The History and Activation of Training

Chris Frankel
Bodyweight Exercise, Strength and Conditioning


As trainer, instructor, or strength and conditioning coach, your objective is typically to prepare your client or athlete to meet and exceed the physical demands of their purpose for training. Sometimes we forget that the workout is not the end goal, it is merely part of the process to a larger vision. Ultimately, the end goal is to build the physical and mental foundation of our clients so that they can get better at something else.


That “something else” may be being a better parent or grandparent by being able to play with kids or grandkids, making the JV squad, being more effective at work as a first responder or professional athlete, or just feeling more confident in general. Whatever the case may be, at some point the rubber has to meet the road. We design and deliver practice and training sessions to move people forward in their training process to achieve their goals.

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.
