    One of the aspects of coaching and teaching that is difficult to convey is the sheer volume of behind the scenes collaboration, note swapping, advice, and discussion in which coaches regularly engage with each other.

The problem of course is that nearly every S&C coach I run into is very savvy about building brutally strong people, but pretty clueless about building well conditioned people at the same time.
