A few weeks ago I had an opportunity to do a video interview with Ron McKeefery for his show “Iron Game Chalk Talk”.
Ron just posted the interview today, so I wanted to share it with you. In the interview, we talked about:

As you’ll hear from the video (and recall from: Strength and Conditioning Internship & The Intern Ascension), I think internships, volunteering, and/or being a part of quality mentorship opportunities are absolutely essential to success in any industry, but especially strength and conditioning. Simply, it’s these experiences in addition to the quality of ongoing mentors you maintain that will dictate how you view the training and coaching process. With this in mind, I’m extremely excited to announce our new Performance Training Mentorship program at Endeavor.
I created the mentorship program after getting a lot of feedback from people that had a very strong interest in completing an internship with us, but simply couldn’t afford to spend 3 months volunteering there time. The mentorship is a 5-day opportunity to get a complete behind-the-scenes look at how we train our athletes, including the assessment process, how this influences our program design, and how we teach/coach the athletes. As you know, our system is constantly evolving, so this is an opportunity to learn exactly what we’re doing now! The first mentorship will run June 9th-13th, a time where we’re packed with off-season hockey players. If you’re interested in more information (including potentially scheduling a mentorship opportunity during a different week), check out the link below!
If you have any questions, either about the topics covered in the video above or about our new mentorship program, please post them in the comments section below!
