Future modules are going to cover the ins and outs of kettlebell training, powerlifting, olympic lifting as well as presentations on very specific topics brought up by the group.

Having a community of like-minded professionals to learn from, collaborate with, bounce ideas off of, and sometiems comiserate with is going to be invaluable. This won't be just a one-off product that we ...
