EP090: “What I Learned From A Blind Athlete”
Manage episode 345955163 series 2878733
Today, I share the lesson I learned from working with Lex Gillette, a visually impaired sprinter, and long jumper.
Lex has a tremendous amount of trust in the people he works with and I wanted to share that same experience with my team at Sports Performance.
We recently joined Lex and Jerome Avery for a lesson on guide running, but more importantly, the importance of clear communication.
In this episode, I share five things I learned and will continue to implement with mentoring sports PTs moving forward. If you want to make sure you’re maximizing your potential as a sports PT, you need to tune into this episode. Enjoy!
