Trainerpalooza Recap

Our first Trainerpalooza of 2014 has come and gone. For two days we had Chris Ward, Jim Anthony, Michael Shannon, Steve Richards, Shawn Powers and Jeremy Cioara here at CBT Nuggets HQ. Between round table discussions, meetings with every department, filming, and photo shoots, we kept the trainers busy but we were able to fit some fun in there as well.

Highlights of the visit definitely included our live Q&A with the CBT Nuggets community, as well as our Office Olympics. If you missed the live broadcast, you can catch it here.



Our CBTN-style Office Olympics included events like a 5-hole “golfsticle” course, a Nerf gun shoot-out, a latte making contest and a typing test on the treadmill desk. CBT Nuggets founder and CEO, Dan, made sure to join in the fun competing against the trainers in the golfsticle course and acting as official latte judge.

Any downtime was filled with ping pong, video games, and checking emails.

The King even stopped by one night to provide us a top-notch dinner show!

It’s hard to believe it’s already over, but we can’t wait until next time!
