In this episode of the Mind Set Game podcast, I sat down with Greg Whyte who is currently a Professor of Applied Sport and Exercise Science at Liverpool John Moores University and Director of Performance at the Centre for Health and Human Performance in London.
Greg’s former roles include Director of Research for the British Olympic Association (BOA) and Director of Science & Research for the English Institute of Sport (EIS).
He is more well-known in the UK for his involvement in Comic/Sports Relief, since 2006 Greg has applied his sports science work to assist various celebrities in completing some of the toughest challenges.
In This Episode We Discuss:
- Does the fitness industry fit an exercise to the person or the other way around?
- How the fitness industry sees its members (my view not Greg’s) and Greg’s response
- There are still people that think they achieve things by themselves
- Physical activity is a spectrum
- Boundaries are put upon ourselves
- Is beetroot juice beneficial for endurance exercise?
- Is carb loading necessary for 5/10km?
