A great guy came to visit me a few months ago to learn from me and what I do at TSS. He was sick and tired of training in a typical Anytime Fitness gym. If you want to make changes, you must make sacrifices. This guy, Chris Eacho, is going to be an ass kicker because he has the right mind set. He doesn't spend his free time bitching and complaining, he takes action to make himself better. I love it.
I think YouTube is awesome. Maybe its the anonymity that allows people to be so crazy with the things they say, but nonetheless, if you ever want to have a good laugh and you're not too sensitive, just start reading the comments on any popular YouTube video. People are absolutely ruthless. Fortunately, I think it's just plain funny because I have thick skin, and it actually gives me great ammunition to throw back at anyone else who does something worthy of ridicule. Well, I just wanted to take a few moments to share some awesome comments I have received over the years via the interwebs, and please feel free to share your thoughts if you like. I realize this is kind of a shameless plug of myself and a free testimonial from the people, but I didn't make anybody write the stuff ;p
If none of the experts ever gave back, we would have only a bunch of idiots walking around telling others what to do.

The only thing that is underground about this gym is its location. This is how many gyms are around here. You walk into a building with no sign on the wall and go down a bare hallway, then down some stairs. You feel like you're in an old apartment building just heading downstairs to fix the boiler. All of a sudden you are surrounded with muscle building equipment. I loved it, here it is...
