Performance intelligence research, industry innovation and leaving pro sport with Martin Buchheit & Stephen Smith (Head of Performance Research CEO/Founder at Kitman Labs)
In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Head of Performance Research at Kitman Labs, Martin Buchheit and CEO at Kitman Labs, Stephen Smith. I think I say this every week but this episode is slightly different. Kitman Labs recently embarked on a project to survey practitioners in the industry around what they want from research. Their aim is the partner with the industry to help answer the questions which are going to help coaches in their daily practice. It is fascinating where this project can go and I will look forward to catch up with these guys again through 2021.
