A Must Read and Reread.

I became an accredited Precision Nutrition Level 2 coach just as COVID hit, and decided to move all my clients online. Change Makers also came out around this time, and I read the book to gain more clarity and direction for what to do next. Unfortunately, I didn’t fully absorb the information or do the work the first time I read the book, and these past few months I became distracted by shiny objects and online businesses coaches promising 6-figures to work with them. Recently I revisited Change Makers and it truly is the eye of the storm. Right now more than ever, the health and fitness industry is noisey and overcrowded, especially online. Change Makers removes all the fluff, and gets straight to the meat and potatoes of what’s truly important for being an effective agent for positive change in this industry. My favourite section of the book is Chapter 4: Coaching. I regularly use the client questions provided to help me listen more compassionately to their worries and concerns, and to give clients the agency to come up with their own solutions and next actions steps. Change Makers provides practical, timeless direction on how to run a successful business, focussed on providing great value, building meaningful relationships and using client-centred coaching.

You are the Change

Can not rate this book highly enough. As someone who is entertaining the idea of entering the fitness and wellness industry this book inspires beyond anything I could have ever hoped and resonated with me and what I want to achieve on my journey. So much of it can also be translated into real life, not just in fitness. I didn't actually make the connection that John Berardi was the founder of Precision Nutrition. I have been looking at their certificate for a few years now and always putting it off because I keep thinking life is in the way. NO LONGER. You can be sure that I will be following that up. Never stop learning friends

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.

Poor

Not a fan at all. Too much about the author and his achievements. Nothing new or revelatory is this book and definitely not a changemaker IMHO.

Changing my Mindset

As a Precision Nutrition coach (for those who do not know PN is John Berardi's business) I bought this with some trepidation, thinking it may be more of the same information well it's not, its so much more. I've been working in the industry for 15 years and got so much information from this book, however, let me emphasise that the information is just as accessible to new people and those considering entering the industry. Indeed, I wish I had this information before I entered the industry. As for the download well John you've over delivered again!!!!

A "must read" for a budding Health Coach

I have listened and re-listened to the "Changemaker" audible book several times and I will re-use as an easy to navigate resource. If you are just starting out or looking to expand your established Health Coaching business this book is packed full of easy to understand and practice advice on how you can move to the next level. The book is supplemented with downloadable, fillable "Activities and Worksheets" and "Questions and Answers" that give practical guidance in getting the job done. I am happy to recommend this book as a great resource for Health Coaching.
