Praise For One of My Clients...and Friends!

Back in January, I met a young man, Richard Jones, that just finished up his college football career at Texas Tech University. He was #99 and played Defensive Tackle. He wanted me to help him get ready for the NFL Pro Day coming up in a few months.

We worked lots of things, namely his lower body mobility. We saw a ton of improvement over the course of the months, but Rich was being hampered by a recurring hamstring injury. Long story short, he killed it on Pro Day except for the 40 when he had to pull up because of another hammy-pull.

The NFL draft came and went and he had to start from scratch trying to find a new team to call home. He received a break during another tryout where a CFL team really liked what they saw.

Within a couple weeks, Rich was off to Vancouver, BC to play with the BC Lions. Well, that's the good part of the story, because the hamstring was still questionable. His hammy didn't hold up during training camp and was put on the practice squad due to the injury.

He's been waiting all season for his chance, rehabbing and training to get better at his craft. Well, the time is now! Richard will be playing tonight against the Calgary Stampede as the starting Defensive Tackle! Here's a link to his interview with the team media.

Richard's a very special guy with a lot of talent, not just in football. He's gonna make waves in whatever he does and whoever he comes into contact with.

I feel blessed to have been able to get to know him and if anything, help him a little on his journey.

Props to you Big Rich! Kick some butt tonight!

New Post and Some Updates

Wow! Didn’t realize it’s been so long since I’ve posted. Got several things to update:

1st – My little baby girl! My wife and I adopted Britten Karson Marshall who was born July 7. She is such a huge blessing and I don’t know what my life would be like without her! She just turned 2 months old is growing like a weed and changing everyday! It’s amazing to watch!

2nd – I’m starting a new personal blog that will have posts like

the above. Personal insights on the life experience that is me. I don’t really think they’re relative to the trai

ning platform, so I’ll reserve that stuff for my personal blog. Here’s the new blog address:

3rd – I’m shutting down my Facebook page. I might write about that on my personal page, so jump on over there and see if I’ve written about it. ;-)

4th – This blog will be a training and business promotion blog. I really want to separate those two things in my life, so I’ll write about my thoughts on training, my experiences and put anything I’m doing with my training business on here.

That’s about it! I’m almost completely done with construction on my building here at the house and I’m chomping at the bit to get back to training. Four months is too long of a break! I think I have more aches and pains when I'm not in a training routine than when I’m in one full force. Pics of the building will soon follow when we’re done!

That’s about it! Hope all you readers (if there really are any) are doing well in all your parts of the world!
