In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Performance Enhancement Specialist and Author, Nick Grantham. I must admit, its taken me far too long to get Nick on the podcast. Nick did feature as a round table guest in a Special Football Edition of the podcast in episode #21 but it was great to get him on a podcast on his own. There are so many things I could have spoken to Nick about given his unbelievable experience but I decided on S&C for youth athletes and something that Nick has been very vocal about over the last 5 years and thats getting a job in S&C. Hopefully this will lead to a part 2 to discuss everything else. Enjoy.
