Here’s a Strength Faction Seminar Success Story from Adam Willis, a guy that’s been to several Strength Faction Seminars and keeps coming back.

 Adam Willis

“Attending the Strength Faction Seminar was an absolutely incredible experience and easily one of the best things I have done to further Myself as a Coach to date. I knew Todd, Chris, and Mike would over-deliver and they didn’t disappoint.


The biggest difference between the Strength Faction seminar and a lot of others I have attended was that we weren’t just given information to improve our knowledge base and then run through a few practical technique drills for the big lifts.


Todd, Chris, and Mike made sure that we left with practical applications for everything they presented on so that we could take that new knowledge and apply it to our Coaching skill set and business immediately.


I know I will certainly be attending as many of the Strength Faction Seminars that I can in the future and would highly urge all coaches looking to make a big difference to themselves and their business to do so also.”
