What is science? Maybe a better question to ask is “What ISN’T science?” In some conversations the term science seems to have changed or lost its meaning altogether. In this episode, I’m honored to be joined by two incredible guests, Doug Kechijian and Fergus Connolly.
Performance Coach and Business Advisor, Fergus Connollly and Physical Therapist, Strength Coach, and business owner at Resilient Performance Training Systems, Doug Kechijian. In this premier episode of The High Performance Hockey Podcast, we dive into sports science, critical thinking, and the blend of research, art, and science in the world of coaching. It’s not just hockey, and it’s not simply philosophy either. We’re having a true discussion about thought, biases, and science. In life, business, and sports. We are so glad you’re joining us for this first episode of the show. Please subscribe and follow us on social media to continue the conversation!
