Welcome to another information packed edition of LTB magazine.
This issue sees the exciting inclusion of issue 2 of the amazing Motivator from Habitry (Usually a $20 product in it’s own right) and we are thrilled that the LTB magazine is the new home of the Motivator. Coach Stevo and Omar’s work on motivational science is incredible useful in underpinning everything we do as personal trainers.
We also welcome Michael Goulden, Jean-Claude Vacassin, and Nick Tumminello to our list of contributors, along with many others. As always, we have you covered whether you are a mobile trainer, work online, a facility owner or based in a private or commercial gym with articles on a variety of subjects.
Chris talks about immediacy, his word of the year so far, Gregg kicks off the first of 2 articles on his pet subject, autoregulation, and we have real life experiences from our LTB members throughout. Joseph Agu and Cathy Macdonald make a return appearance with more on nutrition and communication respectively and the Shredded By Science guys talk social media. As always I struggle to pick out favourites and it’s difficult not to list everything as it’s all so good!
With the change in structure this quarter our review section has changed slightly, including some gems on the things covered that mean you can benefit from reading the section even if you didn’t make the events.
