Pulling Back The Curtain with Luke Summers & Chris “Tex” McQuilkin of Power Athlete

Welcome back ladies and gentlemen to Uncharted Performance. We kick off season 9 by pulling back the curtain with Luke Summers & Chris “Tex” McQuilkin of Power Athlete. These two gentlemen are at the core of an immensely talented team led by John Welbourn dedicated to fighting mediocrity in the field of strength and conditioning and empowering your performance as an athlete and coach. Luke and Tex share their distinct journeys to Power Athlete highlighting their lightbulb moments when everything changed for them as coaches. We go deep and discuss the culture and vision at Power Athlete and the role that leadership, opportunity, autonomy, loyalty, taking ownership, continuing education, and innovation all play in creating an unparalleled platform for self discovery, development, and enlightenment. The conversation doesn’t stop there as the gents also introduce us to the concept of Ikigai and highlight the responsibility along with the influence we have as coaches on our athletes and communities.  No stone is left unturned, including who has a better head of hair and best things to do in Austin, Texas. Power Athlete is more than just strength and conditioning, it is what the world needs. Enjoy and make sure to tune in to Power Athlete Radio too!
