It’s taken longer than I anticipated and have been dealing with internet issues at the gym since the first of May but the strength training templates are finally DONE! I’ve also written out a FAQ sheet that will be available for each template I design. This will be made available in DropBox along with some scientific studies, how to’s, and whatever else I think may be worth adding.

Three months worth of workout programming towards the online personal training men’s strength templates have now been finished. One more months worth then on to the females.
The original online personal training templates will be designed for male/female strength, male/female fat loss, and a more generic varied template simply geared towards adherence. Over time I’ll probably add some more options but to get things going those will be the 5 groups targeted.

Moving right along with the National Academy of Sports Medicines Behavior Change Specialist course. Most personal training related certifications focus solely on exercise and nutrition. Many times the mental challenge of sticking to your plan may be the most difficult obstacle of all.
