Nick Tumminello Program Design – Workout Program Design – Exercise Programming
Designing programs can be a struggle for even experienced coaches and personal trainers. Nick Tumminello excels at making program design simple, from the oldest traditional programming principles to experimental concepts. In this lecture, Nick outlines the basics every trainer and coach needs to know to create quality programs for clients and athletes.
“These are some of the objectives. We’re going to talk about the difference between a fitness-training program and a performance-training program. We’re going to understand the basic periodization concepts and how to use them to get the best results, and we’ll discover the five main training cycles we use here at Performance University.
“We’re going to talk about how to use cool exercises in an effective manner. There’s no reason you can’t design an effective program that’s cool and fun for your clients and athletes, and to understand that they can’t really progress until they adapt.” ~Nick Tumminello

Nick is awesome. I’ve purchased his hypertrophy program design and strength training for fat loss course in the past and they were both extremely useful for the advancement of my skills and mastery of the craft that personal training is.
Very helpful and informative. This lecture definitely sets out and explains (in-detail) how to set up an effective program no matter the goal or phase of training.
LM Stanley –
Nick has a gift for clarifying and explaining complex ideas. His program design lecture is easy to follow and provides many take home ideas for implementing in an ongoing training program. He has mastered the subject matter by being open-minded, pragmatic, client-focused and willing to evolve as a trainer. I highly recommend his work. (I wish he had been my teacher in school!)

Nick is always delivering much more than what he is asking for(in terms of money). Great insights,tips from the trenches and immediate applications. Really loved it.
Peter Fabian –
If you are looking for a good overview of Program Design, feel confident that is what you get here. The slides and transcript are really good reinforcement if you are able to spend a bit more time Hope Nick doesn’t wait too long to come out with more material on this subject–I’d buy a book by him on it!
Found this lecture very practical, clear and helpful. Love the no B.S. talk and cut through approach to the principles of programming again. Thanks for the assistance in improving my knowledge base on programming Nick will definitely implement some principles
