I am so sorry to hear about Chad’s departure from TR.
I admire him as an athlete, coach ,deep dives into complex studies, and his sense of humour.
I will miss him on here, and feel disappointed that TR just made a very brief announcement about his departure.
There was no mention of all the hard work and dedication he gave to TR, to us, the coachees, and the fact that he was a valued team member who helped bring TR the success it has today.
It would be good to see some gratitude shown (by TR) for his contribution.
Meanwhile, I say goodbye ,thankyou, and all the best for your future happiness and fulfilment, Chad
Yeah, I liked Chad too. When people exit a company (or are exited from a company) there normally isn’t thousands of customers who associate the individual with the brand. In this case it feels more akin to a pro sports team losing a marquee player. Obviously there are reasons why things like this happen. Regardless I wish him the best too
If you have data from users on status with respect to stress and recovery and have enough data on what exercises elicit a certain response, writing completely automated yet optimized programs isn’t out of the question.
No info and according to the podcast it was not a voluntary departure. They won’t comment further. Its the intro of the podcast for the week if you want to see it
Really disappointed to hear Chad has left TR. He has been a real inspiration throughout his time on the podcast. Informative, knowledgeable, humble and great humour. He will be badly missed.
Good luck for the future Chad.
Oh wow, I’m two podcasts behind so I hadn’t heard yet. Sad to see him go. Obviously he was such a part of the success of both the podcast and TR itself. Wishing him the best on whatever adventure he takes on next.
they can’t even do trainnow correctly, i sometimes look at what it recommends, and on my own plan rest weeks, trainnow recommends sweet spot/threshold work after I had already done 3 weeks of interval work. So I’m not totally on board with AI really being able to create training without good human guidance
