What an Exciting Month! Lots of Great New Content Coming!
Posted Jan 06 2011 6:00am
As many of you probably know, my life gets a little bit more hectic in February, so I have been really trying to take advantage of the last few weeks to tackle some long term planning. That being said, I actually have hit many of my project goals and have a lot of exciting things coming your way over the few months. And I’m not just talking about all these cool new scribbles and annotations I have been doing with my new tablet (see above image and my past articles on McConnell patellofemoral taping and shoulder impingement )!
New Website Design
For my long term readers, you know that my webpage has been pretty much the same since the beginning. I actually still like the theme and have tweaked and enhanced it over the years, but I’m either bored or it’s getting stale, probably a bit of each. I also started this website with very naïve web-skills and a basic free blogger account. I still would recommend this for many people and it has served me well, but I am ready for the jump to Wordpress and a new theme. Look out for a brand new fresh look on this site that should be easier to navigate and allow me to present information even better in the future. I’m hoping for the end of the month, maybe February.
New Online CEU Program
A little over a year ago I developed and introduced an amazing online continuing education program for the Recent Advances in Evidence-Based Examination and Treatment of the Shoulder. The general concept was to take a weekend seminar and present it in chunks over the course of 7 weeks so that you can slowly integrate and apply the info (and avoid falling asleep in the back of the room during a seminar…). The response was overwhelming and I open and closed the doors to the program three times, selling out each enrollment in a matter of days.
I am completely revamped the website and have incorporated much of the feedback that past participants provided. There are many new features, a bit of a refresh and update of the content, and a great new website. Here is a sneak peek:
Among many of the new features of the program, I am really excited the most about these:
You can now sign up and begin the program 24/7, anytime you want. No start and end dates. You will automatically get access to the week 1 material and 7 days from signing up will have access to week 2. Now you don’t have to wait and can start when most convenient to you.
Access from any place at any time, you only need internet access.
More streamlined website. Again, similar to above, moving over to a better website design on Wordpress, should make for a better experience.
Members online discussion forum that is more advanced than past sessions.
CEU approval from the NSCA and APTA (still waiting from the NATA… hello… Bueller… Bueller…)
I’m really looking forward to this and hope to launch this month. Stay tuned, but more importantly, newsletter subscribers will get a special limited-time discounted price, so sign up for the newsletter now to not miss out.

Big thanks to Joe for putting this together AND offering it for FREE!
Joe’s website in general is really amazing and a great resource, I am WAY behind on this but want to write up a nice review of the site for all my readers so they know more about it, look for it over the coming months.
New Collaboration with Eric Cressey and Mike Robertson
Eric, Mike, and I have been putting our heads together now since the summer regarding the development of a new education product that should be outstanding. Stay tuned for more info but it will involve a collaboration of presentations and we have even discussed making it a yearly “web symposium” of some sorts. We are still working out the details but look for this in the early summer hopefully! Now all I need is a cool photo of me flexing like these guys and I’m all set!
Much to look forward to in the upcoming few weeks to months! Thanks for joining me on the ride!
