Don’t have Time To Train?  I don’t believe you.

If you want to train, you will make time or find time.  Spend less time on the Internet, watching TV and doing other things to fill the gaps in your day.  Wake up 20 minutes early.  Train during your lunch break, after work or late at night.

Don’t feel like it?  Do it anyway.  It’s easy to make excuses.  You’ll feel better if you train.

Not sure how to get started?  No problem.  You can read the Internet, listen to others at the gym, experiment on your own or ask for help.  With the excess information out there, you can read everything and not know where to start.  I’d love to help…Contact me for online programming.  It’s Time to Train!
