Spend 5 nights in Paradise Becoming Unbreakable

L-Sit in Costa RicaThe ill-effects of modern prosperity are eating away at the health of our society.
 
Many of us are slowly becoming weak, fragile, and mentally scattered (It’s no surprise when you think about the infinite number of distractions available at the touch of a button).
 
Essentially, we’ve lost our animal instinct.
We’ve lost the freedom to move around in our own bodies with total control.
We’ve lost the ability to move in a meaningful way.
 
And whether we know it or not, it’s slowly killing us...
 
The effects of physical weakness, stiffness, and fragility permeate the mind. When your mind is weak, it imprisons the body. It's a feedback loop of doom that steals your freedom — unless you take control.

BREAK FREE FROM PAIN, IMMOBILITY AND WEAKNESS

It’s not WHAT you do, it’s HOW you do it.
 
The devil is in the details. Many people are making mistakes during literally every training session that are moving them BACKWARDS. You might be thinking, “I already pay attention to the details,” but I would be willing to wager that 90% of the people reading this aren’t even doing push-ups properly. We are going to DIVE DEEP into the details of how the body and mind work together to produce total Physical Freedom.
  
Many of the tactics you will learn are completely opposite of what the mainstream fitness industry says you should do. But then again, that’s probably why most fit pros are always hurt and move like a brick wall.
 

Lunging with Tree Trunks
Up until now I’ve been forced to keep my coaching and courses “inside the box.”
  
There are regulations and practices that must be followed. Things you can say, and things you simply cannot.
 
Fortunately in Costa Rica, all bets are off.
 
I am so extremely excited to present to you — RAW and unfiltered — everything you need to become PHYSICALLY FREE. If you apply these lessons you will have a body that will do anything you ask it to do — fearlessly.
 
I'm ready to unleash every secret that I have learned over the last decade. From pain science and behavioral psychology all the way to advanced vision, breathing, strength, and mobility training.
 
You will leave with the skeleton key to physical freedom.

 

WHO IS THIS MENTORSHIP FOR?

 

If you plan on attending this retreat, plan on changing...
 
Changing the way you think.
Changing the way you move.
Changing…you.
 
This experience is designed to teach you about yourself. To recognize when you feel unmotivated to train (or to work). To identify when you feel trapped or paralyzed with indecision. HOW to apply strategies to help overcome these normal life obstacles.
 
Not surprisingly, these same lessons apply to life and training equally. Most people don’t realize it, but your ability to move has a MASSIVE impact on your life, AND how you think.
 
This is most certainly not for everyone. In fact, many of the ideas will challenge the way you think, and make you question everything you thought you knew about the human body. I fully expect a few people to get pissed off when I show some of these tactics and strategies for physical freedom…Squat with log
 
…because they are counter to just about everything you’ve ever read or been taught about “exercise.”
 
I am looking for people who have an open mind, who are ready to take the red pill. I’ll show you just how deep this rabbit hole goes.
 
After you have completed this training you will be be armed with the knowledge and ability to help ANYONE achieve their goals (including yourself).
 
If you are a personal trainer, or a coach who wants to help people achieve more—then this is going to be, without a doubt, the best investment that you could make in yourself and your career.
 
Not only am I going to show you how to become a master of the human body (and the mind), but I am also going to reveal the key concepts and strategies that have allowed me to run 3 successful businesses over the past 8 years and achieve the ability to retire before turning 30 years old. Of course, I have no plan on retiring, because this is all WAY too much fun.
 

Join me for week in paradise learning all of my most hard-earned secrets of physical freedom, eating quality food, and treating yourself well—the way you deserve.
 

I'M 100% COMMITTED, SIGN ME UP!

THE PHYSICAL FREEDOM EXPERIENCE

You are going to be physically and mentally tested. You will be a completely different person when you leave Costa Rica. This will be an experience unlike anything you’ve ever done before.

Because I want to create deep and meaningful connections with all of the participants, space is going to be limited to 30 people. Given my track record and sizable customer base, AND that this is the first course of its kind…

…I expect it to sell out in a hurry.

Expand Your Knowledge...

True Core Strength is a hell of a lot more than sit ups and planks.

Did you know there are 8 different TYPES of core strength alone? You’ll want to make sure you address all of these if you want to have real core strength (and a pretty rocking set of abs, if you’re into that sort of thing).

Aside from the many different types of core strength, did you also know that the core is “The Anchor?” It’s the anchor point for every movement you do, and I can’t wait to explain how solidifying the structure at your center of gravity has a compound effect to every joint in your body.

Full Body Systems Check: I have taken a ton courses on movement evaluation from a wide variety of extremely knowledgable therapists, trainers, martial artists, and movement experts all over the world.
 
These are a lot of GREAT systems—but like most things, fall just a LITTLE short of complete.
 
This evaluation is going to look at EVERYTHING. Joint ROM, Muscle Activation, Functional Movement, Compensation Patterns, Vision Assessment, Gait Assesment, Breathing Assessment…you get the idea, it’s a long list.

Become the Energizer BunnyEndurance Training is a big piece of the puzzle, but once again, I am shocked at how many people get it COMPLETELY WRONG. Sadly I see HOURS wasted weekly on inefficient, ineffective endurance training tactics. A few simple techniques for breathing and relaxation, combined with a variety of speeds, tempos, and rest periods will elicit rapid results so you can go forever—at anything.

I have a special place in my heart for POWER TRAINING. Power is the ultimate athletic expression. Just like PF Flyers promised in the movie the Sandlot “Guaranteed to make you run faster, and jump higher.”
 
While I won’t be selling you any shoes (you’ll be barefoot the whole time), I DO guarantee that you will be much, MUCH more powerful. This includes sprinting, jumping, throwing, punching, etc…Nothing makes you feel the spring and vigor of youth like power—and this power protocol can be applied to absolutely anyone, from beginner to extremely advanced. Many people make the mistake of neglecting power training, but it should be a significant part of your overall plan!
 
And that is just a taste of what you will learn...

You Will Also Experience a Massive Upgrade in the Following Areas:

  • Vision

  • Coordination

  • Rhythm

  • Balance

  • Mobility

    • Strength

    • Speed

    • Power

    • Endurance

     

    • Antifragility

    • Mental Toughness

    • Meditation and Mindset

    • Habit Formation

    Just look at this list: These are NOT things you normally see in a training plan.
     
    I’ve been teaching courses to personal trainers all over the world for the past decade—sadly, many of these attributes are COMPLETELY NEGLECTED in most training programs. This is extremely unfortunate because improving these areas will enhance EVERY area of your life.
     
    The opposite is also true, neglect these areas and your body (and your athleticism) will deteriorate rapidly. Ignore these and your body will age faster.
