In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Research Scientist at Orreco, Dr. Georgie Bruinvels. I am absolutely delighted to get Georgie on the podcast. I did a short interview with Georgie for the PlayerMaker webinar a number of weeks ago which was fantastic so the first thing I did was text her to get her on the podcast. We dived into some really interesting topics around coaching the female athlete and these are topics that need sharing and often demystifying.

If you enjoyed this episode with Georgie, you may enjoy my podcast with Dawn Scott.
