Ready to Empower Your Performance?
To Thinking Athletes and Coaches That Want More Results in Less Time - But Get Stuck Along the Way
Introducing a step-by-step guide to writing devastatingly effective training programs that deliver record results in record time for your physique, health and performance (so you never have to depend on someone else again)
Let me guess…

The top 2 things holding back your training right now are:

  • Not having a clear system and plan in place for your training.
  • Getting stuck second-guessing and overthinking your training.

The reason I know that is simple. At my strength and conditioning company, Rebel Performance, we’ve coached over 1000 humans, and in a random pole 69% of them said so
I’m willing to bet you’re a lot like them…

You want to level up your physique, health and performance, but when it comes time to make it happen in the real world, you spin your wheels because you have the following questions circling in your brain 24/7:

  • What exercise is best to {fill in goal}?
  • Should I use a machine?
  • What set and rep scheme is best?
  • What weight should I use?
  • How long should I be resting?
  • Should I use a superset, tri-set, circuit…?
  • What’s the best weekly training split?
  • How many days per week should I lift?
  • How many days per week should I condition?
  • How often should I change things up?
  • Should my conditioning be hard or easy?
  • What heart rate range should I stay in?
  • What periodization scheme should I use…linear, block, undulating…?
  • My {fill in body part} is hurting. What should I do?

And so on and so forth…

Until you become your own worst enemy.

Maybe you’ve found yourself in a similar position where instead of heading to the gym with confidence and clarity, you get stuck aimlessly walking around the gym floor, wandering from exercise to exercise, figuring it out on the fly, and sitting up late at night stressing over “what am I going to do at the gym tomorrow?”

This isn’t a fun place to be, and when you end up here, you end up going through the motions, hopping from program to program every few weeks desperately looking for a solution.

And worst of all - you don’t see any real results from your training.

At least not results like this:

Case Study: 300lbs PR!

Added 300 lbs to his squat, bench, and deadlift

Added 4 inches to his vertical jump

Shaved 1 minute off his mile time

Is excited about training with a purpose again

Case Study: 170lbs PR!
Added 170 lbs to his squat, bench, and deadlift  
Added 3 inches to his vertical and broad jump
Improved conditioning by 30%
Having fun training again
Case Study: Pain Free 100 lbs Deadlift PR
Hit 100 lbs deadlift PR
Deadlift went from 450 lbs to 550 lbs
Said good bye back pain
Looks like wolverine
Case Study: 18lbs Of Muscle and No More Pain!
Put on 18lbs of muscle
Added 100lbs to his squat and bench
No more pain
 Fitter than when he rowed in college
Case Study: Lost 30 lbs and Increased Strength by 35%
Dropped 30 lbs
Increased his strength by 35%
 Living his fittest life

Today that changes...
I'm going to walk you through step-by-step how YOU can write training programs for yourself or your clients that consistently deliver record results in record time for your physique, health and performance.
Because I’m guessing you’re the type of person who doesn’t want to have to always depend on others, but rather, wants the knowledge to empower your own performance.

Much like the old saying goes…

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

Today, I’m going to teach you how to fish. 

I’m literally opening the door and giving you the answers to the test so YOU can empower your performance for a lifetime

If you’re a coach - I’ll show you how to write more effective programs in less time.

If you’re a thinking athlete - I’ll show you how to write programs for yourself just like the pros do. That way you can truly own your physique, health and performance, and not have to always depend on others.

Here are a few things you’ll end up with:

  • An easy-to-understand model of human movement and biomechanics that doesn’t leave you lost in the weeds. Seriously, it’s all going to make sense using nothing more than stick figures, shapes, and patterns.
  • An exercise classification system that makes exercise selection, progression, and regression a breeze.
  • Set Up and Cueing Toolbox: so you’ll be able to confidently set up, coach, cue and execute all the major movement patterns and stances to excellence.
  • Bedrock Training Principles: develop a clear understanding of the science and theory of volume, intensity, strength, hypertrophy, power, and endurance training.
  • The exact templates, protocols, strategies, and set/rep schemes to use when you are writing training programs.
  • The Program Builder: your playbook to design simple, yet devastatingly effective training days, weeks, months, and blocks in no time at all.

If that sounds good to you, then keep reading…

Hi! I'm James

Hey! If you're new here my name is James Cerbie and here's a little about me:

  • I’m a former D1 athlete turned strength and conditioning + nutrition coach. I’ve coached professional athletes, collegiate athletes, Navy SEALS, a BJJ world champion, CrossFiters, strongmen, powerlifters, bodybuilders, doctors, lawyers, accountants, CEOs, and just about everything in-between.
  • I’ve been featured in Men’s Health, Livestrong, Muscle and Strength, The Journal of Physiology, The Journal of Applied Physiology, and The FASEB Journal. 
  • I’ve consulted with special operations groups (like the SEALS) and professional sports teams (like the Washington Wizards).
  • I have 11 academic publications to my name and spent 2.5 years working on a PhD in Nutrition and Integrative Physiology before walking away because I realized I can have a greater impact coaching than I can writing grants.

What Real Humans Think

"James Cerbie is a rising star in the fitness industry, thanks to his passion, insatiable desire to learn, and his own experience as an athlete. During his internship with us at Cressey Performance, he quickly gained popularity with clients and coaches alike. I’m now proud to call him a professional colleague and look forward to all the great things he’ll do for the industry moving forward."

️ Why This Course Exists
If you have to rely on someone else to own your physique, health and performance, you are fragile.

I've spent the past decade working endlessly building my training and programming system, and have tested it on 1000's of athletes from around the world...

And maybe you're wondering why I'm giving it all away like this...

Well, the answer is simple - I want to help as many humans win as possible.

If that means you work directly with me and my team one day to fast-track your physique, health and performance, awesome!

If not, I still am 100% committed to helping you dominate in the gym so you can look better, feel better and perform better than you ever have.

And the best way I can think to do that is by teaching you what you need to know so you can do it for yourself for the next 5, 10, 15+ years.

I really hope you enjoy this course as much as I enjoyed putting it together for you.

And hey, if it's not for you. 

That's okay too. 

Thanks for stopping by and giving it a chance.

What Real Humans Think

"I have the luxury of interacting with many up-and-coming coaches in the industry, and I can say with full confidence that James is a rare breed. He’s down-to-earth, humble, walks the walk, and has an insatiable appetite to learn and to get better. Anyone who has the opportunity to work with him – whether an athlete or a regular Joe/Jane – would be crazy not to take it."

Tony Gentilcore
Co-Founder, Cressey Sports Performance

"The future for James is going to be huge. In the fitness industry, he’s going to be a major player. His combination of work ethic, productivity, desire to constantly learn, and willingness to humble himself in the name of becoming a better trainer are all qualities that employers salivate over, and will lead to him making a strong presence for himself as a trainer, coach, and mentor to the next generation of trainers and coaches. I would trust him to train any of my clients, my parents, and might even train with him myself."
