A Little About Mike Mahony and the Strength Tips Podcast
Athletes spend a lot of time practicing their chosen sport. They spend time executing drills and learning plays to make themselves superior to other athletes in their sport. One place they need to be in order to get and maintain an edge is in the gym. Strength Tips is aimed at giving clear and concise tips on improving the time spent in the gym. By honing their gym time and improving their strength, hockey players and other athletes prepare themselves to dominate their opponents. While there is a lot of information about strength training available today on the internet, Mike Mahony says “I want to help people wade through the sea of misinformation and lead them directly to the reputable few.”
Mike Mahony has a passion for helping others achieve their health and wellness goals. For the past 10 years Mike has worked with athletes, bodybuilders, unhealthy men and women and helped them build a better physique and a healthier lifestyle.
