Whether it is a food, drink or exercise, trying a new thing can be a little intimidating because, well, it’s different and unknown. What do you think it takes to coach athletes at the highest level of a sport? Does a coach need to have playing experience to help athletes in a particular sport succeed? Is it possible to make the change from coaching one sport to working with athletes from a completely different one and still achieve a high level of success? On that note, what does it take to be an effective coach, which is more important, technical knowledge of a sport or the ability to communicate movement?   Dr. Nick Winkelman, the Head of Athletic Performance and Science for the Irish Rugby Football Union is the guest on this episode of All About Fitness.
