In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Performance Coach Consultant, Shayne Murphy. This episode is absolutely incredible! Case studies, reflections, challenging his own thoughts and beliefs, it had the lot. Shayne has a really interesting story, coming over from Ireland to go onto work at one of the biggest clubs in the world and then leaving just 18 months ago to be a full-time consultant. We cover developing quality movement in footballers, the transition from full-time employee to consultant as well as changing the way he think about rehab, and much more.
