    Because, like VO2max, it's a useless number that by itself signifies nothing.

    It's also an excellent way to scare off potential clients and intimidate and humiliate new clients. I thoroughly...

    Your clients will not be top athletes.

    Your job as a trainer is to take people from A to B, from where they are now to where they want to be. Athletes are really focused on where they want to go,...

    If you are making a more than part-time effort on this part-time job, why are you not able to turn it into a full-time job?

    In your profession, in your clients and athletes - results count. You...

    I believe he is like Lane Norton and Dana Bailey, who have also been accused of steroid use and loudly defended themselves, sometimes even with legal action. When you're selling supplements and...

    The day your certificate arrives in the mail, those books you had to read to get the answers to pass? Throw them away.

    After that you can start reading actually useful books.

    Every trainer must find their niche. Yours will be "people who want to get strong as fck."

    This is a niche totally unexplored in most commercial and community gyms. There's not many people into...

    $2,500 for a few days of being called "mothafcka" seems a bit pricey, unless it comes with a free cycle of vitamin T.

    I give tactile cues if they're using bodyweight or machines. I don't touch them if they have a weight in their hands - the startle reflex can lead to the weight going wild and thus injury.

    Get your hands off the barbell and the client. Don't crowd the poor sod. Step back. Only step in if they're going to hurt themselves.

    Progression. Progression of weights, reps, technique and complexity of exercises. That's what PT clients pay for. They can indeed run through the same routine on their own for months on end.

    Nope.

    People ask questions here, nobody ever follows up with us to tell us how they want following our advice, ignoring or altering it as they saw fit. Typically they don't thank us, either.

    I would first ask myself, what tools do I know how to coach people to use? And get those. And you should really know those tools, have used them to a competitive level and/or done a coaching course...
