Standing on the Shoulders of Giants

Last January, while at the T-Fest in Washington, D.C., I met this “kid.”  At first, he was kind of pesky; he asked a lot of questions, and was really clingy.  Over the course of the weekend, though, he started to grow on me – from unwanted pest to welcomed guest.

Here was a “kid” who had taken out a line of credit just so that he could take the next step as a fitness professional.  This “kid” had flown cross-country from Montana to learn from some of the best in the business and expand his professional network.  I wasn’t the only one who was impressed; guys like Alwyn Cosgrove, Mike Robertson, TC Luoma, Ryan Lee, Mike Boyle, Craig Ballantyne, Jason Ferruggia, and Bill Hartman have taken a liking to him, too.

Now, 15 months later, he can call or email any of us anytime he wants advice about the business of fitness or a client of his who has issues outside of his scope of expertise.  AND, his clientele has grown exponentially (including some solid athletes and well-to-do clients), enabling him to open his own training studio.  AND, he’s published several articles online at (among other sites) T-Nation, and is on the advisory board for a major print magazine.  AND, he’s gone from some “kid” to a legitimate force in the training world who is going to be successful for a long time.

Remember the name: Nate Green.

Not too toot my own horn, but I’ve done quite a bit in the fitness industry for only being 25 – and Nate is well on his way to doing the same because he learned from the mistakes I made – and the mistakes all the guys I listed above made.  To that end, I get a ton of emails from up-and-comers about what it was that I did to get to where I am – and I pass along a lot of the advice that I’ve given to Nate.

Bright guy that he is, Nate recognized the value of all the information he’d accumulated from several mentors, and decided to pull it all together in the form of a ten audio interview: Standing on the Shoulders of Giants.  This set includes interviews with some of the brightest minds in the industry:

-Ryan Lee

-Jim Labadie

-Alwyn Cosgrove

-Mike Boyle

-Lou Schuler

-Susan Hill

-Pat Rigsby and Nick Berry

-Craig Ballantyne

-Bill Hartman

-Chris Shugart

I have over 150 business-related emails from Alwyn Cosgrove saved on my computer right now, and I can assure you that Alwyn’s interview alone is worth the entire price of this DVD set.

If that isn’t enough, through Monday, you’ll also get $147 in free bonuses in the form of audio interviews with Jason Ferruggia, TC Luoma, and I.

If you’re a fitness professional, this isn’t just any old purchase; it’s an investment.  I’ve listened to every one of the interviews, and they’re all fantastic.

All the Best,
