“I want to thank you for the individual training... to prepare me for the CT Senior Games... with one month to prepare, your routine made it possible to participate competitively in my age group (65-69) and received the bronze medal in the javelin throw.... The new and revised program has definitely built my strength and flexibility... first time in six years I got four pars in the first nine holes of golf.”
