Hosted by Michael Marinaro and Trennt Michaud. We take you through a bit of our lives and interests, in and out of the arena. This podcast will share with you different information and tips from high performance professionals we interview in each episode. Through our careers, we have had the honour of benefiting from the knowledge of many of our guests, and the topics that they have to present. We're hoping that you can use this information to become closer with high performance athletes and to do some experimenting in your own labs. Instagram: @icelabpodcast @trenntmichaud @marinarosauce1
Episode 24 with Chris Hill
This week we welcome our first, non figure skating related guest, Chris Hill. Chris is currently working as a high school golf coach in the United States. Chris is from Sarnia, Ontario and played for Wayne State before heading into his coaching career, where he has had major success at the grassroots all the way through NCAA, and high school golf. This is a great episode about coaching, and so many things to show how different sports can be so different yet so similar, and how you can take these practices into your daily life.

Episode 19 with Amber Glenn
This week on the podcast we’re joined by US National silver medalist and TikTok viral icon, Amber Glenn. Amber has such an inspiring journey filled with both triumph and adversity. She went from being at the top of her game at the junior level to quitting the sport altogether. When she returned to figure skating she became one of the few women in the world to master the triple axel and is currently vying for a spot on the 2022 US Olympic team. She became an inspiration to so many when she came out publicly as a queer woman and she tells us about how that freedom changed her skating. This is a fun and inspiring episode and we can’t wait for you to listen in!
