Get Up Nation®! My name is Ben Biddick. I’m the Creator and Host of the Get Up Nation® Show and Co-Author of Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with former Major League Baseball player Adam Greenberg. Recently I had the honor and privilege of speaking with Rachel Balkovec. Rachel is a minor league hitting coach for the New York Yankees and has worked in professional baseball for 7 years. She is the first woman to be a full-time strength and conditioning coach and also the first woman to be a full-time hitting coach in the history of professional baseball. She’s also the host of the Theta Wave Podcast and along with Jen Widerstrom provides Female Executive Mentorships for up and coming women in every industry. Rachel is a highly sought after speaker and mentor. I am honored to have the chance to share her brilliance and insight into resilience with Get Up Nation®. Rachel, welcome to the show!
