On this weeks On Coaching Podcast with Magness & Marcus, we have a special treat for you. We’re bringing you a real conversation.

When we were at the US championships, Jon and I sat down at a local coffee shop in Sacramento and pushed record. We recorded a real conversation, nothing manufactured or artificial, no defined topics, just a meandering conversation on coaching, reading, learning, and more. This is a behind the scenes, natural and flowing conversation where you get an inside look at coaching at it’s most basic level.

Thank you for listening and please check out my new book Peak Performance. The success of Peak Performance allows us to continually bring free content, like this podcast and website, to you!
