Athletes come from all walks of life and work out for all sorts of personal or professional reasons. However, the one thing that binds almost all athletes together is a spirit of determination. We believe in the adage "When the going gets tough, the tough get going". You keep working through the burn, you get in the zone, push your limits, and get stronger and faster every day. For most athletes, it's not the exercise that's hard, it's stopping before you're ready.
