In this episode of the Decoding Excellence Show, I am again speaking with Coordinator of Performance Nutrition for the Philadelphia Eagles, Michael Minnis.
This was such a great episode and I walked away with several pages of notes from Michael. He shares many stories and lessons learned from his journey into the world of performance nutrition. Michael had stops at Kansas State University, EXOS, University of Oklahoma, University of Texas at Austin, University of Southern California, to his eventual and current role at the Philadelphia Eagles.
Michael and I discuss:
- The architecture of a Performance Nutrition program
- What Michael Learned as a S&C Coach
- Conscious Coaching within Performance Nutrition
- Hybrid roles between S&C and Nutrition
- Challenges between collegiate and professional sports
- Advice for future performance nutritionists
You can catch up with Michael on Twitter at @MMinnis89. You can also navigate to to his Instagram at @MMinnis89 and browse the many great resources he's posted.
