Episode 17 of the Performance Concepts Chat features Charlie Weingroff. We spend a good portion of the episode discussing Charlie’s new DVD Project T=R3 and how he goes into great detail about his comprehensive approach to all things related to performance, recovery, rehabilitation, personal growth and making athletes better. Our conversation is not so much about specifics and tools, but more along the lines of a philosophical discussion on how to help people and solve problems. Charlie touches on the passion he has for connecting with his audience and creating an environment for discussion, debate and growth. And, even though Charlie acknowledges that he may have detractors from time to time, he embraces those challenges and turns them into positive outcomes for both his clients and himself. One thing that you will take away from this interview with Charlie is that he is not happy with the status quo and is always pushing himself to find more effective ways to make people better. And, in many ways, this attitude guides his approach to sport and life.
