Head & Shoulders Above All Others

A brilliant podcast. Always well researched with fantastic interviews and Mikael himself is clearly very scientific in his approach to triathlon coaching and freely shares his knowledge. Top notch.

Great Informative Show

I have listened to lots of Podcasts over the years to do with Triathlon, as a former athlete who now lives and breaths all things Coaching I find this shoe to be a great source of information, with some excellent guests.

Currently busy working my way through the back catalogue.

Thanks for the hard work!

Comparing with other podcasts on similar topics, the host obviously works very hard behind the scene and his effort should be well appreciated. Merely look at the show note he prepared for each episode we can tell how much time he spent. I find the advices very useful and will make sure listening to every single one of them.
