#AskAchieve 30: Home Workouts, Box Squats, Keep it Professional with Your Clients, and Jason's Camera Gear!

What's up, Achievers?! Episode 30! We've got some tips for you today to cover what equipment you would need for a home gym as well as how to put together a home workout program (4:12). We also go over the pros and cons of Box Squatting - what the exercise is, who it's for, and if we recommend them to the general population (13:50). The next two questions are primarily personal trainer/fitness coach focused: We talk about how to develop a close relationship with your personal training clients and gym members without crossing that professional line (16:30). Lastly, we discuss our thoughts on camera gear and what should be prioritized in social media (21:06). My camera currently is a Canon 80D, Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 Lens, and a Rode VideoMic Pro. In the past, I have recommended a Canon Rebel T7i, Tokina 11-16mm lens, and a Rode VideoMic Go for newer users. For brand new people who just want a point and shoot the Canon G7x or the Sony RX100 Mark IV are incredible cameras in a compact setting. We hope this video helped you out! Please send in any questions via DM to @achievefitnessboston on Instagram and please, please, please leave us a review on iTunes - we'd really appreciate it :) Until next time, Peace, Love, and Muscles! ...

#AskAchieve 52: Fit 101 Workshop Recap, Bar Positioning for Squats, Training an "Older" Population, and When to Switch Up Your Program!

What's up, Achievers?! Super fun episode for you all today where we recap some of the highlights from this past weekend of our Fit 101 Workshop! Quick shoutout to our coaches, Sarah and Ted, for doing a phenomenal job! Also, super fun to finally meet some people who we've been corresponding with quite a bit on Instagram. In our first question, we talk about how to position a barbell on your back depending on what stance you're using (6:31). Next, we talk about how to go about training someone who is older and slightly more deconditioned - it was asked from someone who was about to work with their father, which is pretty cool (11:28)! Lastly, we discuss when to go about switching up your program after you've been on it for a little while. We go on some tangents like the concept of WODs and "muscle confusion" and soreness (17:36). We hope you enjoyed this episode! If you did, we'd love you forever if you left a rating and review on iTunes - it seriously helps us out a lot! Please DM us @achievefitnessboston on Instagram if you have any questions you'd like us to answer. Until next time, Peace, Love, and Muscles! ...
