It was a great discussion. Josh, Zach, Adam and Dylan discussed reduction of injuries, work ethics, strength training & mental toughness, why 'underground', importance of both learning what to do and acting upon it, being a crossfit affiliate, training athletes, avoid using time when training younger athletes - focus on technique, training athletes - modifying workouts, fitness bookshelves, use of couplets and triplets, value of change, training large groups, things to ensure when offering free services, marketing in person vs online, recommending (to your clients) things to do and read, value of choosing exercises which are simple to teach and to learn, scheduling according to client needs, learning from everybody, basic nutrition; and a whole lot more. If you're ready to get seriously strong, make sure you watch this one.
