Learning On A Budget, Revisited
A few months ago I made a post called Learning on a Budget where I discussed www.strengthcoach.com and why I feel like it’s a good site to join (click here for that post). I was happy to see a bunch of people sign up, and I have received a lot of positive feedback thus far.
So why am I bringing this up again? Two reasons. First, more people read my blog now so I want to share the good word with people that may not have read the previous post and may not know about strengthcoach.com. Second, I was recently hired to be the assistant editor of the site. I am very excited because it is a chance to do work on something I believe in strongly. I will be working hard to keep up the high quality of the site and have plans to help take it up a notch.
For those of you who are not familiar with the site, start by reading my previous blog post. In a nutshell though, it’s a membership site with a huge forum run by Mike Boyle as well as an extensive article and video database that covers just about anything you can think of with regards to strength and conditioning, injury rehabilitation, sports performance, coaching, business, nutrition…like I said, really just about anything you can think of. Any time you have a question about anything, you can probably find at least a few articles that address it directly, and if you still want to learn more, you can ask a question on the forum and know that within a few hours you will receive a response from some of the leading names in the field—can’t beat that. It’s hard to really do justice to the site in writing, so you’re better off checking it out for yourself.
I hope you don’t disregard my endorsement because I am now doing work for the site. I have always spoke highly of the site, and until last week, I literally put my money where my mouth is by paying for my own membership myself. Being a new coach, I’m not is position to be spending money left and right, so I have to be judicious with where I choose to allocate it, and I have always felt this site was worth it. With books and DVDs, there’s a finite amount of information you can take away, but the beauty of a strengthcoach.com membership is that it’s really limitless in the sense that you gain access to such a wide variety of topics and can ask questions about whatever you want.
I’ll stop there, but I highly suggest you check it out. If you are not a member, I really think you are missing out. A membership costs $9.95 a month, which is less than four cups of coffee. There’s also a trial membership where you pay a dollar for a week, so you can take some time to decide if you want to join. When you consider the knowledge you can take away from the site, it’s really a no-brainer.
You can sign up for a membership HERE.
I hope to see you on the site soon. If you do join, please introduce yourself.
