    First of all congratulations for your choice and your atitude.

    I think what dday39 said to you is a very good idea. I don't know if is allowed to post here a entire list of yotube channels or sites BUT you will find a very high number of materials, just take time to search and select.

    And try to learn most of the time from books that are specially designed for purposes like yours and are much more complex and detailed.

    Different IP addresses for the alleged Spammers. Will keep an eye out, though!
    Donít chase the 1%, there is no magic training routine or diet thatís going to provide any measurable results over the basic principles for getting huge and strong: Train heavy, eat and sleep more.

    I was at barnes and noble a while back and saw a book called "how to become a personal trainer for dummies". I read a chapter their and it was very informative of what it takes to be a great trainer.

    Not just knowledge of training and nutrition helps but working with people with disabilities (low back, etc) and how to get them in shape.

    it was a big book with plenty of other cool information, i enjoyed it although i dont plan on being a trainer haha

    I've been in the industry for a few years and the number one thing I would recommend is: if you want to be the best, you need to learn from the best.

    Here's a few I would recommend you start with:

    1. Christian Thibaudeau
    2. Paul Carter
    3. Jim Wendler
    4. Dave Tate
    5. Matt Kroc
    6. Joe DeFranco
    7. Smitty Diesel
    8. Mike Robertson
    9. Tony Gentilcore
    10. Bryce Lewis
    11. Eric Cressey
    12. Mike Boyle
    13. Dean Somerset
    14. Jonathan Goodman
    15. Nick Tuminello
    16. Dan Trink
    17. Brad Scheonfeld
    18. Alan Aragon
    19. Mike Israetel
    20. Molly Galbraith
    21. Nia Shanks
    22. Bret Contreras
    23. Darkside Strength - Quinn Henoch & Ryan Brown
    24. Any and all of the guys at JTS Strength

    Start there. Read anything these guys put out. You need a solid foundation of knowledge initially before you try to specialize. Your topic of specialization will develop as you learn more and begin to see what you enjoy.

    I'm personally a biomechanics guy, it's what I enjoy and something I'm fairly good at, so talking shop regarding technique and functional anatomy is what I do.

    If you want to join the best group on facebook for PTs and strength coaches alike, search for "The Education of a Fitness Professional". It's run by a guy named Will Levy and will offer a variety of resources that are incredibly helpful.
