You are exactly right to make this a "prerequisite" for
your other courses and seminars. I came upon you
quite by accident and at first sought only information
that I thought I needed. I pulled info "out of
order" - (Complete Strength Spec. Course first then
seminar (GB) then purchase of other material.) In

Many thanks for a great experience. Thanks!

I can truly see your
passion for training through your materials. My

Foundations of Physical Preparation course. I
canít say enough about your materials thus far.
