Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 3/6/20
I’m currently in Paris.
It’s a detour I’ve made in between two weekends of teaching workshops (last weekend in Athens, Greece and this coming weekend in London).
I love it here. I only had one full day at my disposal so I made the most of it. I adore walking around European cities so I coordinated my iPhone with Google Maps and hit up Musee d’Orsay, Louvre (just to see it), Arc du Triomphe, Eiffel Tower (whoa), and Notre Dame.
Not too bad, right? Most of the “big hits.”
Sadly, it’s been a swift 36 hours and it’s time to pack, head to the train station, and take the Chunnel to London.
BUT FIRST…I’M LIKE, REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT
(Things I’ve appeared in, places I’m going, you know, important stuff)
1. Strategic Strength Workshop – Detroit, MI: April 5, 2020
This will be my first ever workshop in the region!
I’m expecting ticker tape parades.
2. Strategic Strength Workshop – Washington, DC: May 17, 2020
SOCIAL MEDIA SHENANIGANS
Do your rows look like this?
– Excessive forward head posture.
– Excessive glenohumeral extension (scap anterior tilt, shoulder rolling forward.)

STUFF TO READ WHILE YOU’RE PRETENDING TO WORK
Psych Skills for Fitness Pros – Dr. Lisa Lewis
This is the ONLY resource out there designed specifically for personal trainers, strength & nutrition coaches, physical therapists, athletic trainers, and, I don’t know, bomb sniffing dolphin trainers to accelerate their communication and motivational skills to help their clients’ get results.
What bogs us down as fitness professionals isn’t the nuances of improving scapular upward rotation, bench press technique, or figuring out the optimal sets/reps for someone.
Nope, it’s other people’s shit.
Those clients who are inconsistent, unmotivated, relapse, or altogether quit.
Like it or not, if you’re a coach you ARE utilizing psychology everyday and it’s these “soft skills” of coaching that will help offset burnout.
- Study at home at your own pace.
- CEUs available.
- Learn from an actual doctor (and not some Instagram mindset coach asshat).
Psych Skills for Fitness Pros is on sale NOW through March 18th at $100 off the regular price.
Interactive Bullshit Detector for Health Products & Services – Dr. Bill Sukula
This has a few LOLs (and I always love a good rant/takedown piece).
