Show and Go Review: A Personal Trainer’s Experience

Written on January 9, 2011 at 5:10 pm, by Eric Cressey

I received this Show and Go Review via email the other day and thought I’d share it with those of you who might be on the fence about whether or not this product is a good fit for you.

“I just read your recent blog post in which you mentioned sending Show and Go testimonials.  Well…it would be a travesty if I didn’t give you a shout out.

“I’m a personal trainer myself.  And after over 23 years of training myself and 16 years of training others, to say I grow “bored” with conventional weight training programs would be an understatement.  I first trained to augment sport (football), then I got into powerlifting, and really became addicted to it when I started bodybuilding.  I competed for eight years in the sport and did very well.  But…I outgrew it.  Yes…I was bored.

“I, like many others that I train, look to other sources to not only motivate me in my own training (mentally more than physically), but also to broaden my horizons as a trainer.  That is what led me to purchase your Show & Go program.  I have to say, Eric, it is the most comprehensive, integrated program I have ever used.  From the warm-ups, to the strength exercises, to the stretching, to the cardio enhancement….my strength, flexibility, conditioning, and muscularity all improved ten-fold.  And my bodyfat level went noticeably down without me tweaking my normal diet.  I even had nagging shoulder and low back pain that inhibited me from doing certain movements that are now gone.  I was able to deadlift weight I haven’t been able to use since my powerlifting days.  Plus, a couple of the core movements you include are ones I have never seen or done and I loved them!  I now use many of them with my own clients.

“One last thing to note…I very rarely get through a 16 week program.  I tend to grow bored and need a different style of training.  That never happened.  Not only that…I am starting a second go-round this week of it with a few of my own personal tweaks to it.    Great product, Eric!  Thank you so much!”

    I fully support what James has written. I am too in the process of doing Show n Go. I\’m a professional trainer (degree qualified) plus I hold a few lifting certs, etc. I don\’t have James\’ lifting background but I do know an awesome & comprehensive program when I see it.
    I have had great gains in my squat and bench (up about 20kg each) only just coming into the middle of phase2.
    I recommend to anyone – experienced trainers/athletes to the average joe to get on board and \’INVEST\’ in this program. This will provide you with a program for life – it\’s that comprehensive!
    Thanks Eric. Will provide better feedback when I have completed it.

    I fully support this as well. I first heard of the show n go program through Kevin Neeld(went to UMASS with him when he was in graduate school).
    I am extremely pleased with the program design as well as the results I have gotten out of the program. I am a competitive strongman and before Show n Go I was almost sure I needed to give strongman up because my lower back was nearly always in pain (not spinal, but from previous muscle strains and a bum hip). Now, I haven’t had lower back or hip pain since week 1.

    Also, I am currently a personal trainer and have applied a few of the training principles to alot of the athletes and other clients I train. It has brought some clarity to program design for me and how to do it efficiently. I also bought The Ultimate Off-Season Training Manual and it as well has helped me with my program design.

    Thanks Eric!
