Imagine this; you wake up alone in a hospital. Every time you touch your skin, no matter how gently, you bruise. To the point, if you roll over wrong or you scratch an itch, or you rub your eye, you may wake up the next day with hundreds of bruises. Not only that, but you’re also told by doctors and surgeons that you have a disease, an affliction that only one in a million people will ever get. How would you act? What goes through your mind? If you’ve ever spent time in a hospital, you know what that environment feels like. You know the smell. You know the sounds, and the footprints. You see the urgency of doctors and nurses, the beeps, the clangs, and the bangs. There’s a deafening silence while you sit in your own head thinking, “where am I, and what’s going to happen?”.
Everyone, our guest today has an extraordinary story, and everything I’ve just described is a part of it. Brendon Rearick came back and is in remission from a very rare condition called Aplastic anemia. I’m going to let him tell this story, but I encourage you to listen up. As with every episode, please understand that nothing in these podcast episodes is just for strength coaches. Nothing is for people in any vacuum type situation. The lessons we experience in our lives are the very things that shape our outcome and our profession and our personal lives. So take heed, listen, and write notes. There’s a lot of great stuff coming your way on today’s episode.
Brendon’s personal mission is to spread the positive by-products of coaching and movement as far as he can using strength and conditioning as his platform.
With a degree in Kinesiology from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Brendon got his start at Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning (MBSC) in Woburn, MA. The growth-focused environment at MBSC motivated Brendon in a way he had never experienced. Over a few short years he progressed to become the Program Director and earned his massage therapy license. Soon thereafter, he started an education company with four co-workers – Certified Functional Strength Coach. In five years, CFSC has certified over 6,500 trainers in over 50 countries.
Now a California resident, Brendon travels and coaches often for Certified Functional Strength Coach, and has recently become an active speaker at the Perform Better summit conferences. His next venture will be opening a gym Train Smarter and Harder with his wife Jenny in the beginning of 2020. With an inexhaustible drive to learn more, practice his craft, and be the best version of himself, Brendon dedicates his free time to continuing education, dancing with his 3-year old daughter, reading, writing, and enjoying the outdoors.
