Dr. and Coach Josh “Nellie” Nelson is the Assistant AD, Applied Health and Performance Science at Penn State University where he’s doing the definition of this podcast – bringing the research to the reps. In his role, he’s unattached to another department within athletics so he and his staff are in a unique position of educating athletes, coaches and administration alike. With the aim of guiding all involved to data driven increased performance, the focus is on relationship building, trust, and collaboration.
