1. Digital Strategic Strength Mentorship 

Luke Worthington and I developed our 6-week digital mentorship last Fall because 1) we felt between the two of us, we had a lot of expertise and insights regarding assessment, program design, coaching, brand building, and business that we could offer to other fitness professionals to help build & grow THEIR businesses, and 2) because there’s a fucking pandemic going on that’s prevented us from doing these sorts of things in person.

(Hopefully soon, though)

Nevertheless, we had a great experience the first go round with a stellar group of fitness pros and we’re excited to open it up again this Spring.

It all begins on April 26th.

2. CORE @ Home

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

In all I filmed 36 workouts during quarantine last year 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.

Why Do Clients Leave Personal Trainers? – Stuart Aitken

Not only is Stuart (the author of this article) one of the best podcasts hosts/interviewers I have ever corresponded with, but he’s also a very knowledgeable coach and this piece demonstrates why.

The Alexandra Show: A Conversation On Breaking the Stigma of Mental Health w/ Dr. Lisa Lewis

Full Disclosure: Alexandra is a long standing personal training client of mine. Dr. Lisa Lewis is my wife. I’m undoubtedly biased, but this interview is the shit.

Alexandra is a gifted interviewer and Lisa is pretty much the world’s best psychologist (and hugger giver). I think you’ll enjoy this candid, genuine, and sometimes funny conversation on mental health.

No Respect for Basic Strength Training? Lift in the Garage – Zach Even-Esh

Not gonna lie: After reading this I wanted to run through a wall.

But for real, Zach has such a knack for being inspiring with his words and showcasing that getting big and strong is really not that complicated. You don’t need fancy equipment or a world renowned coach.

All you really need is a garage, some weights (and some self-discipline for course).

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.
