Happy Friday dear listener. As an end of the week gift to you, Lawrence is bringing this episode back from last year.

Today Lawrence is joined by SBS Coach, SBS Academy Tutor and Lift the Bar Mentor, Stuart Aitken.

It's a historic episode as Stuart is our first ever Scotsman on the pod. Lawrence and Stuart actually recorded this while holding hands over Hadrian's Wall.

Stuart is here to discuss the importance of being evidence based and how it might be really important to PTs, but not that important to clients.

Quick audio quality note. Lawrence's mic inexplicably goes a bit odd towards the end of the show, sorry guys.

Like at the end of Indiana Jones when the Ark is opened and it melts the faces of those who look into it, the SBS Radio Archive is full of knowledge so powerful it can only be trusted to a select few. 

You dear listener are one of those few. Lawrence is bringing an episode from the vaults today and speaks with SBS Legend Chad Dolan.

Lawrence is joined by Chad Dolan today. Chad is the latest and greatest member of the Academy team and gives us an introduction as to who he is.

You can find Chad on Instagram: @ChadDolan and Snapchat: @ChadDolan and on Twitter: @MioDolan

Hold onto your earphones and keep children well clear. This episode features strong language and stronger opinions.

Lawrence and Patrick are here today with the debut episode of Fireside Rants. 

The guys are a bit rattled as someone has come into the Eat, Train, Progress Facebook page and been less than brilliant about their attitude. As such Patrick isn't a happy boy.

In this episode, the two take turns to take a swing at a few of their pet peeves online -Functional Patterns, Personal Trainers claiming that they can eliminate pain, and irresponsible advice about medication all receive a lashing in this episode. In the emotional outpour, the two get into the habit of talking over each other making timestamping this episode a bit more difficult.

As an added bonus, though, there is a point where Patrick gets so annoyed he don't talk his words so good no more.

Today Lawrence is looking at a big question. What does it actually take to become a successful personal trainer?

So what do you need to do?

0508: Hard, smart work.

0629: Continued professional development.

0752: Get good at personal training first.

0922: Have a client centred focus.

1039: People skills.

1152: View your first few years as an apprenticeship.

Now, if you're thinking about starting your journey to becoming a PT, what should you do?

1310: Start helping.

1350: Get yourself qualified.

1431: Invest in learning.

1447: Start loving the process.
