“It’s easy to talk about your beliefs, it’s easy to talk about faith, it’s easy to talk about your values but when you actually have to live it out then it becomes is it real or not?”
What’s up everybody and welcome the 65th episode of Outside The Rack brought to you by Kinetic Performance the makers of Gymaware. In this show we are going to try to dive a little deeper into the minds of the top practitioners in the world of sport performance to learn a bit more about who they actually are and how they got to where they are at today. Today we are joined by the University of Louisville’s Director of Sports Performance, Jason Dierking. Jason, thanks for being with us today.
Before we start, who is Jason Dierking?
Many things, to start with I’m a Christian and my faith is very important to me, a husband, a son, a brother. A while ago I would have said I’m a coach, but now I see that as what I do, not who I am.
1) Describe a learning situation that brought about an epiphany in your career
Doing the Iron Man Triathlon and using it as a fund raiser for spinal cord injured people. Committing to something bigger than himself taught him how much a purpose can drive you.
2) If you could ask one question and you know you would get the answer what would that be and why?
I don’t need to have all the answers, I trust my faith.
3) What’s your escape?
Physically it’s yard work, but reading is the one thing that I’ve started doing more of on topics outside our profession.
