Real World Physique Training - A Panel Discussion

What if you and your clients could achieve both a stunning physique and exceptional real-world strength—without having to compromise between form versus function?


That’s actually within reach, and you can find out how when physique competitors Jordan Ponder and Micki Pauley discuss how they use strongman training to achieve both performance and aesthetic gains. Both are experienced coaches who have not only achieved this ideal mix for themselves, but every day help clients toward this goal as well.


Jordan and Micki come from very different worlds and train very different populations, but they share a new take on strongman training that is getting results across the board. Micki shares her insights from training local men and women at her gym in West Virginia to look better and move better, while Jordan shares what he's learned from training firefighters in Milwaukee to save lives and be safe on the job.

A career as a coach or trainer is a never ending opportunity to learn, grow, and re-invent yourself.


You don’t get to pick the problems you solve because everyone who you come across is different: Different genders, ages, fitness levels, disposable time, disposable income, and almost always unsure of their commitment.


Here on Coaches Only we update the content regularly, we go in lots of different directions, and we engage with experts in all walks of life so long as they help coaches and trainers in pursuit of a fulfilling career.


There are no simple answers to how to be a good pro. No one can sell your services for you. There is no silver bullet for success.



That’s why you should sign up, be present, and when the opportunity arises, also take the initiative to contribute to the conversation.


Coaches Only is for independent coaches and trainers who believe in the value of their work and have a love of this industry.


Coaches Only is for professionals who strive to make a career that lasts, has impact, and rewards people who work hard at it.
