Publisher's Summary

Unlike your predecessors, it’s now possible to retire from a long and successful career as a strength and conditioning coach, personal trainer or group fitness instructor. These professions have earned the respect of other fields and are now collectively considered a legitimate career path. Being a trainer or coach is no longer viewed as just a hobby. 

With all of the available training information, you’d think there’d be more about the how-tos of coaching. There are countless books on theory, access to thousands of research papers and you can attend a continuing education event every weekend, but who’s teaching you how to be a coach?  

Coaching Rules covers the six biggest obstacles you’ll face when pursuing success in the strength and fitness profession: complacency, egotism, poor communication, lack of connection, overcomplication and client attrition. 

To a young coach, this book will be a sturdy platform to begin your new career. The seasoned coach will find subtle reminders, fresh perspectives and reassurance that you’re not alone.

A FITNESS COACH MUST READ❗️

I have been in the fitness industry since 2005 and over those many years have put together a list of books and articles that I re-read annually. Some even biannually. This book is definitely going in there. This book should be required reading during ever CPT and all other movements certification programs! Brendon, thank you! -Coach Dwayne Walter, CPT, BCS, Pn1

Phenomenal read

I received a copy of this Audio book through a contest on Twitter. Super happy I was able to win! The book was a phenomenal read. Very easy to follow along and apply every day. Being a trainer is more than just exercises. It’s about being a great person that the client will enjoy being around. Great job Brendon! And kudos to everyone at MBSC!

Excellent Read for All Coaches

Just finished Coaching Rules by Brendon Rearick.  Really well done.

I've been coaching youth sports for 21 years and regret I hadn't read (or listened to, as it may be) more books about coaching before the last few years. I now find myself more prepared, deliberate and thoughtful. That is the main reason I wanted to read this book. Not to become a strength coach but I hoped that most of the book would apply to all types of coaching and it didn't disappoint. As a pleasant unexpected outcome, I found myself with a deeper understanding of my MBSC experiences and relationships over the years since I started training there with a young enthusiastic strength coach Brendon Rearick.  

Brendon has prepared this book in such an organized and articulate manner.  It includes many great thoughts, rules, & quotes with the explanations behind them and ways to implement them in your coaching. I think this book would be an asset to any coach looking to further their methods, techniques and toolbox.

Trainer/Strength Coach Bible

Brendon has made such a positive impact on my career as a personal trainer. I had already been a personal trainer for a decade when I met Brendon. I thought I knew it all but it turns out I knew almost nothing. Since meeting Brendon I feel like I have digested decades of knowledge in only a few short years. A lot of the knowledge he taught me is boiled down and streamlined in this book. I wish I had this book when I first started my career. This is a must for any new trainer or strength coach. It’s also a must for anyone that has been in the business for sometime and thinks they know it all, like I did. If you want to level up in the fitness industry, LISTEN TO THIS BOOK.
