  • Who I am….

    I'm a school teacher who has a passion for strength and conditioning. Over the years I have gained knowledge from the books, but more importantly through life experience and continued learning. My passion has turned into a side business. I see my responsibility as: 1. developing my trainees' strength throughout the whole body, not parts and pieces, both physically and mentally, and 2. to educate people on proper, effective exercise. If you train with me you will not get a cheerleader, but you will get somebody who will push and encourage you so that you will attain your goals. If you want to whine and not work hard, then find another trainer. It doesn't matter if you are a middle aged housewife or a college athlete-I can get you where you want to go, but only if you want it! If you are interested in training or nutritional counseling to achieve your goals, then please get in touch. Progress, not perfection! -Sweat Equity

Quotes

**“We do not stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing!”
Ben Franklin

**”It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up.”              
Vince Lombardi

**Rules of Life
This list is often incorrectly attributed to Bill Gates, but the author is actually Charles J. Sykes, best known as the author of “Dumbing Down Our Kids: Why American Children Feel Good about Themselves, but Can’t Read, Write, or Add.”

1. Life is not fair; get used to it.

2. The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

3.  You will NOT make 40 thousand dollars a year right out of high school. You won’t be a vice president with a car phone until you earn both.

4. If you think your teacher is tough; wait till you get a boss.

5. Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grand parents had a different word for burger-flipping. They called it opportunity.

6. If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault; so don’t whine about your mistakes; learn from them.

7. Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parents’ generation, try delousing the closet in your room.

8. Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not. Some schools have abolished failing grades, and they’ll give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

9. Life is not divided into semesters. You don’t get summers off, and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time.

10. Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

11. Be nice to nerds. Chances are you will end up working for one.

**“You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.”
Winston Churchill

“If you hold a cat by the tail you learn things you cannot learn any other way.”
Mark Twain

What life is not….
“‘Life is not a journey to the grave with the
intention of arriving safely in a pretty
and well preserved body,
but rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up,
totally worn out,
and loudly proclaiming,
“Holy Shit! What a ride!”‘
