Win Your Life Podcast Episode 3 - The Psychology of Performance & Recovery with Dr. Jhon Wlaschin

Episode 3,  Jun 21, 2020, 03:55 AM

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, I sat down for a conversation with University of St. Thomas Psychology Professor Dr. Jhon Wlaschin. Jhon and I share a passion for data, fitness, and performance. I wanted to get Jhon's perspective on these topics as a Professor of Psychology. We also discuss Jhon's own journey with health and fitness, including his heart surgery and passion for the sport of squash.
