World’s Top Group Personal Trainers and Coaches!

Dear Coaches, Trainers, and Fitness Enthusiasts,

Are you sick and tired of seeing sub-par training programs being delivered by local “trainers” and “coaches” claiming to be experts with their weekend certification and YouTube education?

How about all the infomercials touting the latest. greatest and most “insane” workouts ever conceived?

The fitness industry is becoming a scarier and scarier with all these self-proclaimed gurus and overnight trainers flooding the marketplace with their one-size fits all DVDs, bootcamps, and extreme group fitness classes.

Quite frankly, I’m fed up with all this nonsense. People are getting abused and overtrained, and don’t let them pull the wool over your eyes…people following these programs are also getting burnt out and HURT!

So, here’s what I did…

To help filter through the vast array of information available online and give you access to only what is really working, I decided to use my personal contacts here at Fitness Consulting Group and contacted THE top trainers and coaches and issued the a challenge – to come up with their best training program, in their own specialty (adult weight loss, fitness, and performance). In addition, that program had to be one they are using now to get huge results with their very own clients.

These trainers and coaches are degreed in the field and/or certified by REAL accredited organizations and are using sound, PROVEN, scientifically based training principles. Now they are going to share with YOU, what they are doing to get the people they serve phenomenal results.

Here’s what we came up with – Introducing…

The FCG Group Training Playbook

This collection of expertly designed training programs became The FCG’s Group Training Playbook, a compilation of time-tested, results-producing weight loss & fitness training programs from some of the world’s top fitness professionals.

Primal Conditioning

Jared Woolever

Jared Woolever
When I hear the word primal, I think about getting back to our grassroots. I think about good ole fashioned hard work that makes you sweat. Getting primal makes me think about getting back to what we used to do. Looking into developmental kinesiology, it’s easy to find certain patterns that are innate in every one of us. Did someone show you how to roll over as a baby? Did your parents show you how to crawl, stand up, and finally take your first step? I’m going to go out on a whim here, but I’m guessing you learned all of this on your own. Through trial and error, making mistakes along the way, and learning how to maneuver your body through three dimensional space, we all developed in a similar fashion. This is what I think of when I think of “primal”.

This routine is going to follow a natural progression from start to finish. Throughout the workout, notice how we go from the floor on our back and belly, move into a position where we’re on all fours, then we get into a kneeling stance, and finally we will stand. This is a natural progression on how we all learned to move from time of birth. First we learned how to roll over. Next, we started to crawl on all fours. After crawling, we started to take the first step into standing by going into a kneeling position. Finally, with many attempts, we learned how to stand. This is the natural progression we all learn, and the pretty cool thing about it is…we all do it in the exact same fashion.

Modified Strongman Training

Art McDermott

Art McDermott
Modified Strongman Training (MST) has achieved a certain level of popularity in the past few years. From the well-known TV show, “World’s Strongest Man” to Division 1 Football Programs and garage gyms across the world, MST presents challenges not normally found in a commercial gym.

Modified Strongman Training is unique in a few respects. MST varies from standard gym movements by challenging the body through multiple planes of movement, using both unilateral and bilateral phases. This can be referred to as “real world” strength.

Looking at a continuum of movements that would demonstrate the best transfer to the real world, standard gym machines such as the chest press or arm curl machines would be found at the bottom of the list. Olympic lifting would represent a large step up the scale. Body weight movements would be yet other level up. At the top of the “real world” spectrum would be strongman training. Dragging, lifting odd objects, pulling, loading movements, etc is a primitive as it gets!

That being said, Strongman Training can be flat out fun! Because of its very simple nature, trainees can identify and appreciate with the challenges, both mental and physical.

In our program design, the coach is free to using two methods to determine the completion of a “station” or round. One is based on time: 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off, etc. The other is based on rep count or distance.

Bootcamp Workouts

Charlie Levine

Charlie Levine
Charlie has been in and around fitness his entire life, from youth sports, to high school and college swimming, and eventually into the fitness industry. He started as a trainer in 2002 and was exposed early on to the trainers and educators of the Perform Better community. He branched out on his own in 2009 and since then has focused primarily on group fitness.

The people he trains are general population and many of them, starting from their late 20’s, have pretty much counted themselves out. They might not have 50 pounds to lose, but more often than not, they were just sort of holding on and slowly losing ground.

If you’re like Charlie, then you’ve bought a few e-books and other done-for-you workouts to use in your classes only to find that they are not so practical when the time came to use them. His chapter is a snapshot of how he currently runs his classes. It’s safe, fun, gets his clients results, and it’s fairly easy to teach. This does assume you have some equipment, but not so much that it will break the bank.

Favela Fit

Marcio Silva

Marcio Silva
Born and raised in Sao Paulo Brazil, Marcio Silva was a little fat boy who was more interested in reading and watching cartoons than participating in sports.

At the age of 12 he decided that it was time to apply some of his book knowledge to his life, and began to practice the Greek motto he had read: mens sana in corpore sano – “a healthy mind in a healthy body”.

With not much natural athleticism, a little pot belly and a lot of determination he started exercising, running and playing volleyball. That sport became his focus for the next few years, and he played in various local leagues and ended up working as an assistant coach for his volleyball club. Volleyball has remained a passion of Marcio’s to this day.

When he was 19 he received a full scholarship to study graphic design, graduated in the top five of his class and began a career in the field of Graphic Arts.

Marcio followed up on his long-term interest in martial arts and started learning Thai Boxing in his early twenties. That interest turned into 3 years of hard work, a few bruises and 2 competitive matches that he won, thereby finishing his apprenticeship.

In 1998 he had the opportunity to move to Canada and he grabbed it. While there were many challenges faced in making such a major re-location, including learning English (“I thought I could speak it before I came – boy, was I wrong!”) and adjusting to Canadian winters, the opportunities available to him made it all worthwhile. It was here that he got the chance to start a new career.

What had been a personal passion for many years – physical fitness – now presented itself as a career full of potential in the wellness field. Once again, Marcio chose to follow his heart, and the results went beyond his expectations.

With diligent training and many hours of study and practical application, Marcio has become a highly qualified coach. And for him, the learning never stops.

Over the past 25 years, Maureen has worked in the fields of Athletic Training, Physical Therapy and Performance Training at elite facilities such as Athletes Performance, IMG Academies, OPTI and the Athletes Compound.

Kettlebell Khaos Metabolic Meltdown

Jason Yun

Jason Yun
This program is all about cranking the metabolism up to race car speeds. We want to burn as much of your client’s body fat as possible while building as much lean muscle tissue as possible. The workouts in here are high intensity but low impact (no jumping), so they are perfect clients who prefer to stay on the ground.

These workouts are designed for the general population. It is an 8-workout program, it is best to perform 4 workouts over the course of 2-weeks, but can also be used as a 2-time a week program for 4 weeks. All of the workouts are based off of intervals. The main key on how hard the workout will be for you will be determined on your client’s beginning fitness level and how heavy of a kettlebell you will be using. For the workouts to be the most effective please make sure your client selects a kettlebell that is challenging and they are struggling towards the end or fail slightly before the end of an interval.


Hammer Down Program

Nathan Jordan

Nathan Jordan
I like many trainers grew up playing a variety of sports from soccer to baseball to hockey. My freshman year of College I played club soccer for The Ohio State University. I currently play Australian Rules Football for The Columbus Jackaroos Australian Rules Football Club. I first started lifting weights when I was 15 but did not get real serious until I was about 25 and then pursued my personal training certificate as well as a Bachelor’s Degree n Sport Management Wellness & Fitness Track. My five favorite exercises are the hex bar dead lift, barbell squat, box jumps, medicine ball slams, and alternating one leg squat hops using suspension straps. I do lots of exercises using the compound lifts, suspension straps, and kettle bells in all of my classes. I have trained all kinds of clients from Ironman Triathletes to grandmothers but my specialty is training woman 30-50 for fat loss and strength.

I have become a huge fan of adventure races so far I have done the Warrior Dash and Mud Ninja. I have also sponsored the local Rescue run to raise money for neglected animals. My slogan for my marketing pieces is From Average Jack to Tough Mutter. This is appropriate as my ultimate goal is to use my gym as a platform to prepare my clients for adventure races. This will help build camaraderie, my clients get amazing results, getting to know my clients, and having a ton of fun in the process.

6 Week Sprint Training Program

Robert McMullin

Robert McMullin
I use Sprint Training with my regular gym members and clients as well as my amateur and professional athletes.

This program is an intermediate program designed to increase your speed and improve your conditioning and muscular endurance.

I would use this program with an athlete who isn’t too experienced or who hasn’t done a lot of strength and conditioning at a more elite level. For athletes that are more experienced I have an advanced version of this Program.

I also have some training clients who I’ve worked with long enough that would be able to handle most, if not all, of this 6-Week Program.

The benefits of Sprint Training vary from helping you burn more calories in a shorter amount of time than the traditional 45-60 minutes of cardio on a treadmill or bike, helping you burn calories for a longer period of time throughout the day after your Sprint session, your body adapts to Sprint Training enabling you to workout longer and harder before fatigue sets in, and it helps improve your body’s ability to breakdown fat for better energy consumption and encourages weight loss.

The great thing about sprints is they can be used by anyone looking to improve their fitness level. They aren’t just for athletes.

The benefits you will receive are far more numerous and fat loss will be kicked up a notch as an added benefit.
