Interview with Pete Troupos SSC and staff coach for Starting Strength during his UK visit Summer 2021.
Pete flew in from Florida to hold two camps with SSC Carl Raghavan in London, both sold out.
In this interview Pete explains the Starting Strength method and why it has such a meaningful impact when applied by lifters young and old.
He discusses the fitness/gym industry in general and goes on to explain key differences in the approach that Starting Strength takes to provide transformative changes through basic barbell training delivered by Starting Strength Coaches.
We discuss the allure of physique based training in motivating people to begin exercise, what people can expect when they begin strength training and why women should not be worried about negative effects of barbell and strength training when it comes to their appearance.
Pete also talks about the focus on progressing within strength training, why it is a worthy undertaking when there are many other forms of exercise available and how it proves its relevance within day to day living, especially as we age.
Pete goes on to talk about why there are only around 120 Starting Strength Coaches in the world, and he details the rigorous process for going beyond the industry standard of Personal Trainer to become a coach and how Starting Strength Coaches are assessed.
