Episode 105brutestrength

  • LISTEN ON

This week on the Brute Strength Podcast, I interview my former teammate and the team captain to the Wasatch Brutes, Adrian Conway (@adrianconway_). On this episode we discuss how the team came to be, difficulties they experienced, what is the driving force behind their success and their mission to #stopthemayhem. We also dive into topics about coaching—his own experience as a coach over the years and what he has learned about athletes both in person and virtually. Adrian is a wealth of knowledge and an amazing leader, there is a lot of pearls of knowledge in this one. Enjoy the show!
