Are You Letting Key Areas

Undermine Your Training and Racing Results?

Do you…

  • Struggle through your weekly workouts?

  • Lack clarity about what you should really be doing?

  • Train harder and longer and still feel frustrated with your results?

  • Feel confused on whether or not to include Pilates, Yoga, or programs like Crossfit and PX90 in your training routine?

Chances are you don’t understand essential training principles that I call key areas.

The bad news is that by neglecting these key areas of training, you’re likely sabotaging your overall training progress.  And the longer you ignore key areas, the more likely you’ll suffer from reduced power, speed, strength, and training-related injuries.

The good news is that you’re not alone.  And I’m here to help.

If you really want to take control of your training, eliminate obstacles that limit your progress, and get on the fast-track to RESULTS, then keep reading.

The clients I work with struggle their training, and are frustrated with their race results. They suffer from training-related injuries, or they’re just not making any progress with their programs.  They’ve lost speed, strength, and power despite all the training hours they’ve invested, all the effort they’ve committed, and all the training methods they’ve used.

If you’re like my clients and share their frustrations, it’s most likely because your training program is neglecting one or more of these key training areas.

These hidden threats slow your training, and limit your training potential.  And, if you’re constantly battling injuries, neglecting one or more key training areas is the likely culprit.  And once you’re injured, the road to recovery and pain-free training is long and hard — if ever you reach that level again.

If you don’t address these critical key areas early on, your training and race results are doomed to be sub-optimal.

With so many training approaches available, it’s often confusing to understand which ones are ideal for you.  Even worse, which may even slow you down.   Navigating the hundreds of training options available today is a real challenge, and without an understanding of these key areas, making an informed decision becomes nearly impossible.

Having a solid coaching mentor who really understands the key areas, will help you understand which training approaches will help you reach your personal goals.  Who has the time for inefficient training methods in their weekly routine?  Or worse, who can afford to skip essential elements that will lead to better results?

You may be considering building yoga, Pilates, or one of the latest training fads such as Crossfit or PX90 into your training program.  Without first addressing the key areas, you may be wasting your time.  Reading the Training Manifest will help you better understand what you should focus on to get the most out of your training time.

Doing exercise for exercise sake is not a smart training strategy.  The best strategy that supports real results is having a clear understanding of what your individual strengths and deficits are.  Yoga, Pilates, Crossfit, and PX 90 and other training methods can be very useful and enjoyable training methods once you’ve first addressed the key areas discussed in my Training Manifest.  Otherwise, you may actually be holding yourself back from reaching your true potential.

Remember: the most effective training methods are always based on sound training principles. 

Understanding your individual strength and flexibility imbalances is critical when planning your training program.  Otherwise, you’re training in an indiscriminate way.  In other words – you’re guessing.  In fact, you may actually be making your imbalances worse without even knowing it.

I say this with confidence.  Not to brag, but my findings are grounded in my work with over a thousand endurance athletes – runners, triathletes, rowers and cyclists —  and nearly two decades physical therapy.

Real results come when you address whole body flexibility and strength deficit imbalances that can only be determined through my full body evaluation.   More than 50% of the endurance athletes I’ve evaluated using my Body Balance Evaluation, come to me because they suffer from chronic training-related injuries that have not responded to traditional medicine.  Most of these athletes have used one or more of the training methods discussed earlier.

Their immediate goal was straightforward: to once again train pain-free.

Unfortunately using random training methods never guarantees you’ll be resistant to injury, or improve your speed and power.  Without knowing where you are, how can you know how to improve your results?

A better, more informed understanding of how key training principles influence the success of your training will help you take control and become a more effective endurance athlete.  You’ll learn proven-effective training concepts that improve your strength, speed, and power.  Most important, understanding key principles will help you become more resistant to injury.

Have you struggled with your training?  Felt really flat and noticed that you’ve actually been getting slower?  Then it’s time to re-evaluate what you’re doing.

You may start questioning your training program, nutrition, sleep, and your strength and flexibility program.  But where should you start?

First, you need to determine if your program incorporates the key training elements which are discussed in my Training Manifest.  Skipping just one of these critical elements can dramatically impact your entire performance.

Are you experiencing any of the following?

  • Tightness during and after training sessions?
  • Loss of power while training, especially as your session progresses?
  • Recurring training-related injuries that limit your time on the road?
  • Inability to generate good sustained speed?
  • A lack of endurance, especially with longer training sessions?
  • A loss of strength or the feeling that you’re getting weaker?
  • Trouble recovering after a training sessions?

If you answered YES to any of the above questions, please keep reading.

My Training Manifest explains what elements you must include when you plan your training program.

The concepts presented in my Training Manifest are built on a solid foundation.  When you build them into your program and commit to them, they will help you become faster, stronger, and more injury resistant.  Using these strategies will give you a peace of mind knowing that you’re optimizing your training time, and getting the most out of your daily workouts.

I wrote my Training Manifest to help my fitness followers better understand the training process, and to focus on what really matters.  The Manifest covers a lot of ground and is more of a summary, as entire books have been written on many of the topics I discuss.  My goal is to help my readers ask better questions about what they’re doing with their training programs.

Be confident that I use the same training concepts on myself as I do with all my private one-on-one clients.  Applying these concepts will systematically improve your speed, strength, and flexibility, and make you more resistant to training-related injuries.

So, you may ask why I’m giving away some of my biggest training secrets — for free?  Because I was blessed to have worked with so many great coaches who shared their best secrets with me, and it only cost me my time and commitment.  And now, its my turn to share them with you.

Back in 2008, I decided to sell my interest in my physical therapy practice so I could share all my experience and knowledge with the endurance world.  I realized that my real passion and talent centered in human sports performance, and I wanted to share this with as many endurance athletes as possible.

Now, I devote all my energy toward helping people excel in their training and racing.

Since October of 2008 I have worked with more than 1,000 endurance athletes as a Body Balance expert, and have helped each of them to progress to the next level.  The Training Manifest enables me to share part of my expertise with a far greater number of endurance athletes — many of whom, for a variety of reasons, I can’t work with on a personal level.  I hope that after reading my Manifest, you too will start asking better and more focused questions about how you can improve your training program.

While entire books have been written on many of the topics I discuss, I felt it better to give condensed summaries of the key areas that lead to success.  The benefit is that you can immediately starting using these ideas to improve your training.   All of the concepts discussed form the basis for developing a solid training program, and are the same elements I use with my private clients.  You must include these concepts if you want to get incredible training and race results every time.

Whether you want to get faster, stronger, and more powerful, or you just want to remain injury free, you must focus on these key areas to improve your training condition.  Take the step today to make your training far more efficient, fun, and effective!

I can’t take full credit for discovering most of the principles mentioned in my Training Manifest.  But …

My endurance sports career started at the ripe old age of nine when I ran 2.25 miles with my dad.  I really did those first few runs just so I could drink some Gatorade.  You see, my dad would only let me have Gatorade if I ran with him.

So that got me started.

That was back in 1973 when Gatorade was the latest cool drink and I had to have some.  Soon, I was hooked on any endurance activity — running, cycling, rowing, and swimming — and I gladly did it without the Gatorade incentive.

My life was soon revolved around rowing, which ultimately lead me to competing on three Olympic Teams (92, 96, and 00), and winning four world championships for the United States.

My passion for endurance sports and the human body did not stop on the water.  I became a licensed physical therapist (Columbia University) in 1991, and practiced (16 of my 18 year career) at two world class hospitals — The Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) in NYC, and The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP).

These experiences lead me to a point where I became frustrated hearing clients tell me time and again that their doctors had advised them to give up their sports because of recurring injuries. Equally frustrating was that many patients with chronic training-related injuries failed to respond to traditional medicine.  What I began to realize was that most people didn’t understand key areas of training.

My job now is to educate athletes and share my key training principles with them.

When I left my physical therapy practice, I started my Body Balance business with no customers or income.  Giving up a stable source of income when you have a wife, three kids, mortgages, etc. is quite stressful.  But I was very confident in the powerful training system I had created which had already helped many endurance athletes to succeed on many levels.  Whether they had suffered from chronic training-related injuries, or just wanted to become faster, stronger and more powerful.

Have you ever been told by a doctor to stop your endurance sport and find something else to do?

I can’t tell you how many endurance athletes I’ve seen over two decades of practice that were told by their physicians to give up their sporting activity because of a chronic training pain.  Once we began applying these principled training methods, they completely recovered and returned to their favorite sport — pain-free.

If you’ve ever been told by your doctor to give up the endurance sport you love and didn’t’ apply the concepts discussed, then it’s possible you stopped unnecessarily.  Or, have you spent several months in physical therapy doing rehabilitation, or tried the latest exercise methods — all to no avail?  Maybe you just feel ‘stuck’ and feel like you’re not improving.  Then there is a good chance that you’re skipping one or more of the key areas discussed in the Manifest.

As an endurance athlete, you get a rush when you’re out on the road going as fast as you can.  The reality is no endurance athlete wants to spend all day in the gym doing ineffective training exercises, or focusing on things that don’t produce significant results.   But that’s what many endurance athletes do each and every day when they don’t include these key concepts into their daily routine.

Now, I’m finally sharing the same key training concepts that I use for myself and my private clients. 

You’re probably asking why I would share the same concepts with you?   Well to be honest, I can’t work with that many private clients, and I feel that it is my obligation to share these concepts with as many endurance athletes as possible.  You see, I know how critical it is to be focused on the right things with your training.

When I started training with the best coaches in the world, I started to understand all the mistakes I had been making.  Before I got to the elite level, I was not privy to many of these same concepts.  Some of the concepts I share in the Training Manifest come from my own personal work — things I’ve uncovered — and aren’t common knowledge.

If you have questions like, how can I get rid of my chronic related training pain without spending months in therapy or just quitting the sport?  Or, how can I get the results I want without spending all day doing a bunch of random strengthening and flexibility exercises that never seem to create positive results?  While I strongly recommend that clients with chronic training-related injuries seek out medical professionals who have personal experience and actually participate in endurance sports, using the concepts in my Training Manifest will help you start training longer, going faster, and avoiding injuries.

The Training Manifest will help you:

  • Increase your strength in a more balanced way
  • Understand how to improve your overall strength and endurance
  • Create more power when you’re out on the road
  • Efficiently improve your flexibility
  • Become more injury resistant
  • Feel stronger during training

Applying these concepts to your training program will help organize your training into a more systemic approach.  They are the same concepts I use with private clients, such as Eric Esposito — a typical endurance who was suffering from chronic training related pain in his back that failed to get better following nine months of physical therapy.

The fact is the treatment he received failed to include some of the key concepts covered in my Training Manifest.  Because of this, his results were inconsistent and he was unable to return to rowing without moderate pain.

Eric talks below about how he benefited from my Body Balance Evaluation Process (discussed in the Training Manifest) and how it changed his rowing career options.  Before he went through the process, he had no options.  Now — he’s being recruited by top collegiate rowing programs!

High School Sculler Overcomes Months of

Chronic Low Back Pain After Body Balance Evaluation.

As a junior sculler, I struggled with back pain through the fall season of 2011.  It soon began affecting my performance on and off the water.  After several trips to the orthopedist and several months of physical therapy, I was still having back pain. With the approaching spring season, the lack of results was extremely frustrating.  My coach attended one of Coach Kaehler’s 2-Day Body Balance Clinics for coaches and rowers, and thought that he (Coach K) could help me.

I went to see Coach K in February, for one visit, where he identified my strength and flexibility deficiencies.  After about six weeks of doing the individualized “Body Balance” corrective exercise program I received on that first visit, I began to row, again, with much less pain. I kept up my exercises through the spring season, and by May, I was rowing pain free.

I saw Coach K, again, at the end of May, and we added erging and strength training into my program.  

By the end of June, I had a new 2k PR on the erg and in July, my quad earned a gold medal at Club Nationals. Coach K’s Body Balance program really does work.

The concepts discussed in the Training Manifest apply to all endurance athletes including runner, triathletes, cyclists, swimmers, and rowers.  By applying these simple but powerful concepts, I’ve been able to help many triathletes, runners, cyclist and even swimmers not only improve their performance, but also in many cases return to pain-free training.

Using an exercise system (Body Balance process) that’s based on many of the key areas discussed in the Manifest, will always lead to consistent improvement.

In 2007-08, I had the opportunity to work with the Men’s National Rowing Team as they prepared for the summer Olympics in Beijing.  The first step in working with the team was to test each and every athlete using my Body Balance Evaluation Process (whole-body strength and flexibility assessment).

In a short period of time (six weeks), training-related injuries began to disappear while individual performances quickly improved.

The Training Manifest helps you focus on what matters most for your training program.  When you apply these key training elements, you’ll begin to make changes that you never thought were possible.

“This past year, I along with the entire US Olympic Men’s Heavyweight Sweep Team, worked with Bob on strength and conditioning as well as his Body Balance Process.  I found Bob’s knowledge of the sport of rowing, biomechanics, physiology, and his overall demeanor to be most impressive.  Bob’s program helped improve my power and mechanic coordination. And as a result, I was able to pull a personal best on my 2k erg score this year — and I did so while wearing a V02 mask.  

Obviously it is up to you to put in the work and fulfill your end of the bargain, but in terms of teachers — Bob is one of the best.”

If you’re looking for a document that cuts out all the guess work, gets right to the point, and lets you know what the critical components of training are, then you’ll want to get my Training Manifest.

If you think reaching your true training potential is going to be easy, or that you can ‘wing-it’, then the Training Manifest is not for you.  Do not waste your time downloading it if you believe you can get top results without much effort, or that you can make training up as you go along.

This document will save you lots of time and effort, and help you focus on what really matters.

When you apply these ideas results will improve!

Do YOU Feel Like You Are Doing a Bunch of Random Strength Training Exercises and Not Getting The Results You Want?

The Training Manifest will help you to:

  • Get laser focused on what’s truly important when it comes to training
  • Better integrate the training elements that best suit your current needs
  • Learn some of the key training principles that all successful training programs use
  • Be more efficient with your training
  • Properly Integrate rest periods and apply basic nutrition to your life


Who is the Training Manifest for?

I hate to sound so direct, but you need to hear the truth about what really matters, and I just want to make sure that you’re the right person to download the Training Manifest.

If you’re not serious about training, or taking care of your body in a disciplined manner, then this document is not for you.  If your goals are to lose a few pounds, or tone your arms, you’d be better off heading to the salon or gym than reading my Manifest.

This document is for endurance athletes who are dead serious about their training, and want to know how to properly develop their bodies.  It’s geared to those endurance athletes who understand that the road to success requires a lot of commitment and perseverance.

Dedicated to Making You Faster, Stronger, and More Injury Resistant!

    The link says that this “report will change the way you train forever.”

    If you don’t believe this statement to be true, then you did not open the report. End of story.

    Coach Kaehler, thank you.

Got something to say?
