“You’re value has nothing attached to the badge that you wear on your shirt, but it’s how you are and what you do as a person that matters the most.”
What’s up everybody and welcome the 9th 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 Sportland Training and Fitness’s Sam Portland. Sam, thanks for being with us.
Before we start, who is Sam Portland?
He’s not really an academic, he’s a doer who grew up building things and playing sports.
1) Describe a learning situation that brought about an epiphany in your career
Stepping away from one position and being let go from a second made him look deep into how he wanted to be as a coach and a person.
2) If you could ask one questions and you know you would get the answer what would that be and why?
“I’d be asking the question of myself, is Sam Portland putting the right things in place to become the man he wants to be?”
3) What’s your escape?
I like being out in nature to escape the noise, and competing because all you can do then is react.
We are hoping to provide the best possible content for strength coaches with each of our shows. If feel this could provide value for anyone else in the strength and conditioning field please feel free to share.
