#5 – Matt Nichol — High Level Athletics, Building Buy-In, and Pigeon Feathers in Sports Drinks

In this episode of the #CLP we sit down with former Toronto Maple Leafs strength coach and formulator of Biosteel Sports nutrition, Matt Nichol. Matt is a surrogate mentor to us and we have always admired his commitment to development and passion for his athletes in everything he does.We discuss Matt’s transition from football to hockey, how he became the head strength coach for the TML without ever applying, the challenges of building buy-in with high-level athletics and what inspired him to create Biosteel sports nutrition. We did this interview at his high-performance center and a few weights drop in the background for authenticity. 

#4 – Kate Beirness — Sickening Hard Work, Kobe Bryant Day, and Inspiring the Next Generation

 Grocery shopping excitement!!! Grocery shopping excitement!!!

In this episode of the #CLP we sit down with television sportscaster, speaker, fitness addict and all around rock star Kate Beirness! We were beyond thrilled to have Kate on the podcast and she absolutely crushed it. We discuss everything from her WNBA dream shattering ACL tears to unpaid work at Rogers TV to becoming co-anchor on the first ever female sportscaster team for the iconic TSN brand. Kate breaks down why you have to work sickeningly hard, often for free, to get what you want. Kate talks about how advice to go backward in her career turned out to be the best thing imaginable, why it’s important to be a strong female role model and her love for training. We cannot wait to have her back on the podcast, hot mics!
