Win Your Life Podcast Episode 2 -- Catalyst Athletics Athlete & TPHMN Performance Coach Caitlin Schad -- Universal Prescriptions, Training, Breathwork & Meditation

Episode 2,  May 21, 2020, 01:06 PM

The goal of The Win Your Life Podcast is to illuminate the intersection between prevention and performance. The fitness industry is focused on performance and not always concerned with prevention. On the other hand, our health care system is focused, by necessity, on combatting the overwhelming amount of disease, illness and injury in our society. At the intersection of prevention and performance, there is a group of coaches, medical professionals, business leaders, athletes, and thought leaders that are working to help you Win Your Life.

In this series, we are addressing the idea of 'Universal Prescriptions', the notion that there is a best way for us all to exercise, eat, sleep, breath and live. 

In this episode, Catalyst Athletics Athlete & TPHMN Performance Coach Caitlin Schad tells her story of making the Catalyst Team and tells us how her breathing and meditation practice has helped her in her sport. Caitlin explains why her approach to training, breathwork and meditation is not a one-size-fits all approach and how this has influenced her coaching.
