A Formula for Coaches and a Guarantee! (1 Day to Launch)
This week is a big one for me. Its the biggest online project that I have launched to date in my career, coupled with the usual craziness in the gym with all the athletes training hard.
I look after over 200 athletes programmes and spend hours in the gym and on the court/field every week. The diversity of the populations I work with is also pretty big. Badminton, rugby league, tennis, MMA, basketball, snowboarding, golf, netball and many many more believe me!
Whilst I can’t claim to be an expert in ALL of these sports, what I do believe I am an expert in is getting results fast with these athletes and clients. Around 8 years of quality experience (plus a few more before that as an athlete going through the process) has given me a decent understanding of what works and what doesn’t when it comes to building strength, power and muscle, as well as stripping fat and developing endurance.
Now i’m not saying for a minute that I know it all, on the contrary i think that will never happen as the industry is evolving so fast it’s hard to stay on top of things as it is! Thats why I started strength and conditioning educational seminars to bring the best up to teach me how they do it! I also am fortunate to have friends and colleagues such as Duncan French and Nick Grantham who I can ask for their views on things and they can offer a massive amount more experience than I can on things and from slightly different perspectives too! (I’m not saying they are old gits….but the’re getting there lol!) I also have a really good team around me including my interns as well as coaches who work at Carnegie including Ian Pyper (GB Triathlon and Boxing S&C coach), Tom Whittaker (World Class Lifting S&C coach) and the legend that is Tamas Feher (World Class Lifting Head Coach) who I can talk to about all things olympic lifting!
I think I have a pretty good network of people to bounce ideas off and combined with my own experience this gives me a lot of confidence in what I can deliver.
In a recent blog post I offered up a formula that needs to be right for you to get results.That formula was for athletes or trainees.
Although I’m not coming up with a formula for coaches here, what I can say is that experience and reflection, knowledge and continued development, good communication skills and a genuine passion to help people as best you can, gives you a pretty good blueprint for being a successful coach. Throw in a great network of people around you to keep you sharp and thats as close to a formula as your getting today!
The obvious question here is which of these attributes do you need to work on in your coaching? Some of them can easily be improved, some arguably cannot be improved at all. What do you think? Leave me a comment below.
With that in mind and putting my sales hat on for a second, my online strength and size programme launches tomorrow.
Here’s what you get for £9 a month or £75 per year (for the first 200 members then the price goes up):
- A brand new strength programme every month designed by me!
- A video of all the exercises and movements in the programme along with coaching by myself
- Have your own technique on any of the exercises critiqued by myself and my team of S&C experts
- Ability to ask me questions and more importantly GET ANSWERS!
- Nutritional lessons to skyrocket your training gains
- Access to a private members only discussion forum and support network to help you achieve your goals
- Exclusive discounts to my workshops, seminars, and products that no one else will get!
- Bonus videos and articles to further aid your training and boost your gains EVEN MORE!
I’m also guaranteeing you results or you get your money back!
Why can I do this? Because I’m ultra confident in what I can deliver based on the experience I have and the results I achieve with my clients on a daily basis in the gym.
If you’re not happy with the product or the service you can have your money back! Its that simple!
Ill be sending out the link tomorrow morning so stay tuned!
