#AskAchieve 80: The Coaches' Episode and a Special Announcement for Coaches!

What's up, Achievers?! This episode is specifically for all you coaches, personal trainers, and fitness professionals out there! We cover topics like when we talk about mindset and nutrition habits during our training sessions, what we do if we think our workouts progress clients too slowly, and if we make any modifications during our assessment process if we're working with someone who is elderly. At the end of the episode, we discuss a project we've been working on for quite some time now. It's an educational platform that covers everything that Lauren and I wished we had known when we first started out as personal trainers - it ranges from nitty gritty stuff like what CPT you should pursue, to where you should look for your first job all the way down to how to sell yourself at your gym, how to program for your clients, how to provide nutritional advice, how to teach the fundamental movement patterns (squatting, hinging, pushing, pulling, lunging, etc.) and coach them based upon the invidividual in front of you rather than forcing them into "textbook" form, and how to approach personal branding. 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. The most important aspect of the platform will be the community. Personal training is a pretty lonely field, and not many people/friends/family will understand the true "grind" and nature of our work. 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 ...

What's up, Achievers?! Sorry for the brief hiatus! With holiday travels and craziness, we decided to take the podcast off our plate for a couple weeks. But, we're back! Kendrick interjected with a couple of good noises and screams but we were able to get through the episode okay haha! In the first question, we dive into a few strategies that will help you get your first pullup. We delve deeper into some of the details in this youtube video as well [here](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQqv_DkY6rs&index=16&list=PLGgD7uaxG2kYDog3qDt2dHmno52XLXG2L) (4:08) Then, we went over how to get over the fear of getting under the barbell during snatches (12:04). Finally, we covered how to overcome a plateau - we decided to go with weight loss and strength training plateaus as those are the primary questions we get asked most of the time (17:25).
