Welcome back to coaching soccer weekly presented by WORLD CLASS COACHING. I'm really excited for this episode today, I got to share part two of the interview from last week. And if you haven't listened to that, I really encourage you to go back and listen to it. JOHN has a lot of experience with top European clubs. And he shares part of that in our first episode, part one, Episode 273. And in this episode, he'll talk about some more experiences that he has. So it's gonna be a really, really good and entertaining episode
we're in lockdown, I'm not in coach mode as much. I'm more in player mode. Because if you've seen my YouTube videos, you'd know that I do the workout with the players. So I'm working out four times a week with the players for an hour long session. And I haven't been doing that type of training for many years. So my body is really starting to feel it. It's been, it's been an interesting journey. But I can tell you, I'm starting to get in shape And while I'm in pain a lot, it's also brought out a part of me which is getting the recovery part more into my sessions. And after the session is doing yoga and things like that using what I use, which is just peloton and they have some great content on there. And because I'm doing more yoga and stretching away from the session, it's actually made the stretching part of the session a lot more effective for the players and more informative. I know what I'm working on with the players and how to stretch that. And how to make the session just more effective from a holistic approach, not just a soccer approach, which I think has been really great.
Today's hot topic is something that happened in 2018. And for us in North America, we had no idea about it, it wasn't something that was advertised really well in North America or anything like that. It's called NIKE STRIKE NIGHT
I loved my conversation with him. It's always so great to speak to coaches who have had these amazing experiences in parts of the world where personally I would love to go and his experiences with these academies like Manchester United, and what he has seen something that I think we can all take something away from. So enjoy part two of my conversation with John Fisher.
A while ago, I came across a YouTube page that was really unique. The page had videotaped sessions from some of the top academies in European football with a easy organizing structure. So it really allowed someone like me who's in lockdown in Toronto to be able to watch some sessions from some of the top clubs in the world. So I reached out to the owner of that page, and he was kind enough to talk to me today where he will be discussing his unique experiences with some of the top European clubs in the world. I'm going to split this up into two parts. We ended up covering many different topics and by the of the interview, I really came out with so much more knowledge. hope you enjoy.
