From my early days of competition to my present day struggle to stay fit at over 60 years of age; I have, through formal education, and countless hours in the gym, developed valuable training information. I believe my years of training and the various methods I tried can save you time and wasted effort as you strive toward your personal fitness goals. I am pleased to share this information with you. Train smart, stay focused, and never quit.
