Strength Faction: Enrollment Is Open!
Why Strength Faction?
The quote gallivants through the fitness internet like a picture of a Kardashian with her ass doused with maple syrup.
We know how hard it is for coaches to manage their own training while they manage their clients’ training, and potentially a business.
We know the value of intentional community.
We know the importance of continuing education.
That’s why Strength Faction exists.[/text_block]
Lead From The Front.
Education pervades the entire program.
Members learn-by-doing—following great programming, learning from Todd, Chris, Mike, the Faction Mentors and from the other coaches in the community.
Learn-by-doing opportunities are supported by weekly lessons, Q&A sessions, webinars and demonstration videos. It’s a wet dream for strength coaches looking to grow physically, mentally and professionally.[/text_block]
But somewhere along the way, your responsibilities as a professional began getting the best of your passion for your craft.
You need to reignite your passion for training & coaching.
This starts with you.
Your enthusiasm for coaching.
The community you are a part of.
Strength Faction will give you all of that.[/text_block]
Transformation. Community. Education.
Those in Strength Faction can relax, have a blast and be themselves.
We’re all in this together—to have fun, learn and live better lives.[/text_block]
The Strength Faction Process:
Then the fun begins.
Each member learns how to adapt the program—select movements, determine intensity, determine frequency, etc.—through written and video lessons and by interacting with the Strength Faction coaches. But wait…there’s more!
The program changes with the season.
We’re all taking in extra calories in the fall and winter, so we use them to build muscle and strength. In the spring we cut to get ready for shirtless, or bikini-clad, summer meandering.
The summer program teaches us to maintain our gym lifestyle while staying active and enjoying the summer weather.
Each training block runs for 16 weeks with a one-week break between blocks. Strength Faction members sign up for each block individually with the option to re-up at the end.
What happens if a member feels like they need extra help?
They schedule a meeting with a coach.
As members train using the Strength Faction program, they receive weekly lessons, have the option to participate in a weekly Q&A and have access to live-recorded Beyond Strength Performance staff in-services.[/text_block]
Real Feedback from Real Strength Faction Members
Four months into Strength Faction and I can say that it far exceded my expectations. Todd and Chris Merritt have put together an outstanding resource. I essentially came in for the programming and the accountability. I came out with a bunch of new friends, new coaching cues/concepts and a renewed sense of personal strength. From the weekly lessons, tutorials, online Q and As, my mentor (and friend) Mike Connelly and my accountability buddy Lori Lindsey; everything delivered. I would also add that if you are a newer coach, you really should just sign up now. The quality of programming, exercises selection, nutrition, coaching advice, business tips and community will give you a massive level up in your game.

S.F has been the surprise solution for me in 2015. I feel like I am part of a community and connected to the others in the group. The programs work, my strength is back which is pretty cool. More importantly, physically I feel good and mentally I feel good about myself.”
Haylin Alpert, Owner of Core Principles Strength and Conditioning, Stamford, CT
There is a lot I can say about the Strength Faction but I’ll keep it concise. The program is structured in a way that is always challenging with unique content that makes sense. These guys know how to make it fun and feel like you are part of team. The way they instruct, using videos and spreadsheets, focuses on both the quantitative and the qualitative. There is a lot of effort that goes into designing this program and you can see it!”

What Does A Strength Faction Week Look Like?
Each Monday you receive the Monday Email—a look at the Strength Faction week ahead. We’ll talk about how to be successful with the program that week and give you a preview of all the lessons that are coming your way during the week. We’ll help you get your mind right to kick the week right in its unsuspecting ass![/text_block]
Tuesday is Lesson Day!
On Tuesdays we learn. This glorious, second day of the workweek delivers either a written or video lesson. Topics range from self-coaching and mindset to lift performance and the idiosyncratic nature of navigating exercise. Topics are also tailored to match the current training phase and weekly theme.
That’s right–lessons on Wednesday’s, too. As the Faction progresses, this will be the day for our nutrition work, but expect great lessons on all the other Faction topics (personal development, programming, coaching, professional expansion, business) on Wednesdays as well.
But Wednesday’s aren’t done after the lessons hit the dashboard, we also have weekly Wednesday QnAs. These puppies take place mid-afternoon. The Faction Family gathers on ZOOM while we chat with each other or learn from an industry-leading special guest.
Fit Biz and QnA Thursdays!
On Thursdays we learn from Cressey Sports Performance’s business mastermind, Pete Dupuis! Using a combination of videos, written lessons, and question and answer sessions, Pete gives Faction members immediately applicable business advice, tips, and skills that help us all grow, and run, better fitness businesses.
Later that evening, we have another round o’ Strength Faction QnA. Same structure as Wednesdays, this time we just get down in the evening. There’s usually booze, and sometimes people wear costumes. And there are at least two special guests per month.
Even the most serious strength coach wants to look good—and a shirt-stretching set of pipes make aesthetics pop. A new workout video is posted every Friday to prepare ladies and gents for the weekend marauding.
Beyond the aesthetics, Fratboy Friday is there to remind us that the gym is supposed to be fun. Blow off some steam and sculpt some aesthetics![/text_block]

More Feedback from Awesome Strength Faction Members
“The real value is how I’ve evolved tremendously as a coach in the past four months. For basically my entire career until now, I’ve been in a sprint mindset: Acquire all the information, and learn as fast as possible. I’ve been in a hurry to be perfect, to get to the point where I know all the answers as soon as possible. All that chasing of perfection has not only paralyzed my growth at various times (for fear of being wrong), but also caused me to lose track of the big picture. Strength Faction has helped me realize that perfect doesn’t exist, but constant improvement, gaining experience, and trusting our intuition will make us far better coaches than knowing all the ‘right’ answers.”
– Paul Lyngso, Owner of Experity Functional Strength, Burr Ridge, IL
“Even Coaches Need Coaches. What do the most talented athletes, successful businessmen and powerful world leaders all have in common?
They all have coaches who guide them.
The Strength Faction coaches are awesome people and amazing coaches…their simple/brutally effective approach to programming has helped get me back on track at a time when my crazy life had completely derailed my training.”
– Kevin Carr, Lead Coach at Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning, Owner of Movement as Medicine
“Strength Faction is the best thing I have done personally and professionally in a very long time. I signed up with the hope of learning more about exercises and programming and re-inspiring myself professionally. What I got was all that and so very much more. The quality and quantity of the information is outstanding. There are multiple lessons per week about training, nutrition, coaching philosophy and about stuff totally unrelated but that makes you a better trainer. You would think that we were the only people Chris and Todd were coaching by the constant volume of information we get. Maybe the best part of Strength Faction is the community it creates. It’s something you want to be a part of and it makes you a better person and coach.”
– Kirk Adams, MS, Head Performance Coach at Golf and Body NYC
“Strength Faction provides a premier base of knowledge and programming. It is the leading site to gain specific information on all aspects of training and development. Todd and Chris are exemplary in the methods they use to communicate to the people that are engaged in the process and make the training and learning completely enjoyable and empowering. I feel I have grown as a coach through working with these guys.”
– Paul Goodman, Professional Hockey Strength Coach
