Okay, now that we've got that out of the way, as the two resident macho-men of the boards, we've batted around the idea of opening a topic where others can join us in talking about something it seems the two of us are more than a little passionate about, in the hopes of attracting like-minded folks looking for tips or wanting to swap information on fitness and/or training.
I know I'm an optimist (and a hopeless romantic), but perhaps between all of us, we may just help motivate others and keep the veterans fired-up.
Use a towel, sign up for raquetball courts well in advance, and please re-rack the weights when you're done.
