Strength Faction

Comments

Thanks for having me on the podcast yesterday. This is what I couldn't think of the name of yesterday.
An Open Letter to members of Strength Faction old and new, I must admit before you read this, I had to google what an open letter was and to make sure it was used in the correct context. I also was the guy who took extra PE/Weight training classes when I could have taken typing classes and/or classes to help me with grammar and writing in general. I made it through college by changing a lot of oil and fixing cars in exchange for “help” typing my papers. And almost not passing my final comp for my master’s degree because I quote the professor after my 3rd attempt “man Patrick you really know your stuff but you just can’t seem to write it properly on paper”. Read this for what it is and not how it is written. Although I am not currently in the Strength Faction (SF) I was for about 2 years prior. The SF is still in me! I started with SF I believe on their third semester/session. I spent 2 years listening and re-listening to things I already listened to. Reading and rereading lessons that the coaches had put out. I still to this day go back and relearn things that were discussed over 18 months ago. So, who f**k am I and why am I hunting and pecking my way around this keyboard to type this open letter to members of SF? My name is Patrick Hoiler and I am the owner of a small member only gym in southern Maryland Kinetic Performance. I am now 2 years removed form my previous career as a teacher and coach for the 16 years. I also entered this game in different situation, or should I say less traditional way most coaches do. I was a teacher and a coach so that part was still the same, trying to get the best out of people for their particular life situation/circumstance. Not to mention quitting my career to start my own business with a wife and 2 daughters. The details of my past or me is not the focus of this letter. What SF can do for you is! I could not be where I am today without the help and support for Chris, Mike and Todd (as well as all the other kick ass mentors and professionals they have brought on to help us all navigate the process of bettering ourselves as coaches). There is not a day goes by as a now a business owner that the SF is not apart of my daily thoughts. What to do when this happens, or how do I handle this situation. Everyday I encounter something that was covered in one of the lessons provided. Points of emphasis on my experiences with SF and how it helped me to move in the right direction. 1. The Faction will give you the tools necessary to help you become the best craftsman or women you can be. The difference is will you use the tools and more importantly how will you use them. You can have the best set of Snap-on wrenches in your garage, but they do no good sitting there. Your workshop could be the biggest and brightest with the top machines, but a machine or tool only sits there; the worker, the craftsman is the one who must use the tools and they need to used correctly. Don’t try and build a birdhouse with socket wrench. Know when and how. Don’t know when or how… 2. …Be humble and ask for help. I don’t know why this seems so hard for people. I know at times we don’t want to admit we might not know something but if truly want to improve you should be asking a lot of questions. If the person you asked treats you lower or different because you asked a question, I’d think about the purpose of my relationship with that someone. A great mentor or leader will understand and teach. “Never look down on somebody unless you’re helping them up.” Jesse Jackson “Pride makes us artificial and humility makes us real.” Thomas Merton 3. NEVER Stop learning – Show me someone who is satisfied, and I’ll show you a loser. Once you think you are there, you will be behind. If you have made it to the top of one mountain, awesome. Now go find another mountain to start your assent. SF gives you this opportunity. SF will bring together other coaches to give you this opportunity. Be open minded to other philosophies and beliefs. I guess my point I am trying to make is just because I am not a part of SF right now, it doesn’t mean SF isn’t a part of me. The 2 years I spent listening, reading and interacting as put me in the position I am in today. Besides my faith SF is the main reason I was able to start my own journey. The coaches, people and individuals you will meet along the way because of SF will be the road signs to help you navigate your own journey. Take the tools they (SF) give you and USE THEM. Take the time and listen, if don’t understand ASK QUESTIONS. The bigger the root system, the stronger the integrity the more growth will happen. NEVER stop learning! THANK YOU STRENGTH FACTION!
Can't express in simple words on a post what Strength Faction has done for me. Waaaay too much to list. But know this, they care they are there for you and they respect you! Who else would you want to surround yourself with?

Strength Faction. Coaching for coaches. Transformation. Community. Education. Join the Faction!

Strength Faction is the only resource of its kind—it’s where strength coaches and personal trainers go to get coached, be a part of an awesome community and learn to hone their craft. This isn't another bullsh*t program. This isn't a library of videos and articles to aimlessly wander through. This is a real coaching program for real strength coaches and personal trainers.

CAN YOU WRITE AN ENTIRE PROGRAM FOR A CLIENT IN ONLY 6 MINUTES?!
.
It’s a challenge we issue to our Strength Faction members at the beginning of our program design curriculum
.
It’s not random though
.
The challenge comes from a real life situation when Faction co-founder @chrisbeyondstrength only had 6 minutes to write a program for a client that was arriving at the gym
.
And when we say program, we don’t mean workout...we mean an entire 4-6 week program
.
Guess what? He did it
.
Just how in the great blue hell did he do that? We had the systems in place that make program design simple, fast, and efficient
.
So, there’s the challenge for you
.
Set a timer for 6 minutes and see if you can get an entire program written
.
If you can’t, or you can’t even come close, your system needs work...a lot of it
.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
.
It was an incredible first week in the Summer ‘20 Faction!
.
And our folks are kicking unreasonable amounts of ass already
.
Can’t wait to see what these 17 weeks of summer bring!

It was a packed house for the first Strength Faction coaching call of the summer!
.
Great to see so many new faces and so many familiar ones returning for another great 17 weeks together
.
What a great conversation about setting our visions and managing what we can manage right now. This group is going to be a crew of ass kickers!

Newest episode of the podcast is live on SoundCloud and Stitcher!

@showdub is the man and you’re going to love this convo.

You’ve heard the story about the Big Rocks, right?
.
Take care of the big rocks, the priorities, first and then fill in with all the smaller stuff
.
When ya do all the things, big and small, there’s always time for a beer
.
But here’s the thing about the big rocks right now...they’re moving targets
.
With how tumultuous the landscape is right now, it’s tough to dial in on consistent big rocks for extended periods of time
.
Instead we have to be constantly keeping our thumb on them and re-evaluating every day or every week
.
So, you still gotta keep prioritizing your big rocks and acting on them
.
You just have to be re-evaluating more frequently
.
Keep doing that and keep taking action
.
