“Us as performance professionals, strength and conditioning coaches, we need to take our ego out of it and be an ally and resource for our athletes and allow them to be the driver a bit.”
What’s up everybody and welcome the 93rd 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 Associate Director for Sports Performance at Old Dominion University, Eric Potter. Eric, thanks for being with us today.
Before we start, who is Eric Potter?
A person who got into training to improve as a baseball player. With that I’m a father and a husband who’s trying to make a positive impact on people’s health.
1) Describe a learning situation that brought about an epiphany in your career?
Seeing Bartolo Colon in spring training and seeing how skill trumps all taught me to be more of an ally and a resource.
2) If you could ask one question and you know you would get the answer what would that be and why?
If you viewed yourself as a business, would other people invest in it?
3) What’s your escape?
Spending time with my wife and daughter, cooking/training, and learning about new things outside of just training.
