Introduction to the All American Athlete Program

And so it begins, the undertaking of my largest project ever...

First, let me introduce myself. My name is Kevin Dineen, and I am a Strength Coach and Certified Personal Trainer living in New York City, working at the best gym in America (Vogue, 2007). I started working out in 1995, when I first stepped foot in my high school weight room to train for football. Since then, I have pursued this profession to a point where it is no longer my career; rather, my passion. As such, I have decided to expand my influence to trainers, trainees and coaches alike, in the form of a program and program model. Now let me introduce the program...

This program is intended to maximize your fitness levels, including, but not limited to:
  • strength
  • endurance
  • speed
  • power
  • aesthetic appeal
  • flexibility
  • decreased injury risk
  • increased mobility

Let me conclude tonight's post by also summarizing what this program is NOT:

  • one-size-fits-all
  • a result of paid clients' success
  • a result of a supervised, unrealistic study performed on untrained individuals

In fact, this program is YOURS, tailor made to fit your goals and current fitness levels, designed by a REAL trainer in a REAL gym with REAL clients. No undergraduate students who have not trained before, no paid actors or models in before-and-after photo shoots. This is a program that will demand research by institutions, to determine the physiological explanation of how a program can be so entirely successful, without ever being done before...

Stay tuned...



  2. hahahahaha good job kev. actually i saw that article with those stupid little cards with those stupid moves that lack any kind of plane of motion which exists to produce muscle contraction! . ive never been more offended as a "fitness professional" not to mention a chick that will never go under 50 lbs on a overhead press. it makes me wonder whats wrong with the that part of the world. . . . . oh thats right, they know nothing about being in shape and could care less about being strong.

    im not hating on gweneth paltrows trainer, hey good for you- - gweneth is your client, get that money! but tell me gweneth, how many push ups can you do? a pull up? do know what a dead lift is? ask your trainer about your 4RM and then ill giver her the benefit of the doubt. like i said, im not hating on gweneths trainer, but yea . . . as some one who sees real talent every day, i am.
