Welcome back everyone to Episode 44.

In this episode i had a chance to sit down with a brilliant up ad coming young coach Michael Day . 

Michael has had a very interesting path to his current position and knows only too well the ups and downs that come with being a high level sportsman.  

Originally hailing from the island of Inishbofin , Michael progressed through the Playing ranks with Galway all the way to gaining a senior call up until he was hampered by a very challenging injury. 

During his time away from playing he continued to follow his passion for Nutrition and completed a Masters in Human Nutrition in Ulster University Coleraine.

Having gained valuable experience both in a sport performance and clinical setting he is now working alongside Dr. Maeve Gacquin in providing Performance Nutrition services to a number of the Galway inter-county teams including the senior hurling team as well as a number of clubs round the county. 

 

 *** 

 In this episode we got to chat about some of the following topics :

-His background

- Major influences in his Coaching philosophy

- Essential areas that players can focus on to improve their performance via their nutrition 

 
- The value of a disciplined health oriented approach to injury rehabilitation

- Areas that we as coaches can improve on when dealing with non-elite players.

 
- Important areas that should be considered when implementing a nutrition program with either an individual or a team and the differences. 

- And lots more!!
