Episode 48- Nick Cross- Rehab vs. Performance in the Distance Runner!

Play
Read more
A couple of weeks ago I caught up with Nick Cross; Aths Aus Physio and Director of MelbourneCBD Physio again and I was rapt with our chat!

‘The topic was; ‘Rehab versus Performance’

It’s certainly a topic that is close to my heart. So often I see runners while they are in pain and we rehabilitate together back out of pain. Once the pain goes away however, time and time again I see runners stop their exercise regime. I get it, it’s human nature.

....but if I was to say sadly more often than not I see this runner down the track with an exacerbation of that same injury again, is this really the right approach?

Is an injury ever fixed? Or is it just well maintained?

Should runners transition more to a performance/goal orientated mindset? What are some advantages in thinking this way? Is there a certain time and place when the whole idea of rehab and focusing on pain can be self limiting?

Episode 44- Nick Cross- The benefits of the ‘Team approach’ to running success!

Today we are joined by Nick Cross, the director of Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy. Nick's experience professionally is extensive. He trained originally as a sports scientist, completing undergraduate and postgraduate studies in Exercise Physiology. He then went on to complete a Doctorate of Physiotherapy at the University of Melbourne. Upon graduating Nick has worked in Sports Medicine clinics for many years whilst remaining involved in professional sport. He is about to graduate from a Masters in Sports Physiotherapy and has recently embarked on the world of sports physiotherapy Research.

Those who love running often run themselves, and it is no surprise that Nick is no different. Nick has won two Stawell 400m races himself, one of them a backbarkers. Nick still continues to train and compete, but has now found he receives just as much enjoyment from helping other runners succeed!

Over the past month or so, Nick and I have collaborated together and worked out several podcast topics we as keen running physiotherapists, really want to talk about. Today we talk about the strong relationship between those runners that surround themselves with ‘Supportive/cohesive ‘Teams’ of people and Running success’. We detail:
- The recommended ‘team’ for running on all levels: be it professional, semi-elite to the recreational athlete.
- The team members involved and their roles in that space.
- And we touch on our professional experience in “successful Running teams” across all levels.

Nick Cross On The Chris Top Program

It’s a story we have all heard before. An aspiring musician moves to Nashville, with $200 in his pocket, a truck full of clothes and a big dream. Well, Nick Cross’s story may have started out like many, but it sure will not end up like most.
Within two hours of arriving on Broadway, he was already on stage at Tootsie’s World Famous Orchid Lounge. Within two days he became an official Tootsies performing artist, and within three weeks he had broken attendance records and pulled in more tips than most musicians had ever seen in one night. Pretty impressive for a small town boy from Indiana.
Nick was born and raised in Lawrenceville, Illinois and later moved to Ft. Wayne, Indiana. He grew up in a small town, “4900 people is what it says on the sign, but I think they was countin’ cats and dogs too.” As far back as age 2 his mother recalls Nick having a passion for music. His father had a country band called The Ghostriders, and numerous cousins and uncles played music as well.
“When you go to a family reunion, it’s like 100 freakin’ guitars. I come from a big musical family”.
As a little boy, Nick remembers going to his dad’s band practice and fooling around with their equipment and instruments. By age six he had played his first beat. It was a back beat on the drums to “Honkey Tonk Women” by the Rolling Stones. That’s when he recalls he got his music bug. From then on, Nick would steal his moms Tupperware bowls and bang on her pots and pans. The following year for Christmas, Nick’s parents surprised him with his very own drum set and a note that said, “Stay out of your mom’s Tupperware.” He then went on to pick up the guitar, but was primarily a drummer until about age 12. By age 17 he was playing twelve instruments and winning talent competitions, but that wasn’t enough for Nick Cross. He wanted to be a singer
“I remember praying to God one day going down the road in my truck and I was like, ‘I would give up every instrument I could play, if I could only sing’, and then it just hit me like an epiphany. God or my conscience or whatever told me, ‘listen, you didn’t learn how to play drums overnight. You didn’t learn how to play guitar overnight. You had to work at it and the same thing is gonna be that way for singin..You’re gonna have to work at it.”
Nick got his first paying gig as a singer at age 18 and started his first band as the front man. Since then, his experience as a musician has led him to songwriting and he can now play over 18 instruments.
Undoubtedly talented, Nick’s growing success isn’t solely attributed to his singing or instrumental skills. Nick is an entertainer.
“You have a lot of power when you’re on stage. You can make them people sad, you can remind them of a lost loved one, you can fire ‘em up to where they are ready to fight...” “...Someone that’s never danced, never breaks outta their shell...you play the right song and that persons gonna jump right outta their chair, look at ya and be like ‘hell yeah dude. I love this song’ and it might be the CEO of a Fortune 500 company on vacation here in Nasvhille. And guess what, now he’s out there shakin’ his ass, wavin his beer up in the air and he’s just let life go right out the window.”
But Nick captivates his audience with his charisma, not just his talent. He draws them in, connects with them, and plays what he knows they want to hear. It just comes natural for him. Most importantly, he keeps them there. His biggest supporters are his fans.
“For every 10 people I meet, 9 people love me. One of them doesn’t. One of them thinks I’m too cocky, or they think I’m whatever...just another gimmick. But there is 9 out of 10 that love me”.
Although Nick’s growing success in Nashville has him performing multiple nights throughout the week, he is also in the recording studio working on his first album. And he feels like he’s accomplished a lot in his short time in Nashville, but he’s not even close to settling. There is a lot more in store for this country boy.
“I don’t care if I ever get famous, really, I don’t. Singin is something that if it comes [fame], that’s cool, if it don’t, that’s cool too. I just wanna play music for a living instead of swinging a hammer. My whole life that’s all I ever thought about doing – being a professional musician. Now I can say that. I’m a Nashville Recording Artist, a country singer, living and playing in Nashville, Tennessee. I mean, I could die right now and be a happy man”
But for anyone who knows Nick Cross, he wouldn’t die a happy man just yet. He came to Nashville with a goal and that goal won’t be fulfilled performing in the bars on Broadway. Nick Cross’s career has a long life ahead of it, and there is no slowing down anytime soon.
“This town is tough. I mean some musicians aren’t even good enough to play Nashville. Some are only good enough to play Nashville and they will never break out of what we call ‘stuck on Broadway’. Well I will guarantee you I will not be ‘stuck on Broadway’. I’m smarter than that, I have more motivation and drive then that.”
Like a story we’ve all heard before. An aspiring musician moves to Nashville, with $200 in his pocket, and a truck full of clothes. He is now watching his dreams unfold before his eyes. His story started out like many, but has certainly exceeded most. And the momentum isn’t slowing down.
