The Top 10 RTS Posts of 2012

I love the end of the year. Sure, sometimes I feel older than I should (I’m pretty sure that’s part of the aging process), but I also love looking back and seeing everything I’ve accomplished. With regards to my blog, I enjoy going back and seeing what posts were most popular, as it helps me […]

Stress: The Real Epidemic

The following is a guest blog from my good friend Dan Brown. Enjoy! – MR ————— I was doing some research on energy systems and was looking at differences between animals and humans (yawn). With a few clicks of the mouse the next thing you know I was watching a gazelle being devoured by a […]

Sacrifice and Hard Work in the Fitness Industry

Let’s be honest – the fitness industry isn’t for the faint of heart. As a trainer or strength coach, it’s not uncommon to work ungodly hours for what amounts to less than minimum wage. On the other hand, I think some people assume that those who are “successful” (however you want to define that) have […]

Mike’s Top 12 Training Resources

One thing that really pisses me off about our industry is some of the ridiculous “number” posts you see. For example, a few months back I saw a post that was something along the lines of “The Top 50 Fitness Bloggers” or something alone those lines. I won’t claim to be the all-knowing, but I […]

Who Does MR Train?

Last week about this time, I was having coffee with a good friend and former IFAST intern Eric Oetter. Eric is one of the most driven and curious individuals I’ve ever met, so it’s always great to have a chat and see where his head is at. Since we don’t get to catch up as […]

Happy Birthday Kendall!

One year ago today, my wife Jessica and I were blessed when our little girl, Kendall Ann, was born. This was obviously a life changing event. This little girl is just so amazing and someone I care so much about. And I can tell you, I’ve changed quite a bit as a result. Things that […]

My 2012 To-Do List

Those of you that know me know I’m incredibly goal-oriented. Quite simply, if I don’t have a goal, or if I’m not working on achieving that goal, I’m not a fun person to be around. Seriously, if I go more than a day or two without doing something productive for myself, I’m cranky, irritable, and […]

Two of the guys I like and respect the most in our industry are Joe Dowdell and Mike Roussell. Not only do they talk-the-talk, but they walk-the-walk as well. This week they’re both releasing FREE webinars, and today Joe is discussing how he developed his gym, Peak Performance, into one of America’s Top 10 Gyms. […]

Taking ACTION

Last year, I sat in a Mastermind Meeting with Pat Rigsby, and clearly remember saying the following: “My goal for 2011 is to help as many trainers and coaches get better than ever. As a result, I want to speak more in 2011 than ever before.” As the saying goes, you better be careful what […]

The Communication Mask

Things have been a little nutty around here – lots going on within Robertson Training Systems, IFAST, and just life in general. It’s weird, though – over the past 3-4 months, I’ve had this revelation of sorts. Between all the business ventures, my forays back into powerlifting, and really trying to be the best husband […]
