The Best “how to” Videos!

There are tons of instructional videos on youtube, some are good, some are bad.  As a beginner in the gym how can you tell if what you are watching is good or bad?  Let me help you!  Check periodically and I’ll have some new links pointing you to videos that I feel are good instructional videos.

For the first one: “so you think you can squat” by EliteFTS is one of a series.  “So you think you can…” videos are broken into 5 parts.  They also have “so you think you can deadlift” and “so you think you can bench”  These are the best instructional videos for these lifts in my opinion.

I have been an athlete all my life. I played football, rugby and wrestled throughout high school. I earned a dual athletic scholarship to Simon Fraser University for football and wrestling. I graduated SFU with a BSc. Kinesiology and a Certificate of Health and Fitness. I began working as a personal trainer in 2007 and positively affected the lives of a wide variety of clientele from athletes to retirees. I quickly identified that in order to really create change in people's lives I needed to be more than just an "exercise instructor"; I needed to be a good coach. I am very passionate about wholistic coaching to improve performance and lifestyle.

    1. Thanks Chris! Having a lot of fun with it for sure! I hope to be adding my own photos and videos relatively soon! But for now why try to re-invent the wheel. If there are really good vids out there I figure I can just help people find the good ones.
