Experience doesn’t make a good coach – it’s insight. On this episode, Jared and Alex sit down with Chet Morjaria, a coach that identifies himself as a connector, communicator, and disruptor.
Chet is the founder and head coach of Strength Education Training Systems—an education platform for coaches. Additionally, he started and facilitates Strong Mind Book club—a book club where fitness business owners, coaches, personal trainers, and rehab specialists can have a monthly mind meld. Previously, our guest was an international managing editor of Breaking Muscle magazine. In fact, this guest of ours today is the author of the article Ten Types of Coaches and How to Spot Them, which was the central talking point of our inaugural episode titled “To Be a Motivator or a Technician”
