When I started as an entry-level personal trainer, my only goal was to help as much people as I can and continually improve as a coach. I had no intentions of stepping on anyone’s toes and was never remotely interested in crowning myself as “top trainer”.
Fast forward almost three years later.
The first three months of 2016 have been nothing short of spectacular. I’m running my own fitness business, working on my own terms, and networking with some of the top minds of the fitness industry. #Winning
On top of that, my clients are kicking ass. I couldn’t have asked for a better start.
Spent the last few days designing programs for my clients. Multiple PR's were set this morning. Bree got a 145 lbs fairly easy and Suzanne pulled 205 lbs. This was after squatting 100 and 115, respectively. #womenwholift #strength #squat #glutes #deadlift #personaltrainer #strengthcoach #honolulu #hawaii
With that being said, there are a few things I’m looking forward to in the upcoming months:
1) Captain America: Civil War
I’m going crazy just thinking about it. I’m literally going to bring my Captain America shield with me.
2) I’m going to be an uncle!
He’s going to be deadlifting and squatting.
3) Vacation in the Philippines
It’s been almost 10 years since I’ve stepped foot in the Philippines, and I’m pretty stoked about it.
On that note, here are some great reads I recommend for the month of March.
Probably one of the most influential books I’ve ever read and I’m only halfway done.
K. Aleisha Fetters chimes in on whether or not you should incorporate cardio if you’re seeking to improve your overall health.
I’ve been reading Jim Wendler’s stuff since I started to do anything related to strength and conditioning. Whether you’re a beginner, intermediate, or an advanced lifter, this is definitely an article I recommend reading.
Excellent article by Eric Bach. Simple isn’t always sexy, but it gets the job done.
Now this is a good read for people in the fitness industry. What really resonated with me in this post:
“Solidify Your Training Model”
If you’ve been following me for awhile, you’ll know that Tony Gentilcore has been instrumental to my development as a coach. He hits the nail on the coffin with this one.
