A few days ago I recieved the Joint-Friendly Training DVD’s that I ordered from Nick Tumminello. I don’t think I’ve ever reviewed a product on my site before, so you know that I don’t just promote anything and everything (I do enough of that in my good reads blogposts :)). Before I get started, I want to inform you that I make no commission off of any sales.
I give this product two thumbs up, five stars, and double rainbows! Seriously, it’s an amazing freakin’ DVD-set. I recommend it to all lifters, personal trainers, strength coaches, and physical therapists. This DVD-set fills a much needed gap in our profession. The 2-DVD set discusses “joint-friendly training” and is perfect for those who want to minimize risk while still getting a good workout, those who have “bad joints” and need to train around them, and those who train others and want to learn effective strategies for training around injuries and pain.
Here are some of the more unique reasons why I love the DVD set:
1. Nick is a hell of a speaker. You can tell he knows his shit when you listen to him speak.
2. Nick knows his gym and his equipment. This is something that I appreciate very much and can relate to so well. I’ve been training people for so many years now that I start to think that I know everything. It’s so great to have guys like Nick show you stuff you never thought about and add ammunition to your arsenal. You can tell when someone’s a good trainer when they know how to maximize their space and tools and get creative in training. Nick is one of the best in the business in this regard; perhaps the best. I’ve heard Nick say in the past that he’s only the expert on one thing; his clients. I’d have to disagree with Nick. He’s also the expert on his gym and his equipment. It’s not very often that someone thinks of something that I hadn’t thought of with basic fitness equipment, but Nick had me saying on a couple of occasions; “Now why in the hell didn’t I think of that?”
3. The DVD set exudes quality. The graphics are great and the information is very comprehensive. Nick shows effective exercises that spare the knees, low back, shoulders, and more. He even discusses joint-friendly conditioning.
4. Nick “gets it.” That’s one of the highest compliments I can pay to someone.
