It has been a while...

I will never make a professional blogger. No surprise there. Right?

A lot has been going on lately, but here is the cliff notes version:

I have found a great friend and mentor in John Brookfield. He is quite possibly the wisest man I have ever known. He has also become one of the greatest friends I have ever had. John has taught me so much about training, but even more about life and how a man should live it. It is simply amazing to think about all the wisdom that John has and how he lives his life as he preaches. John is a man of impeccable character and integrity. He is a friend of God. He is a true leader. He is my friend. 

I say all of that to say that I was blessed enough to work on a DVD project with John. It's The Beyond Bodyweight Training System. This DVD is the perfect choice for anyone who wants to truly become stronger; both mentally and physically. If you decide to check this DVD out, you will not be disappointed. It is full of John's training wisdom and it reveals the keys to true strength.

This past weekend, John and I were at the Staley Performance Institute in Arizona where we presented The Beyond Bodyweight Training System to a great group of coaches and trainers. This was an awesome experience. Everyone had a great time and I made some new friends. The best part of all is that I went there to teach and I ended up being a student. I learned more than I taught. Life is funny that way. John is the greatest teacher I have ever known. If you ever get a chance to attend one of his certifications or lectures, you owe it to yourself to get there. You will not be disappointed. In the physical training world, John makes sense out of chaos. 

You can catch John next weekend at the Perform Better Functional Training Summit in Rhode Island. For more information, go to

Have a great week. I'll try to blog more often!
