PHILOSOPHY There is much I don`t know, much I want to know and a little I understand. What I understand follows: *That quick, easy magic does not exist in any aspect of life. You have to do the work in order to achieve what you want and even then, success is not guaranteed. Many times you will fail but the lessons and experiences will be everlasting. *If you are wanting to lose weight, or become healthier for someone else you will not succeed. You have to do it for yourself. Always reach for your own fullest potential. *We are responsible for our own stuff no one else is, so accept the responsibility. *Each day is a gift. None of us know how long we are going to be here. Make a point to spend some part of every day with the people you care about doing what you enjoy. CLIENT BASE Men and athletes.
