Note to ALL Trainers/S&C Coaches
« on: October 03, 2010, 08:10:16 pm »
0
I'm posting to every forum I can, I'm calling out all trainers and S&C Coaches and telling everyone I'm working towards creating a better class of personal trainer and S&C Coach, there are a ton of trainers who have no clue (regarding training) and don't belong, they don't even understand the basics - example co-worker talking to a member the other day about 'Plantar Facsitis' clearly had no clue what she was talking about, I interrupted her and told him everything he needed to know.  I'm going to end up posting some Youtube vids in the next few weeks, and I'm going to be making some enemies, and I'm looking forward to it, I'm going to be saying what other trainers don't want me to say and what the clients need to hear.  Most trainers don't know what they're doing and people are going to begin to figure that all out.
The people who are in this industry need to figure it out, the term functional as in functional training, by itself means nothing about putting someone on a ball and having them squat, and it doesn't mean doing lateral raises while standing on a BOSU ball. Trainers and coaches need to be held more accountable, and its my personal belief that every trainer and coach should have the confidence to say to every client "If you follow exactly what I say and recommend then I will GUARANTEE results." Most forget to realize we're hired for 1 reason, to get results, and if we're not doing that then to put it simply, get out.

O and...





Paragraphs are your friend. I agree with the overall message, but it's so hard to read it because its a block of text. Also calling out specific people on the internet might help

Say NO to Maroko

And also NO to anyone who associates with him. No Taylor Allan. No Adam Scammenauger. No Kelly Baggett. No Elliot Hulse. No Jtrinsey. NO JUMP USA


Don't PM me asking me training questions. I'm here for the lulz. If you want help, post on the forums and get help from all the members, maybe even me.

Good idea, start with the ones who dive head first into all the new bullshit gimmicky trashy ass programs that come out and post about them on the forums, misleading young, inexperienced athletes.  Next go to the "strength coaches" who are actually personal trainers at health and fitness clubs and have little to no experience working with actual ATHLETES.  After you destroy them, start working on the guys who just got their education and certifications and know everything there is to know about training, without having actually put it into practice yet.  Good idea man, those guys annoy the piss out of me.

I'm posting to every forum I can, I'm calling out all trainers and S&C Coaches and telling everyone I'm working towards creating a better class of personal trainer and S&C Coach, there are a ton of trainers who have no clue (regarding training) and don't belong, they don't even understand the basics - example co-worker talking to a member the other day about 'Plantar Facsitis' clearly had no clue what she was talking about, I interrupted her and told him everything he needed to know.  I'm going to end up posting some Youtube vids in the next few weeks, and I'm going to be making some enemies, and I'm looking forward to it, I'm going to be saying what other trainers don't want me to say and what the clients need to hear.  Most trainers don't know what they're doing and people are going to begin to figure that all out.

well that's going to be a pretty hard task, the s&c field is really watered down & muddied.

My take on it is this, how do you really reach & effect the minds of those interested in improving their performance? You have to become elite, yourself, as a coach (or at least turn out some insane before/after results of your clients).. Until then, you'll never make enough noise to completely nullify anything the "scammers & bs artists" put out.. It just won't happen.. It is extremely rare that a coach goes from average to elite, in fact, it's probably never happened. If this path we are all on was so easy, we'd see insane transformations left & right being demonstrated, on youtube, on the net, etc. The closest thing I can think of, to that happening, is the Adam Archuletta story, but he definitely wasn't an average athlete regardless of what anyone is trying to tell you. The stir/buzz around him and his training caused a huge rift in the s&c world, ears & eyes were open, too bad it turned out the way it did.

So, even if you fail at making yourself elite, at least you have a better understanding of what it takes to BECOME elite.. it's so damn hard, it takes so much dedication, focus, some luck, and lack of injuries.. But that journey prepares someone better, when it comes to getting others results, than someone who just learned in a university, online, or did some internship. To understand the journey & what it takes, is what gives coaches that real edge in obtaining results with their athletes. Regardless of the actual goal, it all requires the same sacrifices by the athlete.. Becoming elite in marathon, 1mile run, 5k, weightlifting, sprinting, high jump, long jump, basketball, etc, all requires the same exact overall process, just different methods of training/programming.

So ya, no offense to 'Trainers and coaches" who don't do shit, i mean, i got no problem with them, but if they aren't constantly trying to improve themselves (or have never done so), then how could they understand what goes in to obtaining the absolute best transformations of their athletes. I don't see how it could be possible. Coaches/Trainers who have no real training experience, usually become the ones you are talking about: the bosu ball addicts, always trying to find some fancy stupid exercise & magic pill, etc. So that's why i bring that up.

How do we get people from 25 RVJ to 45, not from 25 to 35, etc.. not from 25 to 30.. not from 25 to 28 using "instant inches" etc.. It's a long process, utilizing fundamentals & simplicity to the fullest, and that's what true s&c is, that's what eventually needs to be "retaught" to the overall "athletic enhancement community".

I mean, that's my goal with this site, to get people on the track to getting real results, get out solid information, and be able to demonstrate all of these concepts we utilize here.. The overall goal is to make a huge dent in the industry, but my #1 way of going about it is to prove that I myself can hit 45" rvj, illustrate & document the process, etc.. Once people understand it takes a 300-400 page journal to achieve such results, then my little mission can spread :D

Who knows if it will happen (i believe fully that it will), but i'm damn sure trying pretty hard.. heh.

It is definitely all about results, I 100% agree with that.. Unfortunately, most performance centers get you results on things that don't matter, such as box jump height, ladder drills, balance drills, etc.. Don't talk to me unless it improves your:

- running vertical jump
- standing vertical jump
- broad jump
- sprint times
- lateral shuttle/3-cone
- shuttle run conditioning tests/400m/something (optional)
- sport specific improvement/in game performance
- etc

In regards to performance enhancement, I could care less if someone adds 200 lb to their squat if they didn't gain in any performance variables, to me, all that means is they got slower.

peace man

part of my little rant above, was this, just to clarify.. it's easy as a coach, to get a freak/advanced athlete, and keep them from getting hurt, and just have them train to train.. but it is obviously not even close to as easy, taking those dealt a bad hand in the "Genetic pool" to freak status.. their are far more people in that boat, who want to become advanced, yet never go anywhere.. who truly have a passion for obtaining that level for performance, yet, are just constantly pointed in the wrong direction.. changing that is hard, but the only way i see it happenings is through actual demonstrations of true transformations, which is extremely rare.

peace

Well said Andrew. And you are right about getting people to understand the time, effort, and dedication required to truly become awesome at something. 10 sec 100m sprint times aren't achieved in 1 year of training, it takes years.

Steroids or not, look at Brian Cushing








Those are the types of results we should see (or whatever you can do naturally), not being shown a genetic freak jumping 40 inches even though we have no idea where they started.

And it actually should produce results on the football field (or whatever they play). Cushing is one of the top linebackers in the NFL.

Cushing believe it or not is around 220 pounds in that picture. Raptor looks 150 pounds in his videos.


And Bmully, his starting point is around where I'd like to get lol. I do not think I could get as big as Brian Cushing even using the right "training" for my entire life.
