This is supposed to be a "new" training method, does it look familiar?

What is he selling?

Can you figure out what kind of training he is doing?

I can't.

I can, apperantly he's selling news papers and magazines! Dude I gotta get a paper route thats what my training has been missing from the looks of it...

Tons of talk, and no training, seems to me hes either got no program to speak of or his program is simply somebody elses!

Looks like he's trying to Pavelize CrossFit.

CrossFit is open source, it is out there free, open to everyone with an internet connection. Much of it is based on things commonly known for decades in various coaching communites, and one of CrossFit's unique contributions is to bring these communites together. Many folks have independently discovered parts of what has become the CrossFit methodology. Some, who have open minds and are honest, find CrossFit and incorporate it while making their own unique contributions to it's continuing evolution. There are many, but folks like Robb Wolf, Mike Burgener, Jesse Woody, and Mark Rippetoe come immediately to mind. Others, the hucksters, will take what they like from these training methods, then re-package and sell them as their own brilliant discoveries.

Newton or Einstein or some other smart guy said that all progress in science stands on the shoulders of those who came before us. Honesty requires that we acknowledge that and give credit where it is due, but human nature is such that charlatans and hucksters will always be with us.

Dan, thanks for your insights.
That's the way it looks to me as well.
If he has done original research, and come up with this on his own, I'll stand corrected.

There is nothing new in [effective] training except new combinations of old ideas.

Lordy, how many times is the term "Fat loss" on that site. Think he's going for some Google ranking? :-).

Basically sounds like he's possibly put together some exercise circuits. Who knows, could be a decent program, but his hype marketing is certainly a turn off for a lot of folks. (though I bet it's reasonably effective).

An obvious affinity for lots of platitudes but no substance. Next time when I want to dry my hair, I’ll just stand in front of my computer and dry it from all the hot air coming out of my monitor.

I couldn't get the pop up thing to go away, and I didn't want to give any info.


That says *RED ALERT* right there.


This website did lead me to the thought:

Effective coaches/programs do not need to be marketed strongly online for cash. The people administering them are too busy training people to worry about online marketing.
