I was trying to think about what to write about today. At first, I did not know what to write, but as I reflected on the week before the ideas started coming in. Last Weekend with Mike Robertson, feedback has been incredible.
My and Mike’s Facebook pages were plastered with all kinds of kind words from people that attended.
I do enjoy bringing the best to Vancouver to help trainers, coaches, and therapists learn from the best.
Mike Robertson is one of the best.
If you missed out on last weekend, here is a clip from it:
The Next Big Name
It is Justin Price.
He will be coming to Vancouver in March 2011.
Even Mike Robertson Had a Good Time in Vancouver
Since I know how it is to be a presenter and host courses, I do all I can to make it easy for people that I host to present fitness education courses.
I did the best I could with Mike as well, and it sounds like it turned out well.
Mike did a very kind review of his weekend teaching in Vancouver, CLICK HERE to read it.
The weekend started Saturday morning with an overview of my philosophy on training, as well as functional anatomy. Attendees had free access to ask any questions they had and how the lecture was pertinent to training their clients/athletes. After lunch, they came back to the assessment side of the equation.
Sunday started off with a lecture on program design. They started with a general overview of Mike’s thoughts/philosophies and progressed to more specific things they need to consider when writing programs for the client/athlete with knee or back pain. To wrap up the section, Mike showed them how to avoid overwhelm and figure out an ideal program based on the assessment. Rather than make the program creative, it helps to make it routine, take the exact limitations you learned from the assessment, and address them on as many levels as possible within their training. After all, there’s a lot more to addressing glute function than having them do some glute bridges pre-workout! After a brief intermission, they started what I feel was the most eye-opening section of the course, the actual training. We finished out the morning with some foam rolling, and dynamic mobility drills for ankles, hips, and t-spine then worked through a lot of core training progressions.
So Many Thank You’s
I think my family are the only ones that know how much time I put into blogging, doing videos, and Facebook.
It is great to hear that it is helping people.
Please do keep letting me know what you would like me to write on and help with.
More Kind Words
With the end of the year coming, I have been marking Muscle Imbalances Revealed exams like crazy.
Trainers, coaches, and therapists have been trying to get in their CECs and CEUs before the end of the year.
This is what a few people have said about Muscle Imbalances Revealed:
“Great review about the lower extremity from many perspectives and how it all ties together. It was great to learn different assessment and treatment techniques to use.”

“I will use Muscle Imbalances Revealed to rehabilitate my clients to full functional capacity. MIR has helped me look at the causes and not the symptoms, a holistic approach.”

I think that is it for this week.
Until next week.
Have a great weekend getting ready for Christmas.
