Howdy from Central California

#1 Postby PigIronFitness » Sun Jul 02, 2006 12:49 pm


I have been reading at the site for some time now and figured it would ba good idea to actually participate on the forum:-)

I am pretty much a walking billboard on how nutrition and exercise can dramatically change your life. 6 years ago I was very overweight, chewing prozac and aching from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet....When the doc couldn't give me a higher dosage than she already prescribed, she turned me onto light therapy, exercise and nutrition......talk about a life changing experience!

I am now a Personal Trainer and Specialist in Sports Nutrition....I love the work I do and I can get pretty militant about my beliefs....I am working on that, however...my clients continue to call, so I can't be all that bad!

Welcome ! :D
Out of my mind...Back in five minutes.

No human can call themselves liberal or radical or even a conservative advocate of fair play, if they contribute in any way to the pain and suffering of other beings.
