OUR ONLINE EDUCATIONAL COURSE:
beyond the cpt
We created this course to help expedite the learning process for up and coming personal trainers, strength coaches, and fitness instructors. We have taken what took us over 12 years to learn ourselves - through attending workshops, certifications and seminars, watching educational dvds, reading books, and connecting with our own mentors in the field - and distilled it into easily digestible pieces of real-world information!
This course will not only give you tangible, applicable knowledge to take with you into your training sessions and classes, but it will also help you to gain more confidence and get more clients. When we were first starting out, we were never sure if we were doing the right thing, which limited our ability to sell our services effectively. The more confidence you have in your abilities as a coach, the more effective you will be at selling, making more money, and having a greater impact on more people!

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO
content creation for instagram

This guide gives you a behind the scenes look into our exact process of putting together quality content including which equipment we use, how we take pictures and videos, our top tips to grow your audience on Instagram, as well an in-depth look at exactly how we go about crafting an Instagram post from the video shoot all the way to the edit and caption. If you want to stand out from the crowd and want to save time by avoiding making the same mistakes we did when we first started putting out content, then this is the guide for you!

achieve READING LIST
One of the most common questions we get asked is, “where did you learn all of this information.” We always have a difficult time answering that question because our knowledge of coaching and training is in part due to our many years in the trenches, but in large part thanks to the diverse range of books we’ve read and seminars and certifications we’ve attended.
To help guide coaches and trainers in the right direction when it comes to continuing education through books, we’ve put together this free resource with our favorite health and fitness reading materials! The list takes you from the basics of communication and relationship building to advanced periodization and human anatomy, and everything in between!
