Mastering Performance, Nutrition, and Recovery with Gary Roberts #374


If you’re a fan of professional hockey, you’re likely familiar with the legendary Gary Roberts. With a career spanning over 20 years, including a Stanley Cup win, Gary’s journey is nothing short of remarkable.

After sustaining a severe injury and retiring, Roberts came back to play for 11 seasons – not only at a high level, but at maybe THE highest level he had ever played in his entire life.

But his story doesn’t end there.

In today’s episode, I sat down with Gary to delve into his transition from player to coach, where he’s been shaping incredible talents like Conor McDavid, widely regarded as the greatest hockey player today.

Gary shares invaluable insights into harnessing McDavid and other young players’ phenomenal abilities, and discusses the methodologies that have led to his own sustained success, even in his fifties.

What makes this episode truly special is that we recorded it live in Gary’s home, right in his personal gym. Being welcomed into his family’s space and witnessing where he hones his craft every day was a true privilege.

Whether you’re a high achieving athlete, a dedicated coach, or someone looking for inspiration and valuable insights into high-performance training and coaching, don’t miss this one!
