The fitness industry tried to convince you that a list of exercises is the same as gaining and applying scientific knowledge. Because you are here, you know that there is something more to gain by thinking for yourself and being empowered by fitness.
This interview with Grant Buchanan is a tell-all on thinking fit and being fit in a crowded marketplace of influencers and pop-culture nonsense.
If you are a trainer, this episode will be an insight on thinking for yourself and redefining functional training out of a neutral position.
If you are an exercise enthusiast, this conversation will present something more than motivation in personal training and that the idea of ‘being broken’ is flat out wrong and misleading.
If you are an Athletic Trainer or Strength & Conditioning Professional, this episode has some fun anecdotes about worthy certification and educational courses that don’t involve kettlebells and speed ladders.
Jennifer even discusses what she has learned from working with professional athletes in a one on one setting.
Topics of discussion:
Effective cueing techniques
Mindset of being broken vs taking our clients in an empowering direction
Grant’s story and interests as an Exercise Professional
Principles of active and critical thinking in fitness
Training tissues to expose weakness’
