1. Virtual Coaching Competency Workshop – Coming in March

Since I won’t be traveling anytime soon to present, I decided why not bring one of my workshops to YOU? I will be putting on my popular Coaching Competency Workshop this March over the span of three weekends.

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

  • 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. 

You can register at the EARLY BIRD rate now through 2/15. For more info go HERE.

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.

Now that many parts of the US (and world) have started to implement a second wave of shut-downs, this resource is timely.

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.

How to Handle Bad Workouts – Nia Shanks

Nia goes into more detail on this and I encourage you to read what she has to say. I’ll add my two cents by quoting the great Ted Lasso:

“Be a goldfish.”

Context: Goldfish have no short-term memory. If you have a bad workout, be a goldfish…;o)

Also: Watch Ted Lasso. Best show I’ve watched in a long time.

4 Years Ago, I Graduated From Business School and Didn’t “Use” My Degree. Why That Was the Best Decision of My Life – Gerry DeFilippo

Some people say to follow your passion.

Others say that’s bunk advice. I mean, if you’re passion is being a Broadway performer and you have two left feet, well then, things aren’t going to work out well.

The answer, as always, is somewhere in the middle.

Set-Rep Schemes for the Under-Equipped – Geoff Girvitz

Many of you are still unable to hit up a proper gym and are stuck using a smattering of equipment at home. Here’s some cool ideas to turbo boost your training.

BONUS: Back in the Day Buffet (an old joint I wrote that you likely missed)

Stop “Should’ing All Over Yourself 

Can you spot me in the picture?….LOL

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.
