I recently got an email from fellow coach, and good friend, Al Kavadlo about his new book 'Zen Mind, Strong Body'. Long term followers of the blog probably know some of Al's work, he's typically known for bodyweight callisthenics but this new book goes deeper than that. Rather than a focus on technical coaching and specific exercises it covers the mindset, preparation and daily practice needed to be successful over the long term.
I think that technical coaching and programming has it's place in health and fitness but the ultimate goal of any coach should be to encourage people to become empowered to develop their own approach. If you're looking for a new addition to your fitness library then I recommend picking up a copy. It's also currently on sale at just $7.99!
