Achieve Faster Results with Bodyweight Training:
12 Bodyweight Training Tactics to Increase the Training Stimulus
without adding Training Time


I am so thankful to you and your teaching. I learned a lot. Before taking your 
workshop I could not imagine doing a single pull up. After attending your 
Bodyweight Training workshop I have gained a lot of strength.

The FPM Bodyweight Training Specialist program offers science-based yet extraordinary
practical tools to master the following common scenarios encountered by
strength coaches and personal trainers:

  • It is a challenge to “fit in’ all the exercises into the training program that the client should be working on.

  • The client overall has little time to train (1-3 times per week).

  • The client needs a new training stimulus to make further progress but increasing the time to train is not an option.

  • The client is overtraining and you need to reduce the training time without losing gains.

  • You don’t have a lot of time to create written training programs, yet you want to help your clients achieve the best possible results (faster!).

Most traditional bodyweight training courses focus on teaching a lot of different exercises or proper execution and program design of a limited number of exercises. 

In contrast, the FPM Bodyweight Training Specialist program focuses on selected techniques that provide your clients with a stronger training stimulus without adding training time.  

The FPM Bodyweight Training Specialist program consists of two 8-hour days of training that can be attended in any order.

To achieve the status of specialist, an optional multiple choice test must be completed after both days of training are completed.

Great workshop for anyone looking to add that extra "umph" to their current program. Big changes don't need big steps. This workshop and program is proof of that.
