Our Choice for the Article of the Week
If there is one thing the fitness industry doesn’t lack it is conflicting information. Some coaches believe this while others believe that. Information crosses and leaves trainers scratching their heads lost in space. Not only does this leave our trainers dazed and confused but this can be passed down to their clients, which is “no bueno”. Nick challenges us to take a step back and critically analyze our position on 5 different training concepts. Do any of your beliefs conflict with each other?
