Personal Training versus Coaching

If you want to get strong (and you should, since strength makes everything easier), you need to know what you are doing. As a coach, it is my job to teach you how to lift, and how to program the lifts. However, it is not my job to follow you around the gym holding a clipboard and making sure that you workout, or chatting with you about the weather, or changing the weights for you. I don't want to sign you up for months of sessions. I want to teach you, so you can succeed on your own.

Buy the book, read it, attempt the lifts, and hire me to make sure you are doing them right. Then continue to do them right on your own.

Of course, if you really want to sign up for months of sessions, and help me put my kids through college, I'd be happy to do it. . . .
