Must read for anyone involved in fitness coaching.

This is an awesome book. I don't often say that any book is a "must read" or in this case a "must listen", but for a fitness professional JB's Change Maker fits that category. This goes deep into what truly matters in the fitness and nutrition coaching business. I have the hard copy book dog eared and highlighted along with the audio version.

A must read or listen to!

I have just only started to dive in.., I am two chapters in and the information, prospective, and experiences shared have already opened my eyes to the hamster I have been running on for the past ten years of being in the industry. Although I have made improvements in my approach and interactions with clients..., I know this book is going to take me to the next level and allow me to help so many people on my terms, following my true values and living the life that suits me, my family and my goals. Thank you so much for taking the time to create this for the industry, I know it will impact and change many lives.

A must hear/read for any fitness professional

Just finished it and starting again + ordering paper version. That good IMO. In this book you will have all what is missing in other fitness/health related book. Btw, best speaking performance till now by dr. Berardi from what I heard/saw from him till now and one of the best Audible performances narrated by authors.

Change Maker is a Game Changer

I’m a personal trainer and nutrition coach and I’ve been working in the fitness industry for 12 years. I took PN’s level 2 course and it changed my perspective on coaching completely. Intrigued with the level of introspection is was forcing me to do, I decided to purchase Change Maker to see what else John Bernardo had to say. I’m still working through the book, but I’m beginning to view the fitness industry in a whole new light. The main thing I’ve taken away so far is that not everyone that’s passionate about fitness and health has to go into coaching. There are so many jobs out there and it’s important that discover your superpowers and special skills and look for work (or create work) that aligns with them. Not only will those discoveries make you more in tune with who you are as a person, it might also highlight the type of work that will give you the most fulfillment in life. I’m really looking forward to all other nuggets of information I hope to get as I continue listening!

Wish This Existed Earlier.

This book is a an excellent career guide for fitness and nutrition coaches who want to have a lifelong fulfilling career. I wish this existed before I started my career journey 17 years ago. Glad to have come across this book packed full of wisdom on how to grow your skills, career, reputation and make an impact in the lives of those who need us most. If your just looking for another book to read or listen to, do not get this book. It will be like all other books you do the same with. This book is only for serious action takers. In addition to the wisdom, there are worksheets so you can put into action what you’ve read and take on an embodied practice approach to actually learn and apply the material rather then just knowing about it. Thank you, Dr. John Berardi!

Excellent book

The book guides you to assess your strengths, weaknesses, likes and dislikes and where your knowledge lies and then shows you on how to use them. Love the free worksheets. I can see myself using them again and again to reassess where I am, as my career progresses and my goals grow or change.
