There is a lot of information on the internet that can be very confusing, both for the aspiring coach and trainer, and the general fitness enthusiast. At times, it is difficult to realize who is who, and what is what in regards to whether or not someone knows what they are talking about. For those who are looking to align themselves with those who walk the walk, I’ve dissected the fat and got straight to the meat of things in this short resource section. Since I fully believe in subscribing to only a few amount of “mentors” or smart people, I’ve intentionally made this list short. Don’t get it twisted however – there is no doubt a great handful of trainers and coaches that live outside of this list as well!
