Rule #1: Do No Harm

“If it looks like shit, then it is probably shit!”

I love that Mike Boyle quote referring to training and technique. As professionals in the fitness industry, whether you are a personal trainer or a strength and conditioning coach, we have a RESPONSIBILITY to ensure the safety of our athletes/clients.

Do No Harm is Rule #1 is and always will be and probably the most important thing you can ensure as a coach. Ensuring proper technique, well thought out progressions, and appropriate exercise selection for their fitness level and health will allow the athlete/client to get the most out of their training. Improving athletic performance comes second.

No one should ever get hurt in the weight room!
