We got Jon set up with Chiropractic, A.R.T., K-Laser, and Graston yesterday, so get ready for results. We are also going to blood test all athletes, so we can individualize supplements, nutrition, and vitamins.

Next year, Learn 2 Lift seminars are scheduled all over the US: Dunmore, PA, Jersey Shore, Miami, Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Orlando, Myrtle Beach, Albuquerque, San Antonio, Rhode Island, and we are scheduling Minneapolis and Wilmington, NC as we speak.
