Congratulations –  You’re taking steps to change your life for the better! Personal training will increase your awareness of health, fitness, and nutrition so you can achieve your goals and feel great…and we’re here to help.

In addition to our resources and blog, this newsletter will help keep you motivated and educated with all kinds of great information.

We’ll include a few quotes here and there to keep you thinking – even quotes from where most people would least expect it – the greatest music in the world, heavy metal. This is, after all, personal training that ROCKS! We prefer quotes that force you to question yourself and your world in a meaningful way.


Trainers Bob & Tracy

“Do you care to be the layer of the bricks that seal your fate, or would you rather be the architect of what we might create?”

– ‘Architects’ by the band Rise Against

“I walk beside you, but you may not see me. The strongest among you may not wear a crown.”

– ‘Citizen/Soldier’ by the band 3 Doors Down

“The opposite for courage is not cowardice, it is conformity. Even a dead fish can go with the flow.”

– Jim Hightower

“Have you ever been caught in a sea of despair and the moment of truth is the day that you say ‘I’m not scared’?”

– ‘Unity’ by the band Shinedown

“Don’t ever let yourself be a victim. Our culture thrives on victimhood. We love to invoke ‘I can’t’ and make excuses. The truth is we tend to make time and have money for what we think is important. You & I can’t change everyone else, but we sure can change the one looking at us in the mirror. Resolve to do that, and you’ll lead by example and find the world lining up to follow. Be the change you want to see and refuse to blame others or circumstances.”

– Joel Salatin

“The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty.”

– Winston Churchill

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”

– Wayne Gretzky

“The true measure of a man is not how he behaves in moments of comfort and convenience, but how he stands at times of controversy and challenge.”

– Martin Luther King Jr.

“Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it.”

– Plato

“You’re just sliding painfully back if you’re not striving forward. Make your stand, burn the bridge to the place where your fear lives. Own your world. Some live by the limits set upon them, others will commit to the task of destroying them.”

– ‘Own Your World’ by the band Hatebreed

“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”

– Theodore Roosevelt
