1. Virtual Coaching Competency Workshop – Begins 3/7/21

There’s only one more week left to register for my Virtual Coaching Competency Workshop.

I figured chances would be high many attendees would be fighting off the urge to commit seppuku staring at their computer screen for seven straight hours so made the executive decision to spread things out over three consecutive weekends:

  • 3 Hours on 3/7
  • 2 Hours on 3/14
  • 2 Hours on 3/21

The course has been approved for CEUs via the NSCA and all attendees will receive a recording in case Eastern Standard Time doesn’t bode well for your schedule.

2. CORE @ Home

You can now purchase CORE @ Home for whatever you want to pay.

During the first quarantine I started a platform where I’d deliver 20-40 minute workouts that could be performed in everyone’s living room using minimal equipment.

In all I filmed 36 workouts using nothing but bodyweight, bands, and kettlebells and/or dumbbells. With many people still reticent to head back to their regular gyms (not to mention the scarcity of gym equipment out there to purchase) I figured this would be a nice opportunity to help.

Whether you want to spend $1 or $99 (FYI: the latter enters you to win a 5×7 shirtless pic of me), the workouts are ready and available to start.

When to Add More Weight to the Bar – Mark Hoover

If you train young athletes this is a MUST read.

I demand you read it.


8 Ways Personal Trainers Can Get Kids to Love Fitness – Andrew Coates

Cutest cameo of a toddler in an article in internet history inside…;o)

Transgender Equality in Sport – Malcom Godowski

Let me start by saying there’s a TON of nuance here and I truly believe there’s no clear cut “winner” to this controversial topic.

If I’m going to be honest: There’s parts of each side of the argument I agree with.

Regardless of what side of the political debate you’re on I think it’s important to be exposed to varying facts (even if you don’t agree with them) and opinions.

And that’s why I am sharing this article here.

This is a fascinating read by Malcom and I encourage everyone to take the time to check it out.

Did what you just read make your day? Ruin it? Either way, you should share it with your friends and/or comment below.

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.

    Loved the article on getting kids involved and loving fitness! When I had my son I joined a gym in Atlanta that allowed us all to bring our kids....all different ages from babies in carriers to pre-teens...and it was such a nice experience and inclusive! Some even carried the babies instead of the bells for some workouts. Those were some of my favorite memories getting back in shape postpartum.
