Edmonton Workshop: Dean and Tony’s Sequel (That Doesn’t Suck)
I hope everyone had a relaxing and well deserved Labor Day weekend. The weather here in Boston was piss poor all weekend, so there wasn’t much that Lisa and I were able to do. We did meet up with her old college volleyball team and ate dinner with her coach on Saturday night. And some of you may recall on Facebook a few weekends ago I was asking for advice on bike buying tips.
Lisa’s new job is only 1.5 miles from our apartment, and it makes a lot of sense for her to start biking to and from work to help save time in the mornings.
We know as much about bikes as we both know about World of Warcraft. If you ask me the only thing you need to know about buying a bike is which one makes you look the most jacked. But needless to say there’s a bit more to it than that.
After test riding a few different brands, Lisa ended up really liking the Specialized Vita, and that’s exactly what she ended up getting.
This is her after I dropped her off at the bike store and she rode her brand spankin new bike home.
And as much as I’m sure everyone is thrilled to read about Lisa’s new bike – I mean come on, how good does she look? – lets jump into more pertinent territory.
Namely: Dean and Tony’s Traveling Fitness VooDoo Magic Time Roadshow
Or, to put it in non-five year old speak: Dean Somerset and I doing a sequel to our Boston Workshop, but this time in his neck of the woods up in Edmonton.
AKA: The Edmonton Workshop.
But unlike most sequels, which generally bite the big one (thanks Matrix Reloaded), this one won’t suck. I promise.
We’ll be covering the exact same material as we did in Boston; you know stuff on assessment, corrective exercise, breathing patterns, coaching the big lifts, and how to make an F-16 out of paper mache. But I’m sure we’ll be adding a few smaller details to the mix.
For a full breakdown and tentative itinerary go HERE.
The Boston Workshop was a huge success (no one left early!), and many who attended were more than happy to offer their words of appreciation and praise:
“The workshop with Dean and Tony was fantastic. They mixed science with real life, in the gym, practical solutions. I feel like I’m better off after attending in all aspects of my ability to train others.”
– Ryan Andrews, Precision Nutrition Coach, author of Drop the Fact Act & Live Lean.
“This clinic was a home run! I’m a trainer with a yearly budget for continuing ed. I’m glad I spent it here. I signed up because I knew these guys would drop some knowledge bombs…. I wasn’t disappointed. Tony and Dean’s Excellent Workshop gave great insight on post-rehab exercise and how it can be used in conjunction with training, as well as hammering technique in the basic lifts. I’ll admit I went back to the drawing board to re-evaluate my training techniques.
These guys are tops in their field. I would recommend this seminar to any beginner level trainers /strength coaches, right on up to advanced. It will separate you from the pack.
– Clark Evans, Boston based trainer.
“Dean and Tony are not only two of the brightest guys in the field, and they’re also two of the most entertaining. Newer trainers will get brought up to speed on progressive training strategies and take away hands-on coaching techniques. More experienced coaches will benefit from Tony and Dean’s refined understanding of more complicated concepts. The only part that was weird was at the end when they made everyone do a group hug for 10 minutes, but after they explained it was really a “mind meld,” we all understood. Don’t miss this seminar!”
– Mark Fisher, co-owner of Mark Fisher Fitness, NYC
We want this to be a one of a kind learning opportunity for those in attendance.We’ll do our best to cover the stuff YOU want to learn about, and want to spend less time talking and more time doing. As coaches ourselves, we both feel more comfortable on a training floor with people working their tails off. We want to give you that same kind of experience.
As such, we will also limit registrations to a max of 30 people in order to keep it as intimate and give you as much face time with Dean and Tony as possible. This will also allow us to give more individual instruction on coaching specific movements, spotting corrective strategies to implement, and answer questions efficiently.
The whole shindig is going down the weekend of October 19th and 20th at World Health City Centre in Edmonton. It’s the weekend AFTER Canadian Thanksgiving, and the weekend before it starts getting cold as balls.
So you really have no excuse not to attend,
