“I would challenge people, if they see things as an escape, I think you should be asking yourself, ‘how am I doing with the harmony in my life? Why do I need an escape?’.”
What’s up everybody and welcome the 27th 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 of Athletics for Sports Medicine and Director of Integrated Performance at the University of Illinois, Randy Ballard. Randy, thanks for being with us.
Before we start, who is Randy Ballard?
I’m a believer, a father, a son, and a husband. Professionally, I’m a “pot of chili”.
1) Describe a learning situation that brought about an epiphany in your career
We can learn from a lot of different places, and we have to strive for a harmony in the blending of our life.
2) If you could ask one question and you know you would get the answer what would that be and why?
How do we make more resilient young people?
3) What’s your escape?
Nature, camping, hiking, and spending time with my kids out doors.
