Thanks again to everyone who watched and sent in questions for the discussion Gymchat 234 – Fitness Industry Posers [with Powerlifter Bill Piche, joined by Personal Trainer (and Strength Athlete) Josh Hewett] – much appreciated. If you haven’t seen it yet (or simply want to go over a particular point again), here’s the entire video.
It was a great discussion. Josh and Bill discussed the value of a home gym, Bill’s fitness background, the history of Cyberpump.com, importance of knowing a subject well before teaching it, continuous learning, risk of injury, following trends, training at home vs training in a commercial gym, ‘throw and catch‘ style training, arm training, analysing diet before adding supplements, importance of a trainer who looks as though they train themselves, the types of things people should look for when seeking a trainer, the value of having been through a large transformation yourself, qualifications, online training, how trainers can assess themselves and make adjustments as necessary; and a whole lot more. If you’re ready to find out what finding (and being) a great Personal Trainer is all about, make sure you watch this one.
There were several people, sites and books mentioned during the discussion – all of which are well worth checking out. In particular :
- The incredible Cyberpump.com – especially Bill’s column & newsletter
- Joe Roark‘s Iron History forums
- The book How to Transform Your Physique (transformyourphysique.com)
- Diesel Crew
- Josh’s training montage
