Upcoming Speaking Engagement
Earlier this month, much like everyone else in the free world, I made a few resolutions that, so far, I’ve been able to not suck at.
Operation Hydration is still in full swing. I’ve been crushing water like it’s my job, and it’s really made a difference in how I feel on a day-to-day basis. Granted I pee a lot more – and I absolutely HATE getting up in the middle of the night – but that minor nuisance is well worth it considering I’m walking around less lethargic and just feel like a new person overall.
NOTE: For those interested, I just take my body weight and divide that by half, and that’s how many ounces of water I shoot for. Whatever I drink over that is just a bonus.
On a more professional level, I also mentioned how I was going to try to do more speaking engagements this year. As it stands now, I have a handful that are in the works for later on this summer and fall, but I’ll elaborate on those at another time when I have all the details. More relevant to the near future though, I’ll be speaking at a local Boston Sports Club in mid-February.
The event will be held on Tuesday, February 21st at 2:30 PM at the Downtown Crossing BSC. My talk is going to be catered towards personal trainers and it’s tentatively titled 10 Traits of an Effective Fitness Professional. I know, it’s a lame title. I may opt to go with something more Gentilcoreian, like, Stop Doing Stupid Shit.
I don’t know, I’ll keep working on it.
Nevertheless, I plan on discussing several topics, but serving as the meat and potatoes will namely be assessment and program design. And maybe a teeny tiny bit on why I’d rather set my face on fire than include any unstable surface training into the mix.
The idea is to keep this a more manageable and “intimate” setting, so spots are limited (I believe the cap is between 16-20, and as of today, ten are already confirmed). If you’re a local trainer in Boston, and you happen to have a few hours free that afternoon, it might be well worth your time to come down and listen.
The talk is going to be roughly 90-120 minutes, and I’m pretty sure there’s going to be a smoke machine and laser show as part of the introduction (only a slight exaggeration).

Hope to see you there!
