Bench Press in SoCal

What a fantastic weekend down here in Orange County, California, at Fitness Business Summit.

I delivered two presentations to the 500+ person crowd yesterday, one at 9am PST and the other at 9pm PST (!). The first was a 9.5 / 10 - and included THREE fart jokes that went over really well. The second pres was about an 8.5 / 10. I did a tough love section in the 2nd one that was a little experimental.

It was great hanging out with all the "CTT kids". Great to see Derek Wahler, Catherine Gordon, Ray Ortiz, Amy Dodd, Lesa Gutenkunst, Cara Eckerman, John Marchiano, Kate Vidulich, Dani Woodrum, Mikey Pancakes, and so many other CTT's here at FBS. And fantastic to meet young Nestor Flores, CTT, for the first time - he is taking a real 'gamble' on investing in CTT and FBS and it's paying off big time for him.

Wonderful weekend warm-up...for the TT Summit in June!

Today's workout was done at 24-Hour Fitness across the street. And it was a great Meathead training session.

Alright, now it's off to LA for an early flight on Monday morning as I make my way back to Cold Canadia. In the meantime, use this 7-minute circuit to start your week right, a'ight?

Getting social support is a huge key to success. However, removing as many of the negative influences in your life as possible is equally, if not more, important.
