9 Tips for Having More Success with Gen Pop Clients

You’ve asked for it, so I’m about to deliver!

I’ve had a lot of people ask lately for a show that’s solely geared towards gen pop training. And while I don’t train that population as much these days as I have in the past, I’m hoping that doesn’t discount the 18-19 years of work that preceded it!

In this show, I’m going to do my best to not only educate, but entertain you a bit as well. Along with each point I’ve got a short story about a success or failure that I’ve had in the past, and how you can learn from it.

This was a really fun show to record, and I hope you enjoy it!


Show Outline

Here’s a short list of the 9 tips…

  1. Put Yourself in THEIR Shoes – (aka don’t be like Mike when he was younger)
  2. Don’t Put Round Pegs in Square Holes – Are the lifts you’re doing really helping your clients?
  3. Slow and Steady Wins the Race – How do you help someone lose 100 pounds? Or add 200 pounds to their squat?
  4. ANYTHING is Better than Nothing – What a cigar smoking client taught me about being a pro
  5. Find Ways to Connect – And the longest minute you’ll ever have in your entire life…
  6. Sometimes They Just Want to be Acknowledged – How 30 seconds of coaching kept a client from leaving IFAST
  7. Don’t Be Afraid to Challenge Them – One of the single WORST things you can do when a client is getting started…
  8. Don’t Let Your Programming Get Stale – Just like any relationship, why it’s so critical to keep things fresh
  9. Make Them Feel Stuff – Last but not least, the role of DOMS – and what your clients REALLY think about it!
