One of the things that attracted me to Dr. Rusin is how absolutely versatile his training is. Push, pull, hinge, press, carry never looked so good.

Dr. John Rusin: The State of the Fitness Union

Read more

During this second episode of Vital Metabolic, James Wheeler and John Parker speak with Dr. John Rusin, physical therapist and a leading expert in the pain-free performance training model. Dr Rusin describes his functional hypertrophy training, which combines increasing muscle with decreasing stress on the body. Dr. Rusin also talks about his pain-free performance system, and what he sees for the future of strength training and coaching.

Episode Highlights: 

  • Dr. Rusin played multiple sports growing up.
  • Was it football that brought you into the world of strength and conditioning training?
  • Dr. Rusin tells a story about his first exposure to using weights and strength training, and how it put him off going to the gym for 2 years.
  • Dr. Rusin has his doctorate in physical therapy.
  • How has the field of physical therapy changed since you first went to school?
  • Dr. Rusin does not practice traditional physical therapy, and so is a little “out of the loop.”
  • Dr. Rusin looked into the difference between prevention and reaction.
  • Dr. Rusin spent time in China training olympic athletes.
  • Dr. Rusin developed a program called functional hypertrophy training, which focuses on helping people build muscles while sparing their joints.
  • How do you talk to people about functional hypertrophy training and building muscle mass?
  • Dr. Rusin believes that slight variation in training keeps it fun and makes it more motivating to keep training.
  • Do you take on one-on-one clients or how does client structure work for you?
  • Dr. Rusin does a one-on-one online coaching program, which allows him to continue working one-on-one while being busy and traveling.
  • Dr. Rusin stays within his expertise when taking clients.
  • When did the pain-free performance system start? How did it start and how has it grown?
  • Dr. Rusin explains how the system went from him lecturing to a small group of people to a full course with certification.
  • What are some of the things you see that are taking away from people getting where they want to go, and what don’t you like about the industry right now?
  • Personal trainers are not unified or licensed as professionals, even though people need them now more than ever.
  • From your perspective, what does the future of the fitness industry look like post-pandemic?

3 Key Points:

  1. Functional hypertrophy training is a program that helps people to build muscle while also focusing on keeping them from getting hurt. 
  2.  Dr. Rusin offers a certification in his pain-free performance training, and over 100 courses were slated to occur in 2020 before Covid-19.
  3. Personal trainers and coaches need to be more unified as a profession and increase their credibility, especially with the health needs the world is currently facing.

Tweetable Quotes: 

  • “The thing that really works well for us is giving people what they need but also what they want. And we achieve this with slight variation.” -Dr. Rusin
  • “If you’re not having fun it’s not challenging you.” -Dr. Rusin
  • “Fitness has a bad reputation...and one of my missions with the pain-free performance certification is to professionalize the workforce of the fitness industry.” -Dr. Rusin
  • “What do people value? When you think about that question, that’s what you need to be delivering.” -Dr. Rusin

Overcoming Tragedy and Failure to Become a Top 50 Fitness Expert with John Rusin

Read more

When you look at John Rusin today, you see a man who’s got a lot going for him.

He’s got multiple highly successful fitness businesses, he travels the world educating thousands of coaches each year, has hundreds of thousands of followers on social media and has an amazing home with a fully-built gym that has everything a serious lifter would need.

Yet not long ago, if you had told John this was his reality, he probably would have said you’re crazy

From having his decorated athletic career tarnished by one play, to attending four colleges in four years, to nearly failing out of physical therapy school, to having his world turned upside down by the death of a parent, John has overcome a lot to get to this point in his life.

And even a few years ago, John resorted to traveling and taking a job on the other side of the globe after realizing his glorified side hustle fitness business wasn’t paying the bills to support his family.

Thanks to an incredible work ethic and doing what others weren’t willing to do, he steadily built his success, and he's now been recognized as a “Top 50 Fitness Expert” in America by Men’s Health Magazine.

You’re going to want to tune into this episode, as John shares the mindset and strategies it takes to reach your potential in life.

Dr. John Rusin - Pain-free Exercise Specialist

Read more

Gaining muscle, losing weight, adding definition, burning fat, getting injured. What? One of these is not like the others, yet all can be outcomes of an exercise program. You work out because you want to make changes to your body; NO ONE wants to get injured but that is exactly what happens if exercise is done incorrectly or if an exercise program is not designed for your specific needs.

Designing exercise programs is a combination of science and art; a good coach has to know the science of how the body adapts to exercise along with the art of selecting exercises that are fun, effective and, most importantly, greatly reduce the risk of injury both during exercise as well as when you go outside of the gym to participate in your favorite activities. 

Dr. John Rusin is a physical therapist and strength coach who has created the Pain Free Performance Specialist education program for fitness professionals. Dr. Rusin develops conditioning programs for professional athletes in many sports, travels the world to teach fitness professionals how to design exercise programs and is now visiting the All About Fitness podcast to share insights with you on how you can get the most out of your workouts while greatly reducing the risk of injury.

On this episode John shares a unique story about how he got started on his fitness journey, what motivated him to become a performance coach and provides some strength training tips that you can use right away in your own workouts. If you love lifting heavy stuff and want to continue working hard no matter how old you become, then this episode of All About Fitness is for you!

It was an absolute pleasure to have the opportunity to have this guy as a guest for this week’s Strength Chat. In this episode I spoke with a strength coach, speaker, and writer, working with general population clients all the way up to elite level athletes with goal of achieving ultimate results through pain free programming, Dr. John Rusin. Having followed John for some time, it was great to be able to finally pick his brains and hear his thoughts on coaching and training. It’s clear to see as well that his passion for what he does is infectious. We chatted about functional training, its benefits and how people can get it wrong, as well as the importance of training movements not muscles for long term strength and healthy gains.
