“My workouts start with a really good stretching session,” “After that, I fire up some of my smaller muscles to get them ready for the next part of my workout. I love kettle bell workouts and pushing the sled—I’ve been doing a lot of that this off season—along with heavy sets of pushups and sit ups.”

*Train like one of the best linebackers in NFL

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
