Ring it on


Hey everybody,


I'm in. I know a lot of people have been waiting for me to get going on this thing, but I have been just crazy busy. With the help of my wonderful girlfriend Candace, we finally got set up this morning. I hope the Q & A was interesting and maybe answered some questions you may have about me.


Since the trials I have been so busy. I wanted to start training immediately, but that was kind of put on hold by a trip to New York for some fund raising, and I actually got to be at the ringing of the 'Closing Bell' on Wall Street. I'm in the way back, next to Lee Kemp, because I had just finished arm throwing one of the analysts(Dylan Ratigan, Fast Money). So I barely made it, but it was a great experience. The training has been great since them. Very tough and the team has responded well. No whining and a very positive energy around our room. We have pushed through tough situations and been smart when we have had to.


We started our first camp in Colorado Springs. It has been extremely challenging both physically and mentally. We have some wrestlers from Germany and Uzbekistan training with us, and they are 'tough as nails' like usual. It is always great to train with foreign competitors because the way the europeans train and compete is a lot different then us.
Check in with me soon as I will talk about our team, the first camp and our trip to Vegas last weekend.
