Dan John has been a strength and conditioning coach, trainer of trainers, educator, co-creator and activator at the highest levels of our field for over 3 decades.
He’s funny. He’s serious. He’s one of the coaches that I personally would like to watch when he doesn’t know I’m looking as often as I could. He’s a man with a reputation for simple and powerful training wisdom that can change the way you look at coaching in a moment.
I’ve experienced it personally.
He has a servants heart with a capacity and desire to sow, so that others can grow. His body of work speaks for itself and he leads a life worth following. He will activate the best in you, so you can do the same for those you serve, and for the industry you call your own. That’s what masters do.
I’m humbled to welcome Dan to the activeight experience in Phoenix in October. His presentation will be non-traditional and experiential. I look forward to learning from him and watching how he carries himself when “no one’s looking”. So should you!
Thank you Dan.
