Rick Cox is the Head Athletic Trainer and strength coach at Suffolk University. Rick has held this role at a couple different locations and settings and has used it to his advantage to help care for student-athletes.
In this episode we dig into how the two roles compliment each other and how Rick uses his time in the weight room to not only help train the athletes and help them achieve their goals in there and on the field but to build relationships to continue to establish trust with the student-athletes. Rick highlights a lot of unique and useful insights that can be applied to athletic training even if you aren’t a strength coach as well.
This was a great episode that talks about the importance of relationships with student-athletes/patients and how overall development is so important for athletes.
