I am attending Club Industry at McCormick place in Chicago this week to learn from some of the best in the industry. Looking forward to sharing their insights in the coming weeks and months as I implement any of their great ideas!

Sergio is the fitness expert for NBC5 news in Chicago, a regular contributor for Men’s Fitness Magazine and former Executive Director of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness & Sports. Excellent presentation and outstanding fitness professional – it was an honor to hear his talk.
PS Did anyone catch the Billy Madison reference? Anyone?
What an honor! I had the distinct pleasure of listening to Captain Charlie Plumb’s presentation this weekend in Boca Rotan, Florida. A former Navy fighter pilot and Vietnam P.O.W., his beautifully crafted speech inspired each of us to re-evaluate our mental prisons and choose the right attitude for success.

My favorite quote from his speech?
“Adversity is a horrible thing to waste.”
Not only is he an American hero, he is a terribly funny and nice person. Took the time to take a picture with me. With no one around to take the photo, he asked if I had long arms. My reply, “like an ape.” We leaned in close and grabbed this great shot.
Thank you, Captain Plumb!
