for people
- Johnny's travels to Russia to learn from weightlifting & sports performance coaches in the early 80s!
