    Now, what is it? You've heard me talk about this again and again on the podcast guys, this is the first guide for strength and conditioning professionals, personal trainers, you can lump yourself in there too, and physical therapists that guide you through the sticking points in your career, whether that's about finances, whether that's how to get certain jobs, whether how to manage burnout, whether that's running a business. Even those of you that have written in and said, “Hey, you know, I feel like I invested tons of time in the technical knowledge and expertise, but I'm just not valued.”
     
    Guys, that's why the name of the course is Valued. We're addressing how you can overcome those things. We're trying to teach you how you can show or explain or demonstrate true value to your employer, either current or eventual, and most importantly, how you can get over the anxiety of asking for what you're worth.

    Here's another quick hit episode for you and today's episode is all about this... a lot of times there are people out there that if you're a really committed individual, you're a passionate individual, and you're somebody that has spent a lot of time and you have a lot of focus and faith and all that poured into your craft, there are a lot of people that will try to take advantage of that by the use of one really powerful tool, and that tool is guilt.  I offer you my own experiences in dealing with this on today's episode.

    John Welbourn is someone that simplifies, gets to the point, and like myself, has almost no tolerance for B.S.  This is a conversation I really enjoyed having with John and I think you will enjoy our conversation as well.
     
    John Welbourn is a former 9-year NFL starter and CEO of Power Athlete. He also created the online training phenomena, Johnnie WOD. John was drafted with the 97th pick in 1999 NFL Draft and went on to be a starter for the Philadelphia Eagles from 1999-2003, appearing in 3 NFC Championship games, and a starter for the Kansas City Chiefs from 2004-2007. In 2008, he played with the New England Patriots until an injury ended his season early with him retiring in 2009. Over the course of his career, John started over 100 games with 10 play-off appearances. He was a four year lettermen while playing football at the University of California at Berkeley. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in Rhetoric. John has worked with the MLB, NFL, NHL, Olympic athletes and Military. He travels the world lecturing on performance and nutrition for Power Athlete.
     
    Topics discussed with John today:
     

    * John's journey at an early age and how public shaming challenged him to feverishly pursue becoming a college football player
    * John covers what it was like training as an NFL lineman in and out of season throughout our conversation
    * The pivotal conversation that led John to have one singular goal in pursuing his education
    * The circumstances that led John to discern between good and bad information through training and education
    * How John helps his clients understand "attacking" the weights within explosive movements and compensatory acceleration
    * How the weight room helped John chisel away and remove all of the rubble throughout his career
    * The problems that face strength coaches today and why they're not in control of their own destiny

Customer Reviews

Myles Asiefu-Nesbeth ,

Highly recommended

I thoroughly enjoy this podcast it’s informative and looks at coaching from a deeper aspect than just training the athlete. Each episode is different in terms of the subject matter and that’s refreshing. Also the simplistic terminology makes it listenable to a wider audience outside of sports performance.

Chris Chavez Cronin ,

Highly recommended

As a young s+c coach/university student, this podcast has definitely helped my development not just as a coach but also in general as a professional.

Thank you.

Also, it would be great if you could speak to someone with experience in the UK as a S+C coach!

MaloneyP ,

If you work with people, this is for you

Have been following Brett’s work for a few years and this podcast follows suit.

A diverse selection of guests that you’re unlikely to get on many podcasts. Frank and honest conversations about a variety of topics allied to coaching, teaching and leadership.

Lots to take away for those that don’t work in S&C or fitness.
