FELLOW PROFESSIONAL:

Let’s be frank… This business is NOT easy.

You work long, hard hours… pour your heart and soul into your training… and then you often make far less than many other professions. Not to mention competition is STEEP, and growing every year. For far too many, “the struggle is real” … yet it does NOT have to be that way!

THE SIMPLE EQUATION THAT DETERMINES THE LION’S SHARE OF YOUR SUCCESS

Your results and even your income as a coach, trainer or even an athlete are primarily determined by ONE THING… your skill level.

The more skilled you are in coaching and training, the better the results you can get for yourself and your athletes… and the more likely they are to stick with you. Period.

Not to mention how many more referrals this generates for you.

So if ‘skill + application = success’ is the key equation for your bottom line, it’s clear you MUST maximize your training process.

We learned this the hard way, having paid a small fortune in various training and certification programs that never got us anywhere near mastery. Not to mention competition is STEEP, and growing every year.

For far too many, “the struggle is real” … yet it does NOT have to be that way!

GAIN THE CONFIDENCE YOU'VE ALWAYS
WANTED AND JOIN OUR TEAM TODAY!

If you’re like us, you’ve taken your share of “textbook” certifications and training programs—and yet, I’m betting they were NOT as helpful as you’d hoped they would be. In fact, I bet it was a HUGE let down when you got back into the gym and you couldn’t apply what you had just learned – because it was all “text book” knowledge.

You’ve probably progressed and improved in SPITE of all of that… due to hard work, passion and dedication to your craft.

But in this business, the difference between thriving and struggling is often at the margins—and you know deep down in your heart things should be better.

With no real framework or system out there, it’s no wonder so much of real world coaching, training and results feels so “hit or miss”—and why most businesses are a “revolving door” that bleed clients every single month.

We saw firsthand how ‘book smarts’ failed to move the needle and get results for real clients and athletes, and realized something MUST be done.

THE ULTIMATE GAME-CHANGER FOR FIT PROS AND COACHES COMMITTED TO RESULTS

To fix this situation, my partner Joe DeFranco and I—who like me had battled to the top of the industry and learned everything the hard way—decided to combine our 40 years of training experience.

We combined all of our “in-the-trenches” hard earned experience with the scientific research behind strength training, the most important training books and manuals, the knowledge from countless seminars, clinics, and conferences, and finally, we networked with the leading trainers and coaches in the industry – to develop our one-of-a-kind comprehensive training system.

More importantly, we threw out everything that most conventional certifications teach but FAIL miserably to deliver real-world results.

Over the years, we continually refined and verified that everything in the system actually delivered BIG TIME for 1000’s of clients and athletes.

Introducing

THE CERTIFIED PHYSICAL
PREPARATION SPECIALIST (CPPS)

And it’s quickly become THE most effective and easy-to-apply training system in the fitness industry today.

Enter the highly respected, industry-changing certification known as the Certified Physical Preparation Specialist or CPPS certification.

It’s the most comprehensive, easy-to-apply training system for rapidly advancing your hands-on training skills… whether you’re a coach or trainer, gym owner or athlete determined to be your best.

The proven CPPS blueprint and curriculum has given coaches, trainers, AND lifters from over 25 countries, Canada, and all over the United States, a proven training blueprint that is backed by science and developed in the trenches.

COMPLETE ATHLETIC DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM

The comprehensive curriculum for the CPPS certification is the complete Athletic Development System – this unparalleled curriculum is unmatched in the fitness industry!

Without a doubt, with the CPPS, you’ll get the confidence and knowledge you need to set yourself apart in an industry filled with ‘unqualified trainers’ and truly make your business explode beyond your wildest dreams.

It is Proven, Only the Strong Survive…

It’s no secret that the fitness and sports performance industries have become brutally competitive…

Nowadays, an individual can become a “trainer” after taking a weekend seminar and then open up a gym in your city, or across the street from you.

They may have more capital, or be under a bigger brand with powerful marketing machine behind them…

And this makes the quality of your training and overall skills more critical than ever. If there’s any doubt about your knowledge or skillset—it’s game over. They’ll walk next door to the nearest competitor and not think twice…

EVERYTHING
YOU NEED TO
THRIVE IN THIS BUSINESS

The comprehensive CPPS curriculum covers all aspects of strength training and performance, including:

  • Proper breathing for every key movement, performance, and recovery.
  • Rapid mastery of fundamental movement patterns.
  • Essential warmup and pre-movement preparation.
  • Proper strength training strategies for sports, size, and strength.
  • Power development to jump out of the gym and smash any opponent.
  • Simple speed fundamentals that teach mechanics for acceleration & max velocity.
  • The 7 critical components of effective program design.
    And, much more!

Now, if you think “I already know that”—I’m willing to bet you’ve learned or been taught at least one or more incorrect things in each of those areas. It’s not your fault—most of the industry has been behind the times.

That’s why we put so much effort into everything that went into the CPPS certification and curriculum in order to teach you ALL the essential skills for becoming a top coach, trainer, and gym owner.

A WINNING SYSTEM THAT WORKS
FOR EVERYONE ON YOUR TEAM

Having worked with thousands of individuals over the years, we’ve found three groups benefit most from this program:

GYM OWNERS

It’s a jungle out there and most owners live on the brink of failure, or make embarrassingly low incomes once all their expenses are paid. We’ve been there. Nothing is worse than scraping by each month, wondering how you’ll keep the lights on. The CPPS system will help you raise the overall quality of training at your gym, empower your coaches, help you retain coaches and clients, and keep you ahead of your competitors. Good clients can FEEL when a gym has high training standards and quality coaching, and they SEE this quality in their progress and results.

COACHES AND TRAINERS

Because let’s face it, nothing is worse than a coach or trainer who doesn’t know their stuff… or, who isn’t constantly learning and updating his knowledge and skills. The CPPS system gives you the best possible foundation, as well as advanced strategies that separate you from the sea of other coaches and trainers out there.

LIFTERS AND ATHLETES

If your training is important to you, it’s never wise to leave your success to chance or risk an unnecessary injury. No matter who your coach is, you can get results faster or reach peak performance as an athlete, if you learn what really works in the gym. Literally, all bases are covered from breathing to core movement patterns and beyond—you’ll avoid the common blunders that lead to imbalances, weaknesses, ineffective training or injuries.

The best part? Each of these groups feed each other, which means that no matter who you are—the CPPS program will create a ripple effect of winning culture in your gym, and gains for your entire team of coaches, trainers and athletes.

INSIDE THE EXTENSIVE CPPS VIDEO
LIBRARY YOU'LL DISCOVER:

ALL of the most powerful tools, techniques, and tricks every good coach and trainer must know are contained in each outstanding CPPS video module.

You’ll gain the competitive edge in your facility and in your area when you ‘learn-and-apply’ the science behind better movement and effective strength training for optimal performance for ANY sport or ANY goal in the gym.

  • The critical breathing tips in Modules 1 and 2 are guaranteed to improve every single lift you do in the gym and every move you make on the field. As you know, breathing is key to maximum tension and spinal stability—and incorrect breathing can lead to reduced performance or even injuries. Breathing isn’t always easy to teach… and even though these tips are stunningly simple, NO ONE knows them or is doing them!
  • Make this ONE tweak in how you train SPEED development, and your athletes will get faster, improve their running form, and call you the Coach of the Year! A lot of coaches mistakenly believe speed can’t be “taught” but that’s false, and in Modules 6, 9, and 15 you’ll see how to help clients make quantum leaps in their speed development!
  • In Modules 3, 8, and 11, you’ll discover our 5/5 Fundamental Movement Positions and Patterns that give you our exact regression and progression model that every client and athlete must master – BEFORE you can get them stronger, faster, or more powerful! Remember whenever an athlete hits a plateau, feels hurt or gets outright injured—they’re likely gone forever. This will keep your clients safe, progressing and healthy year-round.
  • Look over our shoulder – in Modules 8, 12, 13, and 14 – as we take coaches through our proven teaching techniques for the ‘BIG 3’ barbell lifts – the bench press, squat, and deadlift. These easy-to-apply tips for improving position, tension, torque, and range of motion work every single time! You’ll also learn the biggest ‘red flags’ to watch for to help correct bad or dangerous technique before it becomes a habit.
  • The ground-breaking CPPS warm-up protocol in Module 3 can literally change how effective a training session and improve the results an athlete will get! This progressive pre-training method gets the right muscles, working at the right time, and at the right intensity – for ANY exercise!

There’s a Reason Why CPPS Has Been Featured in Top Publications and Media Around the World… IT WORKS!

Check out this multi-page spread in Muscle Fitness Magazine:

It featured statements like:
“It’s a more comprehensive vetting process for trainers and strength coaches than anything I’ve seen in the industry to date.”“Smitty” and Joe D. have a combined 40 years of training experience and have worked with countless professional athletes. Their YouTube channels and DVDs are go-to resources for personal trainers everywhere.“They’re both highly successful businessmen and gym owners… and building a curriculum from scratch was a Herculean, time-consuming effort.”“Spending a weekend with Smitty and Joe D. was the most valuable thing I’ve done for my own professional development.”

And It’s Not Just Big Publications,
Some of the Top Trainers and Coaches in the World Rave About CPPS

Matt Tuthill DEPUTY EDITOR OF MUSCLE & FITNESS

"I LEARNED MORE IN ONE WEEKEND - THAN I LEARNED THROUGH BOTH OF MY PREVIOUS CERTS COMBINED!"

“It took me six months of study and review to get certified as a NASM-CPT and a year of reading the massive NSCA-C.S.C.S. textbook to earn that certification. Both of these certs served me well over the years and taught me new things, so I don’t mean to put them down as I offer this testimonial. With that caveat out of the way, however, I can say without equivocation that I learned more in one weekend under Jim Smith and Joe DeFranco than I learned through both of my previous certs combined.

I now possess a wealth of tools for teaching the bench press, squat, deadlift, proper sprinting mechanics, as well as warmup and breathing techniques. Considering the fact that it’s my full-time job to interview the very best and brightest in the fitness industry on a daily basis, I was absolutely shocked at how much brand new information Smitty and Joe D. hit me with.

These are men on the leading edge of training science, and more importantly, its practical application. It’s not enough to know anatomy and physiology. Understanding how to individualize programming and how to adjust for real-life situations is what can make a good trainer a great one. Smitty and Joe D. will teach you how to do just that. I can’t recommend the CPPS highly enough.”

Sean Hayes CSCS, CPPS. WWE STRENGTH COACH

"THE AMOUNT OF KNOWLEDGE THAT WAS COVERED IN JUST TWO DAYS WAS TRULY REMARKABLE!"

“The CPPS certification is by far one of the best learning and teaching experiences I have had in my young coaching career. The amount of knowledge that was covered in just two days was truly remarkable! The entire atmosphere made it so that all the participating coaches felt comfortable interacting with each other, which provided an even better learning experience.

Instead of having our heads in a notebook and a pencil in our hands, we were on the turf and inside the racks of the weight room, coaching one another and asking questions. I believe that’s what makes a good coach – having the ability to get your athletes to understand what you’re coaching them to do, and everyone learns differently – so the cues I picked up at the certification from coaches from all over the world was invaluable to my athletes.

The CPPS certification does a great job of making sure coaches are able to COACH these different drills and techniques, as opposed to just knowing them. That’s where I think this certification sets itself apart from others.”

Mark Ehnis CPPS OWNER, POWER STRENGTH TRAINING SYSTEMS

"WHY CPPS IS CHANGING THE GAME!"

“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – you must invest in your training and business knowledge to better serve the people you work with on a daily basis. You owe it to them. Your clients invest in you as a coach so it’s only natural – for the good coaches who actually care. When it comes to this area there’s no room for excuses or cheapskates. If you’re an athlete, then you must view your training as an investment, not just the upfront training membership.”

Read on to see why I say that the CPPS certification is changing the game…

It is a hands-on certification that allows the coaches in attendance to coach the other coaches and perform everything themselves (practice what you preach!). This automatically makes you a better COACH, not just a better exercise scientist.

The powerful network of coaches who want to go to the NEXT LEVEL with their athletes and their business. Everyone who passes the certification joins a private Facebook group where we collaborate on anything and everything. Having like-minded coaches to count on is POWERFUL!

Learning proven progressions and regressions for everything in the gym. This is how you train a variety of clientele of all backgrounds using the same thought process, training style, and principles. This is VITAL for any quality coach.

Billy Gunn WWE SUPERSTAR

"THEY DID A TREMENDOUS JOB!"

“I thought the certification was awesome! For me, being an old school guy and a veteran of professional wrestling, we accumulate injuries and nagging issues over time. Smitty & Joe showed us different ways to train to be more effective and remain pain free. They did a tremendous job showing us appropriate variations on the basics that keep me healthy, motivated, strong and training hard to stay in the game doing what I love to do.”

Dean Somerset BSC. KINESIOLOGY, CEP, CPPS, CSCS, MEPD

"THIS CERTIFICATION IS ONE-OF-A-KIND"

“The CPPS certification is hands down the best certification a personal trainer or strength coach could hope to get. While the theory aspect is amazing in and of itself, the practical components, systematic approach to training, and ability to see how you could implement all of the concepts while training everyone from juniors to seniors makes this certification one-of-a-kind.”

P.S. – I almost forgot about your ‘Fast Action Bonus’ – it’s called “Double Your Clients, Double Your Income” … and it will revolutionize your sales and growth.

Let me explain. Throughout this page, I’ve reminded you how important your skills are for producing measurable results and performance that keeps clients with you long-term. Given how many gyms and trainers struggle with retention, that’s a BIG deal.

Plus, when you’re the best trainer in your area, people talk. You’ll find yourself flooded with referrals from others you’ve worked with who sing your praises…

But I want to help you take things one step further, and become a ninja at GETTING new clients into your gym or training practice. That’s why I’ve enlisted the help of a guy who has mastered the process of helping gym owners, coaches and trainers ramp up their sales, acquire high-quality clients and grow their revenue.

He shares secrets he often reserves for his high-end coaching programs that cost thousands of dollars, including advertising, web marketing, referral systems, email, and more strategies you’re not using now. This is easily worth $1000 on its own (try booking a coaching call with this guy and you’ll see what I mean!), but you get it FREE when you register for the CPPS Certification Program TODAY.
