PowerSport is finally open in Houston, Texas
Well folks after battling the infections in my repaired Achilles tendon and ankle for the last 6 months the gym is finally open!! It has been a long hard road but I have worked too hard to just quit...it's just not in my nature. One of my favorite quotes and one that is framed in my office says:
"A Champion is someone who gets up even when he can't"
Those of you who know me know that this is exactly how I've lived my entire life!!! How do you live your life?? Do you quit at the first sign of adversity or do you keep driving towards your goals? Setbacks are not only part of life in sports but part of life in general and how you respond to these setbacks will tell people about your character. We all fail sometimes, I know I have during this time but I quickly picked myself up and got back to life. You can't do it alone, you have to surround yourself with positive people who support you and I've been blessed to have just that beginning with my sweetheart Sally. Those of you and you know who you are that checked in on me and encouraged me I thank you.
Well got to get busy living life that's one thing I damn sure learned through all of this. Stop in for a workout anytime!!!

Professional Strongman Travis Ortmayer gets some training in
Professional Strongman Travis Ortmayer came in and got some solid training in at the gym!!! Travis is one of the top strongman competitors in the world. You have seen him competing on TV in the World's Strongest Man competitons as well as Strongman Champions League and in IFSA World Championships. Travis is known as the Texas Stoneman due to his dominance and record breaking in the Atlas Stones. This training session was all about the truck deadlift but first he started out with some easy pulls at 290kg before going outside in the Texas heat and humidity!!! (There are pictures from the truck deadlift in the Media section)
Travis is an awesome athlete and even nicer guy. Enjoyed talking training with someone who thinks like I do!!! There will be many more training sessions with Travis in the future.
