hotel exercise Congrats to everyone…let’s hear from our winners!

“I ordered your book a while back along with the “Truth about Abs”. I went into the training half hearted because I have been used to traditional weightlifting exercises and thought I would not benefit from the exercises presented. I should have had more faith because following my own plan has not been kind to my waist line. I am 6? 2? with a bodyweight of 370lbs. Im sure it is obvious to everyone I became discouraged along the way and just gave up. I am 40 years old and would love to experience the empowerment I use to have in my younger, fitter days. I want a change, I truly do. Gearing your up your mental state to take on another diet and exercise program can be a gruelling adventure especially when the results keep showing diminshing returns. I feel if i had the dvd series, benefitting from a visual demonstration of how the exercises should be performed, I could give it 150% effort. I didnt feel that I could correctly perform the exercises in my previous try. I have the desire, I just need the tools. Incidentally, my wife has also expressed an interest so this could be a shared event. I know that any success in life starts with being in control of yourself. If you are not happy with self, you are not really motivated to reach for much else. Im ready for change, Im ready for freedom.”
Michael Pace

“Well, the Feb 2009 was my turning point into shifting into a healthier lifestyle. I was a 204lbs female when I first started working out. Just felt bloated, depressed, you name it…I was miserable 24/7 and had to do something STAT! I was juggling a my job, full time school, taking care of my mother, and 3 nieces that my sister left. It was quite a struggle…but I did it! In July 2009, I dropped 35lbs of fat by working out and eating healthier. Felt great! My energy was sky high and I went down 3 – 4 pant sizes! One of my friends was so inspired, she jumped on the bandwagon and
lost 20lbs with me!

Now it is October and I’ve only dropped 10lbs. It’s getting a bit tough…I hit my first plateau. I’m not dropping as much weight as I was in the beginning of the year. But I believe that your TT Complete Package I will help me lose the last 50lbs. Not only that I want to lose this weight, I also want to set an example to my nieces. I want them to know that anything is possible and nothing in life can hold you back from the obstacles in life. I also want to prove to myself that I CAN DO THIS, and NOT TO GIVE UP HOPE. And as corny as this may sound…I truly love myself, I want to do this for me.”

“Oh my gosh. I feel like I could write a book based on just this one question. First and foremost having the Turbulence Training Complete Package would give me no excuse, period. If anyone has this package sitting right in front of them then the only person standing in the way would be the guy in the mirror. If I’m in a hotel, a friends house, on a road trip, at a football game, or on vacation in Brussels, then I have no excuse. Especially when it comes to cardio as it is very difficult to get a cardio routine done in various locations. This program would also help due the fact everything
is right there. I have no need to read a bunch of different magazine searching around for the perfect workout because it is all right there in one concise package. For years I have looked for the so called perfect workout and I believe I have found it! Reaching my goals with this package would be much easier as the added stress of figuring out which workout program I’m going to follow next is gone. Most workout programs last for 12 weeks or so. Then what? The Turbulence Training program has longevity. There are enough routines to last me for many years. I also love the outdoors and Turbulence Training has encouraged that. I can do the workouts outside which is awesome. There are also fun activities included on some days where I can do whatever I like, so the program is also not constrictive which adds to even more reduced stress. Time is another issue when talking about stress. There are short 10 minute workout routines and workouts that may take up to an hour to complete. Some days if I’m depressed or not feeling well a long
workout might seem too intimidating and I can do a shorter one if I want. It also just depends on the time that I have available. As you can tell stress has been a big part of my life and sometimes I just don’t have the time to get my workouts in. At least now I can get in a workout without looking at it and not even attempting to do it because it was too long. The workouts are so adaptable that if I want to burn fat I can by doing many multiple circuits. If I want to really bulk up, I can add weights to the exercises and go that route. The videos in this package would also help by allowing me to see the correct form used in each exercise. I definitely want to make sure that my form is correct that way I do not hurt myself and become unable to reach my goals. Having the correct form would also make sure that I am getting the most out of each and every workout. I’ve also been in a depressed state for a while now and using these workouts are definitely helping me to have more confidence to go out and not be as self conscious about they way I look or how people see and perceive me. I also notice that my energy levels are starting to go up, and for that alone I am extremely grateful. Thank you!”

“So the big question is “How would having the Turbulence Training Complete Package help you finally achieve your fitness and fat loss goals?” This might be a little lengthy, but I truly hope it to be worth your time to read!

From the time I was a small child, I struggled immensely with being overweight. I was made fun of a lot for being so heavy, and it didn’t help that I was shy. I didn’t have a lot of friends, and making new ones seemed like an unreachable goal because I was so self-conscious about how I looked that I just assumed nobody would like me. I figured that if I was already being made fun of behind my back and to my face by these other kids, that every kid was going to treat me the same way.

Elementary school, junior high, and some of high school was all the same; getting teased, feeling overly self-conscious, and becoming more shy. I also became mean. I told myself that if other people were mean to me, I wouldn’t be so nice. When high school came, I had an awesome gym teacher that motivated me to eat better and take better care of myself. I lost 20lbs in the first semester. To get an idea of what I was “carrying around” up until that point, I was 180lbs at the age of 13, going into freshman year at my heaviest with a 5????? frame at the time. Those 20lbs were a HUGE deal, and I kept trying to lose. I came down to 146 for the remainder of my high school years, but once college hit my weight climbed back up.

After high school my weight teeter-totted and I couldn’t find anything that I could stick to for a long period of time and feel motivated or have fun doing.

Then, something wonderful happened. I met my now fiancee, who took me as I was (at the time at my heaviest since having lost all of the weight in high school). He was always active in football and other sports, and was in the army for 4 years. I thought, “How could someone who spent most of his life physically fit want to be with someone like me who has struggled with weight gain all of her life?” He invited me to run an 8k with him and his coworkers, and I hesitantly agreed to do so because I wanted to do it with him (not because I wanted to run… heck no!!) Before that, I couldn’t run
more than 3 minutes nonstop without feeling like someone was stealing all of the air from my lungs. I have a blood disorder (Beta Thallasemia Minor) and it makes me get dizzy easily, so I’ve had to learn to get in control of that… which I did as I trained for the 8k (I will share my secret to how I did it to anyone interested, too) :o). Oh, and by the way, I survived in case you were wondering, haha!

The last two years had been WORLDS better than EVER… I had been keeping at a regimen pretty well, and was able to get in the best shape I had ever been in and keep it…

… until recently. Now, I can thankfully say that I’m not back to where I was when I started dating my now fiancee… but, I feel myself slipping… I’ve gained some weight and I’m having a hard time getting motivated to go above and beyond to get the body I’ve always wanted. I haven’t reached my “dream body” yet… and I SO MUCH want to reach it! I’m getting married this December 5th, and I would absolutely LOVE to be able to have something that will make me in the best shape of my life for this new chapter called marriage :o)

I don’t have a lot…. I am a musician… so the opportunity to WIN the Turbulence Training Complete Package would be INCREDIBLE! I mean, if I won I would probably be jumping off of the walls screaming with excitement!!! This would give me SO many wonderful tools at my fingertips to be able to use in my OWN HOME! I can’t afford a gym membership, and I have invested in some things for my own home gym (plus the wonderful PowerBlocks that my fiancee got for me last Christmas… WOOHOO!) so I’m PUMPED to be able to have a package such as the Turbulence Training Complete Package to guide me along and help keep me motivated to stay in the best shape of my life, for the
rest of my life.

I don’t want a quick fix… not a “diet fad” or “exercise gimmick”… I don’t want a short term solution…

… I want a lifestyle change! Thank you SO much for making this even an opportunity!”

“When I was in my 20’s, I was 30 lbs overweight, due to late-night dinners after work combined with studying for college. Once someone had mentioned that I had gained alot of weight, I began a tortureous and unhealthy program which consisted of running 5miles a day, 5 times a week, along with just lettuce salads for lunch and dinner. I was not
aware of how unhealthy this diet was until I began to get sick very frequently.

With alot of research and attending workout classes at the YMCA, I had changed that unhealthy program of mines to a healthier program which consisted of long cardio workouts and an improved diet of healthy forms of protein, fats and carborhydrates.

Within a couple of years, I realized I was no longer transforming my body… everything came to a halt. I couldn’t figure out why this was happening. I was working out 5-6 days a week, 3 hours a workout which consisted of aerobic classes and very little weight-bearing exercises.

While researching new ideas to change my workout program, I came across your youtube videos (cbathletics). It was interesting to view your videos and refreshing to hear the truth about long cardio workouts , endless crunches, etc.

I viewed many of your videos regarding circuit and interval training, and decided to give it a shot. Amazingly, within a couple of months, my body showed positive results due to the inclusion of circuit and interval training.

Whats even more amazing, my neighbor who had entered a beauty pageant, could not lose her excess pounds with her then-current workout routine ~ an hour on the elliptic with a bunch of crunches at the end. She shared with me, her story of frustration, not being able to lose the pounds or inches. I had offered to show her some of the turbulence training moves, which i picked up from youtube ( prisoner squats, wide-arm squats, mountain climbers, windshield wipers, etc.) and after 4 months of following Craig Ballantynes moves, she lost 20lbs, 6 inches and happy to say, SHE WON THE PAGEANT!

Since then, I have been offering my services to help those who are struggling with health issues, such as cholesterol problems, diabetic problems, weight issues…all free of charge. And especially those who were familiar with my old workout routine and were amazed at my transformation due to switching to circuit and interval training. Such a rewarding experience to help those who need to improve their health issues and well-being status, but have no idea of where to start or are too embarrassed to inquire.

Doing the research and implementation of the info I picked up from cbathletics on youtube has allowed me to help others improve their well- being and has also caused them to ignite a new chapter in their lives by developing a new workout program, not involving long cardio workouts and countless crunch moves.

If I were to win a Turbulence Training Program, it would allow me to further those who need assistance and guidance to improve their well-being. I feel that this gift I am sharing with others has definitely allowed me to serve God in such an awesome way. God has guided me to discover the world of Turbulence Training, and with what I have gained thru the youtube videos, I am able to share that with others who are not aware of what circuit and interval training is all about. Unfortunately, I am unable to afford the offers which I receive thru your emails, which is why I rely on your newest videos offered on youtube. I do go thru your archives on the emails which I receive which has also been very
very helpful.

Thru personal experience, I have discovered a whole new world of workout routines, thanks to TT and cbathletics. Imagine the message I could share with those who are still going thru long cardio workouts and also, those who I am still committed to helping them with their health. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity! Definitely looking forward to hearing the results!

And here are the entries for the 1-year Platinum TT Membership…

“I am a 39 year old Police Officer and father of 6 wonderful children. I have been active my whole life, but I can’t seem to find anything that keeps me motivated. I am 5 feet two inches tall and weigh 183 pounds. Let’s be clear about the weight…it isn’t from muscle; well table muscle maybe. I have followed you since I heard about your program nearly 2 years ago. Being that I have 6 children, I don’t have much money to purchase programs. I have belonged to gyms in the past and even won a weight loss challenge. I lost nearly 50 pounds in 3 months, but put it all back on. I believe your program would finally offer me the opportunity to learn how to make a total lifestyle change. Why is your program different? Maybe it isn’t, but it sounds like your take on cardio is different than what everyone else is teaching. I am not afraid of cardio, but if your program is as different as it sounds I think it will offer me that thing that I have been looking for a long time…the opportunity to effect change. Thanks for listening.”
Joe Kirshner

“Turbulence Training was a God send for me. Being a single income ministry family, resources can be tight at times. On top of that, I’ve never been athletic. I don’t even run to the dinner table! With TT, I was able to start a lifechange of fitness and exercise in a way that I could afford, manage time for, do at home and be consistent with. After working for over a year (with some seasonal difficulties), I’m down 3o solid pounds and much much stronger than I ever was. I can do 20 straight pushups every time I try for the first time in my life and I’m still a round, but much healthier 225lbs. I still like to eat, too much. I know, Craig, I know. I’m working on it. Have the TT Complete package would help me have what I can’t afford, a membership, better connection to who has kind of become my fitness mentor via TT, Craig Ballantyne, and a chance to seek out some better support and motivation. I’m in the current Transformation Contest, but my goal is not to win that. My goal is to make incremental changes that will STICK FOR LIFE. I’m already over a year into a training program. I’ve NEVER done that before. I’ve started some running. Something I’ve NEVER done before. I’m feeling better in my clothes and throwing away some pants!!! Something I’ve NEVER done before. The TT Complete Package would be a big tool in my belt to help me continue to work harder toward my goal, be sexier for my wife, make my kids proud of their dad, and be fit for life.”
David Higgs

“The Turbulence Training Complete package WILL help me achieve my weight and fat loss goals because I believe in its principles and the concept. I ordered the e-books about a year ago and have truly enjoyed the workouts. But unfortunately balancing being an active duty nurse in the USAF, finishing grad school and time with my little girl– my waistline and thighs have suffered. Now 15 lbs and 10% more body fat, doing the things I love are not as fun anymore because I no longer look nor feel like ME. I have struggled with weight all my life and conquered the battle but as life
changed, the things that worked before do not fit my lifestyle anymore. I feel that having the complete package on DVD would would ideal because it will take the guess work out of figuring out the workouts and fits my busy lifestyle. I am a very visual person and with my hectic lifestyle it would be ideal. I need this because time has come for me to feel better about ME and I want to be an inspiration to others. These workouts will help me take my fitness to another level and the benefits are endless. Mostly I want to show my 7 year old that mommy is focused and can do whatever she puts her mind to to be healthy and an example to her as she gets older.”
Erika T. Smith

“I’ve been listening to you for awhile now. I look forward to your helpful hints and truth telling everyday. I love your videos. I am particularly in awe of your drive to bring awareness to others regarding cardio. I do believe the world is catching on thanks to you. I already bought some of your top notch TT Training but was not able to afford the DVD’s. I also bought 3 mos. membership and also couldn’t afford more than that. I am missing that! As a 59 year old Grandma raising my 15 year old awsome Grandson, I find myself with more energy now than ever. He keeps me young. I have attempted to stay on track with your body weight lifting program but “fall off the bar bell” every so often. My determination is there. I just get distracted with trying to make sure my form and execution are where it should be. I live in the mountains in California and find it difficult to travel to the nearest gym, as I have to make sure my Grandson is on task with chores and homework.

Having these DVD’s would benefit not only me but my Grandson. It is important that I stay fit and heathy for me first and foremost, but for him as well. He needs me to see him through to adulthood. He needs to see his Grandma set a healthy example for him. Your TT program is the only prgram out there that makes a difference with my body. Your information about cardio is true because I have tried it and I have already made significant progress with my fading tummy gut. Nothing has ever worked before! I am a very visual person. I am someone who learns better by seeing. I am not a lazy person despite my age. I ride horses, clean my stalls everyday and operate a mobile dog grooming service to the homebound disabled and elderly community up here in the mountains where it can get very isolated for some. Their pets are everthing to them and I absolutely love, love love my job.

In 1982 I was in a bad car accident where my 12th vertibrae received a compression fracture. I now have osteopena in my spine. Weightbearing excercise has made all the difference in the world with my DEXA reports (bone density test). Despite the push to take medication for this, the truth is, weight bearing excercise is the BEST and ONLY way to successfully build bone density. I eat very healthy already, do not drink alcohol and stay pretty active. I only weigh 114 lbs. which is why it is very iportmant that I buid muscle. I simply need that push through visual guidance to get me to that next level. I hope you can help me with that. I am submitting my comment in hopes you might consider me as I would be grateful and promise to make you proud!”
Patricia Andrews

“I have been dreaming and praying for a way to get your complete training package! At 41 years young, I realize that I would like to do something I’ve never been able to accomplish… sculpt my body and live in a strong powerful Me! My dad was a great influence on me and had us in all kinds of sports and activities to help us stay fit. I figure skated 5 days a week for 18 years but I have always been overweight..I was in ok shape but have always had alot of stomach fat. When I left home to attend University, I ate the same but stopped exercising and gained over 70lbs!.( I weighed 293lbs at one point ) I lost a hundred pounds by following a strict low calorie diet and a rigid work-out program with tonnes of cardio for over a year . I lost the weight but I have NEVER been able to lose the flabby tummy and arm
wings. I have been on a roller-coaster since then ( but more steadily up) and I am so tired ! I saw your program and began following your blog ….I thought could this be the program to FINALLY help me shape the body of my dreams? I also decided to go veggie this year and asked for and received Kardena’s veggie meal plan for my birthday this summer! I feel great now when I eat but I still have so much belly fat. I am a single mom with a beautiful 7 yr old daughter and I realized I wanted to teach her from the beginning to have excellent nutrition AND a successful exercise program. I truly believe if I have your program in the safety and security of my own home, I can accomplish my life long finally lose my tummy padding and extra 40-50 lbs….to once and for all give myself the gift of a healthy TONED body and let the true inner me out for the rest of my journey of life! I would love to have before and after pictures and be one of those people who gave themselves the opportunity to live their dreams come true! (I cant
wait to actually achieve a chin-up!) I would love to be an example to my daughter and be an inspiration for great health and well-being…..I would love to see MYSELF in real life as I do in my dreams…fit TONED happy! I would love this chance to receive your program! peace and love to you and yours!”

“Craig, I used to be a college wrestler with 6% body fat; 15 years and ~40 pounds later, my metabolism has slowed to a snails crawl. For the last eight years I have been running; I have done five marathons and two triathlons (1 sprint and 1 Olympic distance) but though I am heart healthy, all that cardio hasn’t changed my body composition much.

About four months ago I watched a Nova special on marathoning where they took a bunch of couch potatoes and spent a year getting them ready to run the Boston marathon. Tuft University tracked the groups physiological progress. Stunningly, they found that the health benefits of all that cardio peaked once the people were fit enough to run 10 miles. These were pretty sedentary people so it probably wasn’t even the ten miles that got them that gain per say, probably any intense physical activity would have done the trick. With all the miles they slogged, there was little appreciable change in their body composition or weight.

It was like a light went on for me–I have been wasting all kinds of time trying get in shape by logging long runs. So I went back to what I used to do in college, I am back in the weight room and work in speed work a couple of times a week; I still do a couple middle distance runs to keep my base up (I like to compete). I have lost ten pounds and am starting to get tone again, but can tell I need to drop at least ten or fifteen more–I have hit a plateau that I need to get off of. I googled around and found your web site.

I did the trial workout on Saturday and felt really good; not smoked but certainly pushed hard for what is usually about half the time I am normally working out. Everything I am reading makes a lot of sense to me and I would like to try it out. I am an Air Force Officer and need to stay in shape; I’d love to win the complete TT package and see if it can push me over the hump.”
Gabriel Lajeunesse

“How will it help me? If your free 4-week workout program is any indication of success, than it will help me out tremendously. I am 47 and a diabetic, and so exercise is extremely important in my condition. Your program would help me build muscle and endurance at the same time. I am not interested in getting the “Hulk” look, but to get that toned and cut look while also increasing my metabolism. Your program will effect me in so many different ways.

1. Control my high blood sugars
2. Make me feel much better physically, mentally and emotionally
3. Give me “Hey, you must work out” comments from others
4. Provide me with more stamina throughout the day
5. Create enjoyable and fun workouts
6. Workouts that will change often, thus, keeping me interested
7. Have more energy to give to my family
8. To tell others about the program due to the success of the program for me
9. It will take my stress level down (I’m a pastor and deal with stressful situations)
10. It will be helpful in my “relationship” with my wife.
11. That I don’t need to do the same routine.

That pretty much sums it up. Thanks Craig for all you do. Keep it up.”
Mark G

“Craig, When I got married I was 185 lbs. I have shot up to 225 at one point, when I wasn’t working out at all. Currently I am sitting aorund 200. I should be around 175 to be really lean and fit. Being in law enforcement, it is not easy to find time to stick with the standard gym workout. Statistics show officers don’t always live the longest. The stress of working as a Crimes Against Children Sergeant takes a toll and exercise is the best release for this. The TT Total Package looks like the answer I need to offer the flexibility and variety to get me into the shape I should be so I can
truly “Protect and Serve”. The “Hotel Workout” is the answer for the times I am forced to travel to other states looking for suspects. Along with that, I work with a lot of detectives who could definately use some help in this area. I think once I show them that it is possible, then they would love to get on this system, because even though I am not in the best shape now, I am still asked constantly about my workouts. Finally, I this package will help keep me around longer for my wife and kids. Getting rid of that deadly belly fat which is a result of missing the gym and eleveated stress levels will help keep me around longer to see them grow up.

Dedication is not an issue. I can committ to the program, the problem was always finding the time to get in the car to drive to the gym. Getting my diet somewhat in line is the only thing that has really kept me from getting back up to 225 and beyond. The Total Package will offer me the variety, flexibility and limited need for equipment to finally get back into top shape. Just in time for my reunion next year.   Thanks for the consideration.”

“Let’s face it. I am embarrassed to excercise in public. I try to excercise at home, but I never know exactly what to do to make it worth it. Your Turbulence Training would change my life for the better. About 10 years ago my husband divorced me. I lost a lot of weight in one month and of course I gained it all back plus. What’s worse is I turned 30
eight years ago and I have gained on average 10 lbs per year since then. I cannot find a program that fits within my schedule as a single mom that works for me. Everytime I lose a little I gain back more. I also cannot afford expensive training, so winning this package would truly be a blessing to me and my children. Thank you for this opportunity.”

“I just went through an ugly divorce I’m struggling with raising two kids on my own and dont have time to go to the gym. I would love to win this package to help get my self esteem back and what is always the ultimate revenge besides looking and feeling better than ever. I also hate cardio and besides lost all my equipment in the me!”

“Three years ago I was involved in an accident that turned my life upside down. I suffered a brain injury that caused memory loss, cognitive impairments, personality changes and migraines. I have worked very hard on my recovery and as a result was released from medical disability in July. Unfortunately, my team of doctors addressed only the actual brain issues, not the other health issues brought on by the disability.

During that time my weight nearly doubled. As a consequence of the weight gain I developed high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes. I also went from a size 4 petite to a size 20 women’s and my self esteem tanked. My doctor’s solution was to prescribe a bunch of medications and tell me to watch what I eat and get some exercise. (There were no restrictions on the type or amount of exercise.)

At the suggestion of my doctor, and in an effort to better my health, I joined a program which consisted of supervised cardio and diet. After three months of walking 2 – 3 miles a day and following the American Diabetes Association Diet, I have lost a total of six pounds and one dress size. Although my blood sugar and blood pressure have come down slightly, I know I can do better.

I have researched exercise and weight loss programs on the internet and Turbulence Training is the one that makes the most sense. As someone with a persistent mild cognitive impairment, I need multiple sensory inputs to effectively learn something new. Although I’ve been attempting to learn the Turbulence Training exercises from the internet, I am having difficulty. The Turbulence Training Complete Package would provide the additional audio and visual materials and other support I need to be successful in my journey back to optimum health. You see, my research also indicates that not only will weight/fat loss improve high blood pressure and high cholesterol; it can even reverse type 2 diabetes. Also, since being released from disability I have yet to find employment, and medical bills have exhausted my savings, so I cannot afford to purchase the program for myself. (My financial situation is so bad I’ve had to move
back in with my parents – UGH!).

In short, I am highly motivated, but under-funded. My pledge to you is that I will pay it forward – once my finances are back in order, I will purchase a Complete System and pass it on to some other deserving individual who needs what you offer but cannot afford to purchase it for him/her self. Please help me prove to my doctors that I can improve my health, to potential employers that I am not a lazy glutton, and to you and the world that if I can do it anyone can! Thank-you.”

“I like the approach and encouragement I get from reading your website and believe that this is the answer to get me back to my ideal body. I am 44 and work as a CNA and care for people all day long for less than 20,000 a year. This program would not only help me but help every patient I work with every day because I will feel better and look better and that will translate into better care just because I am in better shape. I’ve been trying on my own but not getting anywhere. It will help me to teach my family how to be in better health and take care of themselves also. I’m saving up to buy this program but if I will I will be thrilled. I’m already sharing info with my fellow coworkers and family and sending them to your website.”

“I know someone out there has an answer. I’m 42, and can no longer lose weight. Eating less, eating more, no carbs, no fat, an hour of cardio six days a week, supplements, raw foods, high protein, low protein… I do not know what else to do. I’ve always been a happy, fun and genuinely caring person, but now I can’t even think straight. What is wrong? Could your program be what is missing? I’ve never found a trainer who actually cared, or could help, yet I have such respect for those that really have studied what works for people like me. I won’t date, try to meet friends…my life is
just on hold. I’m 90 pounds overweight and feel like I’m trapped in someone else’s body. If it’s legal, and won’t hurt anyone, I’ll do it! I just do not know what to do! All I’ve ever heard is “eat less, and do more cardio.” How much less can I eat, and how much more cardio can I do. I believe this all can change, I just can’t find out how. If you know turning this all upside down is the answer, I promise you couldn’t have a more devoted trainee. Good luck everyone – including me!”

Thanks again to everyone, you are amazing and I know you can and will succeed.

Stay strong,

Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS
