The most memorable thought for me from Dan John’s book, Never Let Go, was something to the effect of “Sometimes, you just do what Coach says.”
Coach Boyle has a similarly memorable article about progressing from being a cook to a sous chef to a chef. The cook jut follows orders until he has enough experience to try things on his own.
There’s a lot of things I don’t know anything about.
I just wrote that cardio article simply based on what I’ve learned from others, and I pretty much am doing what they say to do.
When it comes to nutrition, I do what others tell me to do. I understand the principles and everything, and I know enough about nutrition to not sound stupid, but I am not particularly well read on nutrition and supplements.
Another topic that I know jack about is running a business. I don’t foresee ever really getting into a business without someone that is also invested in the business but knows how to run a business and can translate what I do to the general public. I just make the widgets. I really can’t explain it to the public folks very well.
So why so self-deprecating?
Well, when it comes to fitness business, Alwyn Cosgrove is somebody that a lot of people stop, drop, and listen when it comes to business. That’s my plan. I guess it’s time to learn and just be a Cook.
What is really interesting to me is that his model in many circles is considered one of the better models in America shifting towards semi-private and group training and away from one-on-one.
But I also think the medical folks that read my stuff should also listen in to Alwyn’s webinar next Monday @ 8pm EST. The reason is because whether it’s a source of cash revenue that every PT barks about or the earnest preparation for a new healthcare model where great clinicians can actually get paid what their worth, this Webinar is probably going to have some pearls for you too.
So here’s the details…….
