CO-FACILITATOR & BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
NCSF certified personal trainer, HKC certified kettlebell instructor
Madison Granger wears a handful of hats at Coaching the Whole Athlete, from facilitating workshops, to supporting coach reflection one-on-one, to building business partnerships. She is passionate about using athletics as a tool to give people joy and help them succeed in all areas of their lives.
Like Brianna, Madison came to this work from her experiences as an athlete. While at Duke, she was fortunate to serve as a two-year captain for the Women’s Track and Field/XC team and climb the ranks to compete as a top miler in the ACC. She also had the honor of representing her peers across the ACC as a student-athlete Autonomy Representative. In her post-collegiate years, Madison has navigated chronic injuries, lived through ensuing identity crises, and gradually found her way back to having joy for her sport – all contributing to the understanding and empathy that she brings to her work with coaches and athletes.
Madison’s professional life has been shaped by her deep interests in health, culture, and the overall factors that fuel or inhibit sustainable high performance. These interests landed her first in the corporate wellness world, managing wellness programs for Fortune 500 companies. During her time as a human capital management consultant, Madison supported clients in designing performance management systems that empower and incentivize their employees towards desired behaviors and outcomes. This work helps her to see the systems and incentives at play within a team, within an athletic department, and within broader athletic organizations.
Finally, Madison is a coach. Her roles as both a personal trainer and a Girls on The Run coach gives her frequent opportunities to apply concepts from Coaching the Whole Athlete firsthand and grow towards being the transformational, holistic coach she aspires to be.
