“I started realizing that everyone you work with as a trainer is broken in some way, and I wanted to be able to help that.”

“Emotion and the psyche, in the hierarchical sense, are at the absolute top of the totem pole, the number one things which impact and influence our biology. It’s just an inescapable fact.”

“Try and train your body to the natural rhythms under which we’ve evolved.”
