Pacey Performance Podcast #201 - Kevin Carr (Coach & Manager at Mike Boyle Strength & Conditioning and Owner of Movement as Medicine)
In this podcast I am speaking to Coach & Manager at Mike Boyle Strength & Conditioning and Owner of Movement as Medicine, Kevin Carr. I really enjoyed this episode with Kevin as it built nicely on the back of the previous episode where I was interviewed by Brett Bartholomew. A lot of what Kevin and I discussed was like music to my ears as I think it's essential to hear of how a strength coach like him has built a really successful business and has diversified so well. As well as all the business development chat, there is also plenty of talk in there about how Kevin coaches a huge variety of populations and how his language, demonstrations and education differs. Enjoy.
