Functional Coach 7... The Evolution Continues

Change Is Good...You Go First!

My main goal and hope is to encourage you to think about both training and life.

Really sit down and think. I want to challenge methods and strategies and ways 'we have always done it' so we can have a solid 'why' behind it.

Over the past 38 years I’ve coached thousands of athletes, from middle school novices to World Champions.

I’ve been through every fad and trend to come along. I’ve witnessed the emergence of the ‘internet guru’ sharing theories they’ve never actually used with athletes.

But most importantly, I’ve developed a sense of what works…and what doesn’t.

I’ve evolved and continued to seek out and superior ways to train my athletes, improving every year.

Besides getting our athletes to improve, I've also helped develop countless coaches, trainers and staff members.

As I find new techniques and strategies that proved to be successful with our athletes and coaches at Mike Boyle Strength & Conditioning (MBSC), I document them.

As you know, I am committed to sharing what really is working today at MBSC and our industry. So, every few years, I like to share what I’ve learned, how we're using what I learned, what innovations or transitions I see in the future, what changes I have made to our programs…and how you can benefit from it too.

What's Working…Right Now

There has been enough progression in our training over the past few years that I knew that I had to share what we are doing with our athletes right now.

Over the past few years I’ve learned a lot (hopefully you have too). We’ve tested tons of ideas and concepts at our facility, discarding most but integrating new protocols that have proven to be incredibly valuable to the development of our athletes.

That’s what good coaching is.

Change. An evolution.

I'm not saying if I make a change, you have to change but, shouldn’t you at least consider the change?

Consider the thought process, consider the logic, don’t simply revert back to what you like.

I’m often asked why ‘another Functional Strength Coach’.

The answer is simple.

We’re always evolving.

Our evolution as Strength Coaches is happening faster than ever before.

And yours should be changing and evolving too.

That’s why you’ll find Functional Strength Coach 7 vastly different than any of the previous FSC volumes.

Because I’m a student. Just like you. I’ve learned a lot recently that has made me a better coach, and in turn made our programs and our athletes better. And made our coaches better coaches.

Now I’m turning that newfound education over to you.

Functional Strength Coach 7

Functional Strength Coach 7 is spread out over roughly 7 hours of exclusive footage, this closed-door, all-day seminar plus the Functional Strength Coach Manual will give you my latest thoughts and strategies.

I filmed Functional Strength Coach 7 at PerformBetter in front of a group of about 50 coaches. Many of these coaches have been with me for a long time and have seen the changes to my system.

We get so focused on what we are doing, it’s like looking through a key hole at times. We need to take time and see different perspectives to widen our lens. Functional Strength Coach 7 will help widen that lens.

One of the coaches at the recording said it was "like having Mike Boyle at your staff meeting". My hope is that you will join me and learn with me.

I’m Still Having Epiphanies in Year 40

I'm a life long learner.

I have found that the coaches and trainers who invest in any of the Functional Strength Coach Series, that they are life long learners. They are also the most successful coaches. They don't jump on the latest fad. They test and evaluate. They are constantly trying to get better.

If you are a life long learner like me, you try to learn for other life long learners. Because what you were doing 10 years ago, 5 years ago and even 1 year ago, is not what is going to get you to keep improving your program to get the best results possible.

I am often criticized for changing my views on things.

It's odd because that is something I am actually proud of.

Why would people get upset at me for thinking, testing and improving?

The industry should be more worried about me (and other coaches) not changing. What if I was still using the exact same program for 38 years?

It's ok to change. You actually need to change to grow and get better.

It's said that Smart People

• Change their mind
• Use simple language
• Talk less but, say more
• Stay teachable
• Ask questions

I choose to be smart, do you?

IMPORTANT - Functional Strength Coach is NOT a Step-By-Step Program

Don’t think of it as a step-by-step system.

It's not a cut & paste program you can take. Quite frankly, you do not need a cut & paste system. That would mean you would throw everything out that you are doing and replace it. That's not what you need and it's not how you become a better coach.

This is about lessons learned, changes made. It's a thought provoking course.

This is the program to invest in and block off time to actually go through the entire program and then sit back and think about the program you are running and what changes you need to make to your program to get better.

It makes you question everything you are doing in your program so you can find better ways to do things so you can become more efficient and produce better results. It's our ultimate goal as coaches. We need to constantly challenge our system to improve.

This is the program that leads to those challenges, to change, to making your program even better.

Ed Lippie

"If you have watched the first six Functional Strength Coach videos, it would easy to assume that you have seen and heard everything Coach Boyle has to offer our industry…but you know what they say about assumptions. In FSC 7 Coach Boyle continues to challenge conventional thought processes, and in some cases, questions some of the same practices he has used in his own programs for decades.  The final result is a thought provoking, yet practical outlook on where our field has been, where it is now, and where we should be looking in the future.”

Ed Lippie, Senior Performance Advisor, AS Roma
Devan McConnell

"Functional Strength Coach 7 is the continued progression of Mikes thoughts on training, but more importantly on life. As I get older, I appreciate his wisdom outside the weight room more and more. FSC 7 provides valuable insight and food for thought from the latest in training to the things we don’t think enough about, but probably should. ”

Devan McConnell, Director of Sports Performance for UMass Lowell
Jeff Oliver

"I can't tell you how excited I was to be invited to the filming of Mike's Functional Strength Coach 7. I always know I will walk away with new and applicable ideas to put into play the following week.  This session was as fresh and helpful as Functional Strength Coach 1. Mike's ability to push our industry forward is second to none. I am proud to learn from the best.”

Jeff Oliver, Head Strength & Conditioning Coach for the College of the Holy Cross
Michael Kamal

"Michael Boyle has and continues to be on the cutting edge of the field of Strength and Conditioning. His ability to seek out knowledge, information, and ideas from all areas of life and synthesize it into a workable system truly sets him apart from others.  This latest resource provides countless useful ideas that are immediately actionable.  Coach Boyle is a primary 'go to' for myself and staff."
