Course Corrections for the Athlete and Trainer
by Dan John
The Exact System A Master Coach Uses To Get His Clients To The Next Level of Performance
Great coaches seem to have a ‘sixth sense’ when it comes to working with athletes and clients.
Dan John recalls a conversation he had one day with one of his interns:
This whole project began when someone asked, “How do you do it?”
One of my interns had been listening to me, week in and week out, on the phone with athletes.
“Well, you seem to give solid advice every call and I recognize the basics we do, but, then…”
“You seem to have some individual advice that just comes up out of your mouth, things I’ve never heard you say, and it’s like every call this happens.”
Great coaches often amaze the rest of us with their ability to come up with the right solution in any and every situation.
This amazing ability is not the result of magic, however. It’s from decades of experience working with thousands of people in a variety of situations.
By being exposed to many situations, different types of problems, and being able to test different methods and solutions, experienced coaches are able to develop an instinct and mental process for what to do in different situations.
Because this ability is developed slowly over the course of years, it becomes an unconscious process that is virtually second nature to the coach.
Now, while this unconscious process is certainly impressive to less-experienced coaches and athletes, the question often left is—
How are you—as a coach or trainer without the luxury of having decades of experience working with thousands of people—able to learn what these great coaches do if even they aren’t fully conscious of how they do what they do?
If you’re asking that same question, we’ve got some good news for you.
One of the most respected strength coaches in the world, Dan John, has taken the time and effort to unpack the EXACT process and system he uses to assess and improve the strength, conditioning and fitness of the people he coaches.
It took Dan John four years to really dig into the unconscious system he had developed over the course of 35 years of training and competing as a field athlete, and coaching all kinds of clients from high schoolers, to people looking to lose a few pounds, to older athletes wanting to move without pain, all the way up to professional athletes in the elite categories of sport.
But he did it.
And luckily enough for the rest of us, Dan made it clear and simple (and yes, he has a reputation for doing that).
The result is what you now find in his book, Intervention.
Get Dan John’s complete coaching system and you’ll never be left guessing about what to do with your athletes or clients.
In Dan John Intervention, Dan explains the system he developed over the course of 35 years training and coaching athletes. The Intervention system consists of 10 questions and 5 principles that can completely change the way you train or work with clients.
Intervention is a complete toolkit to help you find the most direct route from Point A to Point B with whoever you work with—from everyday men and women, right up to elite athletes.
You’ll never again be left confused, wondering what to do with the different methods, techniques and tips you hear about, wondering where they fit into an athlete’s program.
You’ll never again be confused about which exercise to pick for your clients.
And you’ll never again be left without a clear path, and a process to use to move your clients from where they are, to where they need to be.
I’ve always said the greatest compliment to a coach is to say he gets it.
Dan John really gets it…and knows how to put it on paper.

Assessing athletes and clients
Before you’re able to set appropriate goals or design effective programs to get there, you need to know where you’re starting from. As a coach or trainer, correctly assessing where your athletes or clients currently are is crucial for knowing which path to take.
