Training to Extremes

Over the next two weeks, I invite two colleagues on to the Zelos Podcast. They are experts in training for extreme sports. Christoph Wyss is the Strength & Conditioning Coach for Red Bull athletes. Red Bull sponsors over 200 sports ranging from E-gamers to formula one racers, to soccer stars to big wave surfers. We talk all about what it is like to work with such an extreme variety of athletes and what goes into designing complete conditioning programs for this cast population.

The following week I talk with Tamas Kelermen, Strength & Conditioning Coach for Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas. He trains the performers in three of the shows on the strip. He took me on a behind-the-scenes tour of the O Show. We talk a bit about that experience and a whole lot more.

In case you have been living in a cave for the past several years and you haven’t heard of the Zelos Podcast you don’t know what you’re missing. It is the show that’s all about the Pros behind the Pros. Every Monday at 9am (EST)/6am (PST) I have conversations with my colleagues in the world of professional and college sports. Top experts in the field of strength, rehab, mental performance, athletic training, etc. If you want to know a bit more about how your favorite athletes keep in peak performance in the NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA, MLS, and beyond, then this is a podcast you need to tune in on and subscribe. Over 130 episodes and growing.
