This episode sees me speaking with lead strength & conditioning coach of GB snow board cross & alpine ski, John Noonan. I first got in touch with John through LinkedIn about 6 months ago and he was kind enough to give up half an hour of his time for a chat about his journey through various sports. I then saw him speak at the UKSCA conference this year and had to get him to speak on the podcast.

In this episode you will learn –

  • Who is John Noonan and how he got to where he is today
  • How experience can be transferred from traditional sports to John’s current role
  • How important it is to let guys ‘freestyle’ in training
  • With such an emphasis on freedom to express, how do you quantify training
  • How to create an ‘athletic competency evaluation’
  • What are the demands of the sport and how do they differ from other snow sports
  • John’s current research into demands of snow cross
