    Arrow My time here will be LIMITED.

    Here's some 411:

    I've recently accepted a trainer/counselor position at Gold's Gym in my area.
    My focus for now and the new year is to merge my on-line business with the "real world" and bring the two worlds together. I've begun to do that, and it's working VERY well, and I am excited. In a few months I'll be ROLLIN', and doing what I truly enjoy both on the Net and now in my local area. I never thought my life would be this great! Then there is L.A. and that possibility as mentioned in MuscleMag recently, but that's after the new year.

    Between me working @ Gold's, running my on-line website, business, forums, consultation, boards that I host forums on, working out myself, physical therapy for knee rehabilitation (going great by the way!), taking my son to/from school, spending time w/my wife and family, etc., my time here will be very limited. I must devote all of my available time to those who are of course paying me for it, but to also work on developing new programs, clothing, pt, family, etc. As well, with the recent influx of newbies and idiots who are constantly on a mission to tear me down for one reason or another by way of arguing or "challenging me", just because of what I've accomplished and my status here as Diet Guru Vet, I am growing quite tired of assisting for MANY hours a day on my own time, for nothing more than the occassional migraine. NOT worth it. I've come to realize that those arguing with me have issues and physique problems, not me, so why should I really give it any consideration at all? I simply shouldn't, as I am not the one w/the physique issues.

    So, if you don't see me around here for a while, nor nearly as much, these would be the reasons why. It's time to get down to business with my career and rehab, and focus on doing some shows in 2K5. No more pussy-footin' around.

    To all my friends here, thanks for being cool, and hold down the fort! I will be by of course, but not nearly as much.

    1 luv!

    Good luck in everything you do. Sounds like you are making an easy decision here. Money is good and so is family. Newbies are just that. Take care and once again good luck...

    Just got back from the walk-through, what is going to be set up where, etc. I get my own desk, can display all my V.X. materials, make pamphlets, whore my services as much as I want, they are putting a poster size picture of me on the rocks up there, etc.

    I am sooooooooooooooooooo f*cking stoked.................I want a drink, but I won't have one.

    Thanks people, it means a lot, it really does.

    Congrads!

    I don't think you wasted your time with newbies and idiots on this forum...Your going to go through the same thing at Golds, but in person...Because of this forum, you now have the skills to counter attack the real life idiots/newbies and not get bothered by it...

    BTW, because of you and Muriloninja, I have lost 15lbs, which I presume to be BF...

    Congratulations. It sounds like a great opportunity. When you say trainer/counselor, will they be having you do personal training and nutritional counceling or will individual clients come to you for both?

    Yup, both.

    They gave me the freedom to pitch/pimp whatever I wish to do, they told me to just "be me". I just found out that my laptop will be able to be utilized there, so both "worlds" can collide in the GYM!

    Have to look into Net access there though...........we'll see! The good part about it is that I am free to create-as-I-go, and I've never had that chance ANYWHERE I've worked.

    Thanks,

    C.............

    Word. You'd be an asset to any gym. Your time here has been well spent man, besides the clients I'm sure you got from this board you helped tons of people and earned worldwide repect. It's obvious even in the very limited time I've been here. I'll just write down all my questions for when you come back...

    That doesn't make any sense. Here we have a diet "guru" who is making fun of other people. I wonder what the owners of Gold's Gym are going to think of that.

    They love it, because they actually know the people being made fun of are entirely deserving, have the IQ of a rock, and are self-made idiots.

    Thanks for your concern. Please submit all further questions in writing with the appropriate letterhead.

    Thank you,

    Yes! Sitting around all my trophies, pictures, poster, etc. makes you feel like a star when everyone is stopping to view your stuff, chat, etc.

    Thank you Cycleon.
