Happy New Year! We hope you had an amazing holiday and we are stoked to kick off the 2018 podcast season with an amazing guest who brings a nearly unmatched energy to every conversation. Former Olympian turned High-Performance coach and Nike Master Trainer, Martin Reader was kind enough to sit down with us and share his incredible story. A kid from Comox, who lived in Brazil for a chance to play in London and wear the red maple leaf. Martin has transitioned from professional athlete to coach and public speaker and has now turned his passion into youth sport and development. We hope you enjoy the podcast! Please rate and review!
