Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

We arrive during an era of desperation and turmoil: a gun-shy economy teetering on the edge of neuroses, a nation boldly facing both domestic and foreign terror, a society wallowing in massive unemployment, and an environment turgid with natural disasters. Worse still, traveling around the world for the past decades I've ...

Monday, April 12th, 2010

I've had the honor of working with our CST Head Coach Alberto Gallazzi for several years now. And each new country he has assisted me in teaching, Sweden, Italy, Israel, has left a better impact than had I done the same without his presence. After discussions with our faculty directors ...

Whether veiled within humor or outright "bootcamp" hazing, encouraging pushing people well-beyond their physical limits represents everything that health-first fitness opposes.
