Alwyn Cosgrove is one of the most respected minds in the fitness industry. I like his take on “fitness research”.
Our gym trains people in the real world and sees real world results.
In fact – we don’t even look at research initially.
First – we see what works in the gym – in reality.
You aren’t seeing studies looking at self-limiting exercises performed in a circuit format with explosive lifting, TRX, kettlebell and sandbag exercises … with interval training finishers using sleds and ropes.
So we don’t look for research to tell us what to do — we’re looking for research to explain why, so we can go back and upgrade our programs.
