This Week on

This week is business week on Bruce Kelly wrote an excellent article called Ten Do’s for Building Your Fitness Business a few months ago and it has been sitting in my computer. I like the idea of theme weeks and I also like highlighting some good articles that everyone on the site should read or reread. Alwyn Cosgove and Jason Ferrugia’s The Business is one of those articles. I find myself referring back to that article frequently when people ask questions so we will also feature The Business as a Classic this week. In many ways I think the article is more timely now than when it was written a few years ago. Next up is an article from Pat Rigsby called Top 10 Ways to Build your Training or Coaching Business. Pat, Jim Labadie and Nick Berry are running Fitness Millions in New Jersey at the end of month. These guys really understand the business side of our industry and most of us could use some work there. You can get more info at

One Response to “This Week on”

  1. This is a terribly inefficient way to attempt to make contact, but perhaps I’m not terribly worthy of direct contact. I’ve read with great interest your “sports hernia” articles and cited them a great deal in my own blog about sports hernias ( I’ve had three surgeries (including one in Germany) for my own sports hernia and NONE of them have been successful. I’ve also done varying rehab schemes that provided no results and which I gave up on because I lacked confidence in them.

    I am now at a point where I need to find a new avenue for trying to get over my injury so that I can continue my sprinting career, but I have no idea where to go. I’ve become something of a sports hernia expert because of all the research, experience, and problems I’ve had with this, but I’m not entirely sure how I can best move forward at this point. It’s clear that I can’t just go somewhere and do a simple rehab scheme as it seems like no PT’s have enough knowledge on the complicated issue of sports hernias to be able to properly manage a rehab protocol for such an injury. I need to get back on the track, and I tried to run in a race recently only to reaggravate my groin.

    I now believe that surgery is nearly useless for sports hernia sufferers, and I want to believe that a really creative and properly designed rehab and strengthening period might fix the problem. But I have no one to turn to at this point for such a situation. I’ve spent so much money and time on this problem already, but I’m still as driven as ever to solve my injury and get back to running again. Any ideas on what someone like myself can do? If I paid you my soul, would you rehab me?

    Honestly, if you have any ideas and any time or interest, let me know your thoughts.
