5 Reasons to Consider Purchasing The Complete Trainers’ Toolbox
Admittedly I’m a bit biased since my name is attached to it, but The Complete Trainers’ Toolbox is the shit.
Pulitzer Prize worthy in fact.
Okay, I guess I’m really biased.
Here are FIVE quick-n-dirty reasons you should consider purchasing it.
1) I’m Awesome
Lets be real: You don’t think I’m going to attach my name to something sub-par do you?
I mean, this isn’t season two of Stranger Things or, I don’t know, whomever Carrie ended up dating after she broke up with Aidan.1
But just so that I don’t come across as a total pompous a-hole, every person involved with this project is an established fitness professional with years of experience under his or her’s belt.
Every…single…person has at least 10+ years experience in the health/fitness industry.
And with that, 10+ years of mistakes, successes, hindsight, things they’d do differently, things they’d do the same, not to mention an absurd number of protein shaker bottles left in their gym bag for a week too long.
The Toolbox came to fruition because we saw an opportunity to help other fitness professionals improve and grow their business: to tackle common industry pitfalls and traps, save time scouring the internet for answers, and foster a scenario where you build a successful career with integrity.
What’s more, every contributor is a coach who actually coaches people…in real life.
How better to learn than from coaches who practice what they preach?
But seriously, I am awesome…;o)
2) There’s a Little Something For Everyone
As can be expected with a resource such as this, The Toolbox goes into the weeds on topics such as program design, assessment,
why Tony incessantly posts pictures of his cat online, and breaking down exercise technique.
Sam Spinelli’s presentation on “Everything Squats, Knees, & Hips” is outstanding. And if Luke Worthington’s presentation on assessment doesn’t make you swoon, his British accent will.
However, what I feel makes this resource special is that it includes a little bit of everything. I don’t know about you, but I can only handle so many hours of any one topic before I want to jump through a pane glass window.
The only exception(s) would be 1) breaking down and ranking Jason Bourne fight scenes and 2) bacon.
Here you get 17 hours of content, albeit all bundled up in a consortium of diverse topics – everything mentioned above in addition to presentations on:
- Programming For Pull-Ups
- Understanding Flexion & Extension Based Back Pain
- How to Write Stellar Fitness Content
- Improving Overhead Mobility
- Finding Your Ideal Client, and
- Core & Pelvic Floor Lifting Considerations.
What’s more, Dr. Lisa Lewis’s presentations on Negative Self Talk and How to Increase Motivation are the two wild cards, in my opinion, that provide a ton of value that most fitness professionals need to educate themselves more on.
Like it or not, if you’re a personal trainer or coach, half of what you do entails psych0logy and the “soft” skills of coaching
This is what will separate you from the masses.
FULL DISCLOSURE: Dr. Lewis is my wife. I don’t call her Dr. Lewis at home by the way2.
3) It Isn’t JUST Dudes Talking
Nine industry experts are involved with this resource.
Four are women.
That’s a HUGE deal and it’s pretty fucking cool.
4) Go At Your Own Pace and Earn Continuing Education Credits
The Trainer’s Toolbox is an online resource that you can view at your own pace. There’s no time requirement to complete it, so whether you want to binge watch everything in two days or watch a little here and a little there…you do you.
Moreover, when complete (and you send in your exam) you can earn 1.7 continuing education credits via the NSCA.
I believe 202o is a re-certification year and if it’s tough for you to travel to attend workshops and seminars this is a convenient way to meet those requirements.
5) You Can Purchase Individual Webinars
Maybe you’re not feeling the entire package and only a few presentations peak your interest?
Cool, cool, cool.
You also have the option to purchase individual webinars, and this week only they’re all on sale at $29 apiece (normally $37).
6) BONUS: You Can Save $100 OFF the Regular Price
The Complete Trainers’ Toolbox is currently on sale at $100 off the regular price, but it only last through this Sunday (10/20) at midnight.
Take advantage while you can.
