In On The Conversation: Ian McKeown

Welcome to a new series we’re calling “In on the Conversation.” Does that title need explaining? You need a little more? Okay. Here you go:

The Ready State is tip of the mobility spear, and as such we find ourselves working with and alongside some remarkable coaches and their athletes. The exchange of information is two-way and the coaching insights are too numerous to count. Oftentimes we’ll incorporate our learnings into some of the programming we include for our Virtual Mobility Coach subscribers, or the programming for our athletes in the gym.

We thought you might enjoy a seat at the table for some of the conversation, and so here we are.

First up: Ian McKeown, Head of High Performance at Port Adelaide Football Club. He’s working in what he calls the ultimate sport, with 6’6”, 250+ pound athletes regularly running as much as 10 miles per game…not to mention all the other athletic-y things required of the sport.

We talked the mistakes of our younger selves, how to build adaptive athletes, biggest changes over the past 10 years in sports performance, and much more.

Dig in.
