    EP 104: Howard Green - Tennis Fit

    Tennis Fit
    Howard Green (@HGreenTennisFit) is a strength and conditioning coach working in tennis. He coordinates the sports science and medicine team at Bolton Arena International Tennis Academy and works privately with many up and coming and elite players, including Ana Ivanovic.
    Prior to his work in sport, Howard was a Commando in the Royal Marines. After completing his basic training just out of school, the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Centre happened and changed the world. Howard went on to complete tours of Iraq and Afghanistan over a space of six years that left him burnt out and suffering from PTSD.
    This is Howard's story.

    EP 101: Daniel Greenwood - Using Science to Help People

    EP 101: Daniel Greenwood - Using Science to Help People

    Using Science to Help People
    Daniel Greenwood (@DanielGreenw00d) is a scientist.
    He spends his days with athletes, coaches and other service providers solving interesting problems in sport.
    Dan started his sport science journey in Sydney as an undergraduate student. After earning his degree he moved to Canberra to complete postgraduate study at the Australian Institute of Sport. Next, Dan broadened his horizon with a job in Singapore at the Sports Council. Studying towards a PhD came next, as well as a role at the Queensland Academy of Sport. He then moved back to Canberra to take the position of Senior Skill Acquisition Scientist. Today, Dan Directs the Human Performance Centre at the University of Memphis.
    This is the story of Dan's quest to be the best scientist he can be. It's also about how he uses science to help people.
    I love the way Dan thinks and how he pushes past what's normal to get to the important.
    If you like to live outside the box a little, you're going to love this conversation.
