To begin this post, here is some information on the event. I attended the CanFitPro #WorldFitnessExpo hosted in Toronto, Canada from August 18th to 20th.
I was not at all prepared. I went without a backpack. Stupid.
I went without food. That’s smart. It’s easier to buy food at a grocery store once you’re there.
I stayed at the Delta next to the conference. Smart move!
I didn’t bring my journal. Bad move.
I did however Snap quite a bit of the event, took pictures and took notes on my phone. The notes are below in bold. I’ll scatter some pictures in the post and HERE is the link to the gallery.
I started the whole thing off with an instagram post of course.
I was under the impression that I might get more attention on my Snapchat if I added this. I think I got 2 more followers.
I then downloaded the #WorldFitnessExpo app. That was a pleasure. Easy to use I guess. Nothing special. It was a way of having everyone at the Expo join together to post and connect without having to be separated by Social Media divisions.
I got more attention on there for a few pictures than I did on Snapchat.
We left Ottawa around 1pm on Thursday and got to the hall around 6pm I think.
Here is a picture of one of the halls you’d walk through going from south to north side and back.
Once we got registered we were given a bag with a few goodies. Nothing special. I took this video for a friend of mine who loves Kangen Water.
Ok. Let’s skip some of the nonsense. Here is a picture of my hotel room view and the list of presenters at the expo.
Once we got settled. It was a coffee and some sleep. The following day was courses and the opening ceremony with Tony Horton and David Patchell-Evans.
Here is the main ceremony room
oh btw, I’m sexy AF
For the next video, Tony comes onto stage at 2:20
And here we are being buddies 😉
After this, I was browsing all around. My notes and the multiple photo locations makes it tough to understand so I’ll just throw it up and talk about it.
I certainly want to learn Yoga. Here is some reading material.
There was some business coaching stuff I’d attended too
And while we were learning about business, there was attention brought onto our habits and lifestyle. Here is a picture of a normal rat and a stressed out rat.
It’s crazy just how much stress takes a hold of us, even after 24 hours.
There was a speaker who was sharing information about testing for imbalances in the body. Here is some reading material for that
And this one is for my buddy again ;P
Towards the end of the night, we’d gone out to diner.
As of Saturday, I took random pictures and started the note taking. From here, I’ll post some pictures in the bold notes and make some comments in regular font to represent my voice today.
Videos of coaching
After the first Personal Trainer Gold Pass Summit speakers, I asked a few questions. I think I asked how I can get into the lives of the clients I have. The problem is that people are eating and living badly while thinking exercise is all they need. I was told to make videos for coaching. This is something I’ve been working on for a while in my mind with CADs Academy.
I need a business coach
You cant rush character development
Most people don’t get results and don’t expect them. Show your results.
Something here to say that people need to see the results. I need to be healthy and fit. I need to have success. And I need to show my work. Why am I not taking before and after pics of my clients?
I’m your face never lies
Your body never lies
When you are yourself. You are stress free.
You words for you and your client. They are powerful.

The body is your vehicle. If you change someone’s vehicle by 10%, you increase the likelihood of people moving, enjoying and participating in life. Story of the day guys father.
Do what you do best, hire the rest. Does this mean sales? A landscaper?
Treat you life like a business. Who is around you. Your staff. Hires. Training. Leader. Times. Planning. Financial. Organization.
What is your purpose.
This is about that moment when my wife sent me a picture of my daughter
She made a kitty friend!
Lead follow other out of the way.
Start treating your life like a business from the books your reading. You’re not applying your fundamentals anymore.
Align yourself with positive people. We k ow this. But are you doing it?
Can I play guitar and get Better? Yes. Then who are you getting worse with your body? The average of health is wrong because everyone is not aged, they’re broken by choice.
There us something I’m learning about the process that I’m living.
You don’t rise to the challenge. You sink to the level of your Training.
What is the possibility of offering coaching and mentoring at a rate that’s affordable to everyone. Many people cannot afford it. How can we make quality 1 on 1 content affordable.
Maybe people submit content questions and I answer personally but it’s made oublic. Do this for free. Then 1 on 1 coaching for money. Free and ultra oremium.
Create a website where it’s all user submitted questions and content where you answer and publish it.
I need a business coach.

Wud movement told me to do a white board videos for my clients. Get them to ask questions and I’ll answer on my website. They are my customers now.. and when I’m a huge company.
Sustainable health is about life changes. Carry groceries. Stairs over escalator. What to walk and how vs assisted movements. Move slow and burn calories. In comparison.
At this point, I had broken off from the crowd to join my buddy who was participating in a lifting competition.
After this, most of my day was gone. I later went back to courses.

You are not your body.
You are not your thoughts.
You are your intentions
I don’t want this *body as much as I do t want these *thoughts.
You need to be the example of the life you want to help your clients achieve. Don’t think Well, act well.
I have to pay for my life. What do I owe to life for having this 3 day pass.
When people graduate your course, Chris, they get access to yiu. Don’t give it upfront . Offer it once they are conditioned. Offer courses as a way for people to gain access to you

Make a mantra. I’m a progessional. I am an expert.
Compare your presentations to them. Have material. Reflect… what would you have wanted??
As you can see, I wasn’t horribly prepared but I’m happy at a point that it wasn’t 100% documented. I enjoyed letting my brain take and discard what it wanted.
