I wanted to let y’all know about an outstanding book by my good friend Jason Seib, The Paleo Coach. I’m on page 187 of this 250 page book and just wanted to get this outstanding book on folks radar. Apologies for not waiting until I finished the whole thing but as I’ll mention below I’m going to be off the grid for a few weeks working on a project.
About Jason Seib
I met Jason many years ago when he contacted my wife, Nicki Violetti, for a business consult. Jason recently opened a gym and had some questions about branding, business systems and a number of related topics. It was clear that Jason was not running the typical CrossFit train wreck of a gym. He had some great systems in place already and was actually waffling as to the utility of maintaining the CF affiliation. In an act of both bravery and a desire to focus on quality, Jason went his own way and rebranded as Clackamas Physical Conditioning.
It was not long after this that Jason linked wagons with Sarah Fragoso and that crew has subsequently provided some of the best training and nutrition coaching available.
Jason is a phenomenal coach…he knows the S&C game inside and out and I can un-reservedly recommend him as a nutrition coach. He KNOWS the science and the practical application of this stuff.
About the Paleo Coach
Imagine the following scenario: Smart dude commits his life to coaching and nutrition. Builds a successful gym and online coaching practice, works with thousands of people…continues to learn and perhaps most importantly, gets phenomenal results with his clients.
Then he takes this experience and writes a book. You might go out on a limb and suspect this would be a good effort and in the case of The Paleo Coach, you would be correct. Meal plans, exercise, life-coaching, personal anecdotes, all woven together in a precise but easy to grasp style. I actually see this book as being birthed in a similar way as my own, in that it was an outgrowth of many hours working with people, figuring out the big picture but also the little nuances that help to make a program customizable. In short, I cannot recommend this book enough.
Off The Grid
Apologies for not going into greater detail with the book, but we will have Jason on an upcoming episode of the podcast where we will get into much more detail about not only the book but how he tackles coaching and the many other projects Jason has cooking. The brevity is forced on me as I have a very time sensitive project cooking that will require me to be 100% off the grid for about 2 weeks. I know myself and the crack-cocaine of tinkering with the blog, answering emails and tinkering with social media will bite me in the fanny, so y’all will not hear a peep from me until about May 1. If the interwebz burn down in that time, it’s been good, let’s go farm some coconuts.
