Publisher's Summary

Training people in sport as coaches or in fitness as personal trainers is certainly rewarding work. But there's a problem: What do we do next? There are countless books on diet and exercise and hundreds of machines, devices, and gimmicks to train people, and new gadgets and gizmos are popping up with every passing day.
Can You Go? answers this question: What do we need to do next?
Appropriate assessment leads to an appropriate answer. When we find a mobility issue, let's focus on mobility work. The same is true for both body composition and strength - we focus on what we need to do, not what we want to do.
For the performance athlete, sometimes assessment can be the short, brutal, and harsh question, "Can you go?" Lessons from this frankness can be learned by both the coach and the trainer. The deconditioned and the elite share the same basic human body. Our job is to enhance performance and quality of life with every training situation.

Great book, awful recording.

Would you try another book from Dan John and/or Dan John?

Definitely, IF he dramatically improves the sound quality

What didn’t you like about Dan John’s performance?

His performance was great, it was the sound quality that was awful. It sounds like he recorded it in his basement.Come on Dan. I've heard you speak and watch your videos in the past and enjoyed every one of them. You're better than this.

Was Can You Go? worth the listening time?

No. I choose audio books for the convenience of listening on the go. With the bad recording, it wasn't an easy listen. I love the content, but now I need to go buy the paperback to truly get everything i can out of this book.

Any additional comments?

Dan's beauty is that he breaks down coaching concepts into easy to understand ideas, and how to implement them easily with your clients.Saying that, the audio quality ruined the book for me.Don't waste your time, buy the paperback instead.

Great info

Wish he had this professionally narrated. It was difficult to follow because authors narration. Great info. I'd recommend a hard copy of the book instead.
