Message from Daniel

Was gonna write about some hate mail I got on FB

But when I got into SF HQ yesterday

I saw an email from Daniel

He’s only been here a month or so

Was a fit and healthy guy already

Did lots of yoga

But hadn’t done one class since he started here

This is what he had to say

“I was standing solid on my mat, firm and controlled in each posture.

I was able to use my strength to manoeuvre with control into positions I never reached before.

Despite my flexibility it’s really the strength that’s the glue holding yoga poses together.

I left on actually quite a high”

I replied to him saying strength is something I value more than most



Because it literally changed my life

When you get stronger it’s not just about lifting a heavy weight in the gym

As Daniel found out it benefited something he would never have thought

Getting stronger makes everything easier

From yoga to carrying bags to picking up kids

But most importantly you develop a mental strength

And that’s the best benefit of them all

Daniel went on to say

“it’s clearly down the work I’ve been doing with you and the science behind the routine.”

That’s the key point here

We don’t just lift weights or push ourselves for the sake of it

Every person is given a routine that address what their body needs

And every body is different

Hence the personal nature of all the training plans here

Apply for one here

P.S. There was also another email which called me rude and aggressive

Which I’m extremely thankful for

That one I will definitely fill you in on tomorrow
