He doesn’t “work out”; he TRAINS – hard and smart, using the most basic principles that seem to simplify the complicated. He knows that every “great” and “expensive” program is just a byproduct of the most important fundamentals of science and conditioning which he knows by heart and he lives to share with you all.
