CEO Strength Coach is DEFINITELY for you if you are looking to not only become a great strength and conditioning coach, but also how get the most out of life AND give back to a profession that continues to positively affect the lives of millions.
If you are a younger coach pay special attention to chapter 8 'Principle Based Not Philosophy Based' and chapter 11 'Leading Up'.
If you are in the private sector of coaching spend time on chapter 18 'Productivity' and chapter 20 'Make The Big Time Where You Are'.
Coaches young and old will enjoy learning from his journey, insights, and timeless advice of what it takes to best the best....learning from one of the best.
Thanks Ron for all you continue to do for others!

I think Coach McKeefery does a great job of being true to himself. He expands on the struggles of having a job in this industry such as managing his time at work with his time at home with his family.
If you are a strength and conditioning coach I highly recommend this book. I work in the private sector and there is a ton of information that is useful for me so don't think that just because you don't work in collegiate strength and conditioning that you don't need this book. You DO need this book. Also, you need to check out his podcast if you haven't already - Iron Game Chalk Talk.
Thanks coach for being so generous with your time and knowledge.
Thanks coach for all you do for the field. You are a true professional!
