Want to learn more about Gym Movement? Announcing the Smarter Strength E-Class
“The best teacher is the one who suggests rather than dogmatizes, and inspires his listener with the wish to teach himself.”
– Edward Bulwer-Lytton
This quote is something which really speaks to me, it guides me, it drives me.
My name is Adam Glass. Depending on who you ask, I am many things.
“the grip guy”
“the gym movement guy”
a personal trainer
a strength coach
someone who has inspired a lot of people
someone a lot of people wish would just shut up
a combat veteran of OIF
the proud daddy to two english bulldogs…
and what I want to be for you is a teacher.
I want to teach you a new method of fitness and training – something unlike anything else on the planet. Those of you who know what I do know that I am doing things very differently than other people. You may or may not know I am helping others achieve incredible results. You may or may not have tried some of the things I have offered in the past. You may have possibly tried some of the material in my DVDs.
I have some questions for you:
Do you think that right now you are doing
the very best that can be done in order to make
your body fit, strong, and healthy?
Do you see any room for improvement?
Are you HAPPY with your current results whatever they may be?
For years I was. I thought I was doing the very best that could be done. I believed I was training on the cutting edge, I was following the programs of (who I thought were) the very best trainers in the industry.
I had direct access to some of the very top men in my favorite hobby. Perhaps you have heard of some of my old coaches – Pavel Tsatsoline founder of the RKC, Dennis Rogers world famous strongman, Brett Jones corrective exercise expert, and Stanley “Stainless Steel” Pleskun world famous strongman. I was certain I could not have found better men to train me to achieve my goals.
In September 2009, I learned I was wrong. While these men are in fact excellent trainers, coaches, and mentors- they were not the best possible candidate to train me. I learned:
I was the best possible person to train me.
And you know what? They are not the best possible coaches to you, neither am I. YOU are the best possible candidate. You may not know that right now or you may not believe that.
“Believe that” is a key statement. The fitness industry has done a wonderful job conviencing YOU that you are not qualified to run your body. That YOU don’t know enough or you are not responsible enough to tackle your fitness goals.
Guess what my answer is?
No matter how smart, how educated, or how skilled someone else is, they are still inferior to you when the task is run your body.
Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.
– John F. Kennedy
I would like to share a few beliefs with you:
I believe you possess the capacity to do amazing things with your body, provided you are willing to be the one to make them happen.
I believe you are the most capable, most qualified, and ultimately most responsible person you will ever meet to run your body.
I believe it is my responsibility as a teacher and as a coach to teach you HOW to think, not to teach you WHAT to think. I believe the person who understands how to think will be very capable of deciding on their own what to think.
I believe by educating you right now, I am literally saving you years of stagnation and slow progress.
I believe I can teach you the absolute safest, most sustainable, most reliable training system ever discovered, a system unlike anything else in the world.
Tell me if this sounds like something you are interested in….
- Doing better every single workout, in every single movement. By better, I mean lifting more weight, doing more reps, and working faster, easier than you ever have before.
- Being able to progress on your goal movements as often as you wish, to include every single day! As an example- I pinch lift every day. In fact I am able to pinch lift typically 4-6 types of pinches in excesses of 100′s of reps every single day. Without injury, without strain, without soreness.
- Adding upwards of 8 lbs of fat free mass in the next 30 days.
- Losing anywhere from 1 to 5 inches off your waist line in the next 30 days.
- Reducing your body fat mass anywhere from 2 to 5 pounds in the next 30 days.
- Adding up to 100 lbs to your barbell deadlift in the next 180 days
- Adding well over 100 lbs to your back squat in the next 180 days
- Adding at least 30 lbs to your bench press in the next 50 days
- Resolving aches and pains, maybe even for injures you have had for years
This is actually just the averages of my clients I see day to day at my gym Movement Minneapolis. I have had distance clients who exceeded these numbers by truly unbelievable jumps.
You see, the problem is we don’t even know how good we can be!
Most fitness education systems are centered on bad starting points, scientific dead ends, and absurd dogmatic stances concerning the human body. It’s not wonder so many people are frustrated, everyone is telling you how you need to listen to them, shut your mouth, and do as they say. The rest of the industry is always right, they are better than you or I, and they have the piece of paper to prove it…but not the results!
My problem with a lot of the so called leaders of the fitness industry is their personal results down right suck. If they knew how to properly train, wouldn’t you expect them to have outstanding results for themselves?
I am not a leader of the fitness industry. I am competitive athlete and trainer. You can see very plainly how much I know just by looking at my contest results. I compete in a sport where my ability to train and progress is tested right on the platform.
In one year, I have went from not even being in the top 50 pinch lifters in the world to being #10. I added over 65 lbs to my two hand pinch, most men have added less than 15 lbs in one year.
In one year, I went from being hit and miss closing a #3 COC to mashing the #3.5 for reps. Before 2011 ends I will close a #4 COC and certify on the 3.5 with the credit card set.
I currently own official world records in the 2″ vertical bar deadlift as well as the half penny pinch lift. This is what I did for myself in my sport. (I also have unofficial strength feats that NO ONE has ever done before or has done since.)
I also added over 18 lbs of lean mass to my frame while cutting my body fat percentage in half. This is all documented right here on my website, feel free to look around.
What have I done for others?
How about a simple statement of averages: my average client has lost over 25 lbs of body fat in 16 weeks, has added over 50 lbs to their deadlift, and increases their shoulder measurement by 3.5″.
How is this possible? It’s rather easy: I educate them on how they can best train themselves. I have a simple agenda. As soon as you hire me, I work as quickly as I can to make myself obsolete. My goal is to be the last personal trainer anyone ever hires. My goal is to be the last coach you ever work with.
Effective? Absolutely, without question!
But I already know about the Gym Movement Protocol, what can you teach me now?
I have invested a lot of time and work into parsing and improving the protocol.
In fact, we have evolved the system so much I can honestly say it is very different than the information I first presented back in Oct 2009.
We are busy. The Movement Minneapolis is working with clients every single day perfecting the application of the protocol. New discoveries have been made, which have dramatically accelerated the curve on how much faster we have been able to achieve personal records, cut fat, and add muscle.
Once again, if you follow my training with any degree of attention you will notice my progress is way faster now a days than it was even 9 months ago. Many of these concepts and applications were unveiled at the Smarter Strength workshop, and even very seasoned Gym Movement users such as Mike T Nelson (a true scholar of biomechanics) and Logan Christopher told me I caught them completely off guard.
So here is the deal:
I am teaching a 4 week E-Course on Smarter Strength.
In this 4 week course, I will teach you:
the essentials of program design
how to lose fat safely and keep it off
how to add lean mass
how to smash your best performances daily
how to never get hurt again in the gym
and how to achieve maximum performance on any game day.
The course will be taught using video lessons, conference calls, and emails. In total you will have over 10 hours of content, all of which will have immediate application to your fitness program from day 1. You will have full access to the material after the course, allowing you to return as often as possible to get all of the fine points. At the end you will know how to formulate a game plan to get EXACTLY where you want to go, no matter how far away it seems to be.
All lessons will be recorded and stored digitally, so your personal schedule will not be a factor. There is plenty of time between lessons to allow you stay on top of all required information and home work. Oh yes, there will be homework. Repetition is the mother of teaching, you will be applying this information immediately. You will be taught on day one how to get the best workout of the year. Your very next workout will be just that- incredible.
I like smaller groups. I like to be able to communicate with my students and clients, and I like them to know they have my attention when they ask a question.
I am going to allow 15 people to sign up. That’s it.
I know a lot of you will say you are in, but you will dilly dally about and wait to the last minute. I also know some of you are deadly serious about your results, and you are ready to go.
I reward action. I appreciate those who know the value of acting fast.
The first two people who sign up are going to get in for free. You will be refunded your course cost. In fact I am going to throw in a bonus gift for you, you are someone who I need to get to know.
The next 5 who sign up are getting the course for $99 dollars. After you register I will be sending you back $100 dollars for your fast action.
In the next 24 hours, the course sign up will be $199 dollars. That is over 10 hours of material, plus email access.
At hours 25, the price goes to $249…but I imagine all 15 seats will be filled by then.
I only want to work with those who want the best for themselves.
This E Course is not for you if:
you are happy with your current progress
if you are ok with chugging along
or if you are ok with following the plans someone else laid out for you.
This course is for those who are willing to lead themselves and unwilling to follow anyone else. If that is you, I want you in my class.
Smarter Strength is SOLD OUT.
The next class will begin forming on 15 Oct 2011
