My teammate, Nick Bellore(Seattle Seahawks), told me about a strength coach named Charles Poliquin that he had been studying. After my career was over, I decided to read Charles book "Modern Trends in Strength training" and it blew my mind. So I read it again and again. After reading the book for the 3rd time, I saw that there was a job opening at one of Charles training facilities in Chicago. I got my resume ready and submitted it at 1am, I was so excited! They emailed me back like 5 hours later. I drove out to Chicago for the interview. Didn't hear back for 4 months. Then one day out of the blue, I got a call and they wanted another interview. After this interview, I got the job!!! I interviewed on a Thursday evening and moved from Mt. Pleasant MI to Chicago and started that following Monday.
I spent 2 1/2 years there training both everyday people (General population) and professional athletes. I was working over 80 hours a week with many of them having 60 plus training hours in those weeks. I was gaining so much experience in such a short amount of time.
-After my time in the Poliquin center, I decided to move back home to Michigan for the birth of my first child with my wife Alison.
-Despite all the experience I had and the results I had gotten with clients, no one would hire me! I was actually forced to start my own business. I named it MECA (Michigan Elite Conditioning for Athletes).
I was getting good results but knew I could do even better and Charles Poliquin was the guy to help me. I started consulting with Charles and that took my training to the next level.
~Charles has trained and produced more Olympians (800+), across 23 different events, more world record holders, professional athletes in NFL, NHL, NBA, & Soccer, and got better results than anyone else I'd ever seen before.
~I had my first consult with Charles and what a difference that made! I immediately saw a difference in the results my clients were getting and new was where I needed to focus my time efforts and energy. Charles also had an entire chapter dedicated to him in Tim Ferris' best selling book "Tools of Titans". On the right is an interview of Charles from the series "Real London" that you watch just so you can understand just who Charles was and why I chose him to learn from.👉👉👉👉
