Alpine Start is a series of podcasts covering all topics related to alpine sport. In their latest episode, svexa's Director of Applied Sports Science Olof Hedberg is interviewed about his roles at SNSC and svexa.
"Olof has a tremendous breadth of knowledge on anything and everything from youth nordic coaching, to approaching development programs like businesses, to exercise intelligence and individualized training for high level athletes" says host and professional mountain athlete Grace Staberg.
As well as his role as Director of Applied Sports Science at svexa, Olof is Head Coach of the Summit Nordic Ski Team Colorado, Adventure Racing Champion, MBA, and former financial equity analyst. In this episode, Alpine Start discusses how his professional racing experience and MBA have allowed him to help grow SNSC tremendously in the past few years. They dive into developing high caliber, elite athletes with a focus on longevity and health. Olof shares his take on the ever present, “skiers are built in the summer” sentiment and how it relates to a system built upon training camps + post-grad programs. And they also get into the promising future of US nordic, and Olof's work in exercise analytics with us here at svexa.
