My name is Mike Robertson, and if your goal is to become a better trainer or coach, to get amazing results with your clients and athletes, all while working less and making more money, then we need to talk.

Every day I talk to trainers and coaches through email, private messages, and DM’s, and I hear the same stories:

They’re tired of not getting the results they want.

They’re frustrated working so many hours, and missing out on quality time with their friends and loved ones.

And they know that if something doesn’t change, SOON, they’re going to be looking for a different career.

So when I hear those stories, I can relate – because I’ve been there myself. 

You see, I knew my whole life that I wanted to help clients and athletes get into awesome shape. 

But just like you, I’ve had more than my fair share of struggles along the way. 

I’ve struggled to find the best coaching cues – the ones that aren’t just cute, but that actually help people move and feel better.

I’ve lacked confidence in myself, and my approach, when it comes to coaching my athletes.

And I’ve been frustrated and confused when it comes to laying out a training program that will help my clients and athletes get results.

But that’s also why I’m the perfect person to help you – because behind those struggles, and beyond those mistakes, I’ve created a training system that can help YOU get real results with every single client and athlete you train.

And that’s my goal – to give you the tools necessary to become the most awesome trainer or coach you can possibly be, and to help you make more money and enjoy more time off in the process.

If this sounds like something that might interest you, let me tell you about….  

Complete Coach Certification by Robertson Training Systems

The Complete Coach SEMINAR!

The Complete Coach Seminar is a live, 3-day course held at Chicago Fit Performance in Chicago, Illinois from June 21st-23rd.

My goal with this seminar is to give any trainer or coach – from the total newbie to the seasoned vet – the tools necessary to explode their results in the gym.  

And I realize that’s a bold statement.

But this seminar is going to be different than anything you’ve ever attended in the past.

How would you feel about attending a seminar where you’re learning in a live, dynamic fashion?

Where instead of being lectured to, we’re working side-by-side to help train your coaching eyes?

Or to figure out the best cue possible?

What about instead of talking about an assessment, we actually took the time to ASSESS SOMEONE in real time?

To see how they move, figure out what they do well, and determine what we might want to fix?

And last but not least, what if we took that assessment and crafted a training program on-the-spot that’s virtually guaranteed to help them get results.

Wouldn’t that not only be incredibly fun, but educational as well?

So if this sounds interesting you to, let me tell you how this awesome weekend is going to look…

Day 1

Introduction, Assessments and Program Design

Right from the start, this seminar is going to be different than anything you’ve experienced.

How, you might ask?

Because we’re going to start the weekend off by getting ALL the questions you have out of your head and onto a wipeboard to discuss.

This way as we progress through the seminar, we can come back to each and every question to make sure they’re answered before you leave.

But that’s just the starting point.

From there, we’re going to dive in to all new content that I’m creating just for the Complete Coach Seminar.

We’re going to talk about the “Real Rules” of coaching and program design, and why a lot of the stuff you and I have learned over the years just doesn’t fly.

Next, we’re going to dive head first into the assessment process.

We all know that a high-quality assessment is critical to getting someone started on the right foot, but I also think a lot of gurus out there are making assessments 10x more complicated than they need to.

The goal of an assessment should be 3-fold:

  1. To determine the clients goals,
  2. To determine the clients limitations, and
  3. The pick the best exercises for the client based on where they currently stand.

Period. It’s that easy.

But rather than just talk about the assessment process, we’re going to learn by doing.

We’re going to actually dive in and assess some live and in real-time.

This way we not only train your eyes to see how their posture looks, or what flaws they have in their movement, but to help you write a better training program on the back-end.

And on the topic of programming, we all know there’s nothing worse than writing a “general” fitness program.

So to really drive our points home, we’re going to take the assessment we just performed and use that information to write a program.

In this guided process we’ll walk through what exercises are best, how to program sets, reps, rest periods, and everything in between so we write a killer training program that’s guaranteed to gets results.

My goal for Day 1 is to be as good – if not better – than any continuing education you’ve done in recent memory.

But that’s JUST Day 1!

Let’s talk about the rest of the weekend…

Day 2

Coaching and Cuing

On Day 2 we’re going to take a deep dive into the world of coaching.

Too often, we’re haphazard in the cues that we use.

Or we pick exercises based on what we like, versus what is ideal for the client or athlete standing in front of us.

But not any more.

Now that we have a better idea of how people move based on our assessment, we’re going to take a sniper’s approach to coaching, cuing and exercise selection to make sure that every person you work with is set-up for success.

Because let’s be real here: You could give someone every cue in the book, but if they’re doing an exercise that isn’t well suited for them, they’re not going to have success.

And the opposite is true as well: You could pick the ideal exercise for someone, but if they aren’t executing it appropriately, they’re not going to get all the benefits of the exercise, either.

So Day 2 is going to be about nuance.

It’s going to be tweaking and refining your approach to cuing and exercise selection.

And perhaps most importantly, it’s going to give you permission to trust your eyes and instincts, so you can help your clients see even greater levels of success.

Day 3

Case Studies and Final Q&A

Our final half-day will be a catch all of sorts.

We’ll start by debriefing on the weekend, and see what questions we still have that need to be answered.

From there, we’ll continue to focus on case studies and see where we need to spend our final hours together.

  • Do we still need work on our assessment skills?
  • Do we need help refining our programming process?
  • OR, do we need more time cleaning up our coaching cues?

Regardless of what we focus on, this time will help us bring all the pieces together to make sure you walk out of this weekend a better coach than when you walked in.

Learning this programming system has saved us so much time. My coaches are writing programs 5x or 6x faster than they were before — and now, they’re doing it in a way where if a client has a question about WHY they have a certain movement, we have specific answers.

When you use the words used in this system your clients will understand the why behind your programming and they’ll be bought in. Not to mention, you can write world-class programs in half the time!

Not Convinced? Let Me Tell You How Similar We Are…

Now that you’ve learned about the seminar, let me tell you how a guy like me can help a trainer or coach like YOU.

When I took my first job as a trainer, not only was I unhappy with my job, but I was unhappy with myself as well – because I wasn’t getting my clients and athlete’s the results they deserved.

That’s when I made a decision to start investing in myself.

Even though I was making next to nothing, I started investing 10% of every paycheck into continuing education products.

VHS tapes, seminars, you name it – if I thought it would help me get better, I was going to do it.

And frankly, I was shocked at how quickly I started seeing success.

The clients and athletes I worked with started getting results. FAST.

Those successes led to more confidence, and gave me the opportunity to start writing for major publications like T-Nation, Men’s Health, Men’s Fitness, and Bodybuilding.com.

That exposure led to speaking gigs, both in the United States and abroad.

And finally, it gave me the chance to realize my dream – opening my own facility.

Since we opened the doors in 2008, IFAST has been named one of the Top 10 Gyms in America numerous times over by Men’s Health magazine, and recognized as a Women’s Fitness Award winner by Women’s Health.

And during that time I’ve been lucky to 
train everyone from NBA and MLS All-Stars, 
to gen pop clients who simply want to build 
muscle or shed body fat.

Now if you know anything about me, you 
know it pains me to tell you all of this.

I hate talking about myself, or having to 
list off all of my accomplishments.

But I share this with you because while I 
have been very successful over my career, 
I definitely didn’t start off that way.

Because my life, and my career, changed drastically when I started investing in myself.

And I know it can be the same way for you.

But here’s one thing they don’t tell you – you have to invest in the right things.

Nowadays, any pretty face with toned arms or a nice set of abs can tell you “the best way to train.”

But the fact of the matter is, many of those “Instagram trainers” have never coached anyone a day in their life!

When you invest in the Complete Coach Certification, you’re investing not only in yourself, but in a system that is backed by 20 years of in the trenches experience, and that has a proven track record with clients and athletes of all shapes and sizes.

So let’s get down to the nitty gritty…

Before learning from Mike, we had different ways of programming and multiple templates – and our clients didn’t quite understand the point of each phase of our programs. Now we have a streamlined process and common language that all of our coaches use and that clients actually understand. It’s made it easier to give our coaches a way to program – which has helped get our young coaches up to speed much faster.

Andy McCloy

I have been working as a sport scientist/ strength and conditioning coach in professional football (soccer) in the UK for the last 6 years. I have taken things I’ve either heard or read from you and applied it to my own practice and the athletes I’ve been working with, including players in the English premier league, with great success. You are a true inspiration to all us “younger” coaches.

It’s Time to Invest in YOU!

Before we talk about price, let me give you a little insight into what it’s taken to get myself to where I am today.

I’ve easily spent over $100,000 on continuing education over the years.

Everything from VHS tapes, to DVD’s, to webinars, to seminars, to live workshops, to coaching, and everything in between.

And while the knowledge I’ve gained from those materials is great, I wouldn’t be where I am today without the practical side of the equation.

That 20+ years of in-the-trenches experience has been littered with a lot of success, but more than my fair share of failures as well.

But I don’t look at those failures in a negative way – they were learning experiences that allowed me to get better.

  • What if I could download all of those materials – the successes and failures – into one product/seminar that will jump start your career and take you to newfound heights?
  • What if you didn’t have to take those lumps, or make as many mistakes as I did?
  • And what if I could truly fast-track your progress, and help you get faster results almost overnight?

I think a fair price could easily be in the thousands of dollars, but I also realize (and remember) what it’s like to make ends meet.

To want to be great(er), but not have the financial means necessary to make it happen.

That’s why you can attend my Complete Coach Certification seminar, get immediate access to the online materials (FOR FREE), plus all the bonus and support materials, for only $997!

Or if you want to split it up, we have a two-pay option as well that just might do the trick.

I realize that might seem like a significant amount to you right now, but imagine how investing in this seminar (and yourself) can change your life.

Imagine being crystal clear on what cue to use, or how to write that perfect program.

Imagine having the confidence so you can charge what you’re really worth – versus what you’re willing to settle for.

And imagine being in a position where you can truly help the people you work with, while taking care of yourself as well.

If you can imagine a better future for yourself, as well as the clients and athletes you work with, then please don’t wait any longer – register for the Complete Coach Seminar today!

Mike’s R7 was the first investment I made in myself as a coach while I was still a student, and it definitely had a huge impact on me.

Athletes Garage

I have been using the R7 method to write all of my programs for 7 years. It’s the most comprehensive, yet simple to understand method I have encountered. I use it for all my clients, and teach it to any new trainer that I hire.

Testimonials from Fellow Trainers and Coaches

If you ask any Strength and Conditioning Coach or Personal Trainer what they struggle with the most, the majority will say programming. The R7 approach to training was a game changer for me

Not only did it help me get better buy in from my clients and athletes, but it also gave me a STRUCTURED FRAMEWORK and LENS to look through when sitting down to write a program. This approach to training and writing programs has helped me write BETTER PROGRAMS, FASTER! 

This approach can be used to write programs for 1:1 clients, semi private coaching scenarios and even group classes. I encourage any coach who finds themselves taking too long to write programs to look into the R7 approach! You will not be disappointed. 

Sephen Calarco

As an owner of a training facility, I need to keep myself and my staff’s knowledge up to par with the latest applied knowledge pertaining to functional anatomy. Mike’s systems always put you in a position of learning and applying the latest concepts and give you a firm base at which to build out your programs for your clients.

I have been in the game 9 years and always turn to Mike when I’m looking to upgrade my gray matter. If you are struggling to wade through all the info you encounter out there, give yourself 2 legs to stand on and get this course. You will be lightyears ahead by the time you are through and even more so as you apply it Monday morning.

The R7 model has helped simplify my training strategy and has improved the results with my clients. Mike’s videos have helped enhance my knowledge of movement in regard to progressions, regressions, and which coaching cues that work best with clients.

Mike’s system has cleared up my communication with my clients and increase both myself and my clients understanding of what the true objectives of each movement is. The system is flexible and can be utilized with every client.

Steven Davis

With the R7 system it is much easier and faster to write great programs. The system covers absolutely everything I need to help my clients achieve their goals. Coach Robertson teaches how and why put all the components of the program together in a simple and efficient way. No doubt it’s the best product I’ve ever had access to.

Edu Berticelli

I have gained confidence in my ability to program effective programs for all populations. By taking a few RTS courses I learned more applicable concepts than when I studied Health & Fitness in college. I have drastically decreased my time programming which has allowed me to focus more on being a wife, mom and build better relationships with our clients. Our athletes are moving more efficiently and their bodies are being transformed, making them crave the next training session.

4 Reasons Not to attend the Complete Coach Certification seminar…

Now look, I think this seminar is going to be pretty freakin’ sweet.

After all, it’s the compilation of at least $100k of continuing education and 20 years of in-the-trenches coaching experience.

But even still, there are certain people that just flat out should NOT attend.

Here are a few examples…

If you want the same-old, regurgitated programming and coaching advice that most of the other gurus give…

I hate to say it, but there’s a lot of misinformation out there when it comes to programming and coaching.

If you think clients and athletes should always be cued “chest up, arch hard”….

…if you think every client and athlete should be programmed on a 2:1 (or 3:1) ratio of pulling to pressing…

…or if you think barbell back squatting, bench pressing and deadlifting are the only lifts your clients and athletes need…

…this seminar won’t be for you.

You’d rather read 5,000 blogs, listen to 200+ podcasts, or watch every Instagram and YouTube video I’ve created rather than pay for one all-encompassing product.

I’ve created a lot of free content over the years.

And if you went through everything I’ve ever created – from the articles, to the videos, to the podcasts – you might be able to get a lot of this info for free.

But rather than wasting all that extra time combing through the archives (and potentially reading old or outdated material), why not get the one product that has all of the information you need?

The certification that’s not only current and up-to-date, but that also features a ton of materials I’ve never covered in the past?

Like I said up front, my goal is to make this the ONE PRODUCT you need to become a better trainer or coach period.

If you can’t get behind that, then this isn’t the product for you.

You’d rather make an excuse than find a real solution.

Here’s a fact that some people won’t like to hear:

Some people would rather give you every excuse in the book as to why they can’t get better, rather than find an actual solution that helps them with their problem.

“I’m a poor strength coach/personal trainer, and don’t have the money to do this.” (I.e., I’m not really serious about investing in myself – or I lack the confidence that I can take this and make it work for me.)

“I’m already working 12/14/16 hour days…I don’t have the time to do continuing education.” (I.e. I hang out in the gym a lot, coach part of the time, but I’m not willing to really commit to my personal growth as a coach.)

“I’ve tried everything else, and I know this seminar won’t work for me.” (I.e. I’ve spent a lot of money on other programs, followed through a little, so I don’t want to invest in something else that I’m unsure will work.)

If you just want to make another excuse, this seminar isn’t for you.

You aren’t REALLY serious about getting better…

Last but not least, some coaches and trainers simply aren’t ready to invest themselves and get better.

And you know what? I’m fine with that…but I don’t think they’ll be in our industry very long.

Instead, the people who are serious about improving themselves…

…who want to take their continuing education to the next level…

…and the one who want to have the systems in place so they can get real results, are the ones who will want to attend the Complete Coach Certification Seminar.

So which one will you be?

Please don’t wait any longer – the industry needs YOU to become a Complete Coach!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a payment plan for the certification?


We have both a 2- and 3-pay plan if you’d like to break up the registration fee. Charges will be billed 30-days apart.

I’ve already invested in the cert…do I have to pay to attend?

I’ve already had this question come up a couple of times, so I’m going to go ahead and answer it here:

Even if you have already taken the certification, you still need to pay for the Complete Coach Seminar.

Now I like to think of myself as a man of the people, but there’s a ton of time and effort that goes into hosting a live event, and I simply can’t give that away for free.

Furthermore, as I’ve alluded to, there’s going to be a ton of “new stuff” that goes on during this event.

You can’t put a price tag on being at an event where I can answer YOUR questions live and in-person.

Plus, while I love learning online as much as the next person, I firmly believe that live events are the single-best way to really absorb and retain new information.

So while I appreciate everyone who has already invested in the cert, please think of the Complete Coach Seminar as a stand-alone product that will continue to fast-track your coaching and program design skills.

Is the certification right for me? I’m not sure if I can do this…

This is a common question, as many people assume that just because I’m “Mike Robertson” that they can’t be successful using my system.

Not true.

In fact, this is the exact system that we’ve used with every member of our staff – from coaches to interns – to help get them up to speed on our program design, coaching and cuing.

The beauty in all this is in the simplicity – I don’t want thing to be complex.

I want to make things simple.

And between the seminar itself, the Complete Coach Cert videos, the program design templates, the progressions and regressions and everything in between, I’m confident you can be successful using this system as well.


Do you offer CEU’s for the certification?


We are now officially accredited through the NSCA for 2.0 CEU’s for the 2024-2026 reporting period.

That amounts to a FULL YEAR of continuing education credits just for going through this course!

Once you’ve completed the seminar simply login to you online portal, take the short quiz, and you’ll be all set!

Will you be recording and selling the seminar footage?

While recording and selling live events was something I did back in the day, I WILL NOT be doing it with this seminar.
