An e-mail from a client who should know that he can only see in me what lies within him.
I was catching up on your blog this morning and really enjoyed reading your posts. While I was reading and appreciating and reading and appreciating... I realized how incredibly special this 5'4" fireball of a straight guy has become to me.
When I was looking for a trainer over two years ago, I wanted to learn some new exercises to freshen up my routine. That was pretty much it. I definitely got a fresh routine, along with an entirely new way of thinking about my health. I also got instant access to leading edge knowledge about health and fitness... and life. I learned so freaking much unconventional wisdom about food that I feel like I should write a book. Oh, and you have already done that too - in your spare time. You are an influential and effective teacher and the things you have taught me have changed my life forever.
But more importantly this 5'4" fireball turned out to be one of the most genuine, caring and intelligent people I have ever known. Every time I come to visit, I leave feeling better - and not just because of the great workout. There is a peace and ease about you that is addictive and contagious. You have qualities that make me say, "Damn! I want to be like that!" That is true inspiration, my friend.
Congratulations on being Andrew. I just had to get that off my chest.
