The Next Resource Every Strength Coach Needs
Great New Resource:
Finding time for self-education is not an easy task when you are a fitness-therapy professional working 6am to 6pm. Every year we try to go to conferences and seminars, but as life takes place that does not always happen. With digital media capabilities we now have access to great resources like http://www.strengthcoach.com/ and http://www.coreperformance.com/. Additionally, facebook and twitter provide a great platform for micro-blogging and getting information quick.
With a greater need for depth of understanding we can look to podcasts for help. Websites like http://www.strengthcoachpodcast.com/ provide a wealth of knowledge from authors like Mike Boyle, Gray Cook, Mark Verstegen, Brandon Marcelo and many more.
The next evolution in anytime education is here with the launch of webinars. From the comfort of your own home you can watch and listen-in as presentations are being given by leading authorities in the field of strength conditioning, personal training and sports therapy.
Anthony Renna, the forward thinking coach who brought us strengthcoachpodcast.com, now has developed a new webinar site called strengthandconditioningwebinars.com.
Each month, members of the site will see at least 2 webinars from strength coaches like Michael Boyle, Alwyn Cosgrove, Brett Jones, Mike Robertson, and Eric Cressey; therapists like Gray Cook, Mike Reinold and Lee Burton. The site will also bring great coaches and therapists to the forefront who have not necessarily become mainstream.
The great thing about this site is that all of the webinars are being recorded so members can watch them anytime they want, there is no need to be present. There will also be a forum on the site that the presenters will be checking in on so members can ask any questions that they have about the webinars.
Check out the site and let me know your thoughts. I will be doing some talks on there in later months that will be in-line with some upcoming blogs I have planned.
