Sleep expert Tom Coleman is the special guest for UR Podcast #009, ironically recorded on one of the hottest and sunniest days of the year.
Founder of My Nutrition Ireland, Tom’s background is in health science, with a specialisation in health, sleep and nutrition. From the word go, Tom brings the science to sleep. He’s had the opportunity to work with some exceptional technology deployed by the likes of the Seattle Seahawks (NFL) and Chicago Cubs (MLB). What would you do if you knew there were ways to predict and improving your reaction times, but also your fatigue?
Tom’s also been working over the past few years with leading international figures in the world of sport along with former two-weight UFC world champion, Conor McGregor. We get a little insight into the background to McGregor’s preparation for the Floyd Mayweather fight, trickling all the way down to tips and tricks for athletes young and old managing training, nutrition and sleep.
We’re all about work hard, train hard, play hard – but does anyone ever tell you sleep harder?
The timing of this chat is super. With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, a lot of us have experienced big changes in our lives, schedules and routines – especially sleep.
Over the course of 90 minutes, we talk about all things sleep for athletes, non-athletes, parents, teenagers and more. We go through the different sleep cycles we experience as soon as we drift off, what happens your mind, your body, your brain and the physical and mental benefits.
If you’ve been wondering how you can improve your own sleeping arrangements, Tom’s notes on sleep hygiene will come in real handy.
Grab your pen and paper, take your notes, then get yourself a good night’s sleep!
