Now THIS is a thank you gift!

Strength athlete, coach and private trainer Geoff Neupert came by my garage gym(Stones) this Christmas as he and his wife were out in Nor Cal to visit her parents and he needed a place to train. I was only too happy to oblige, especially when I learned Geoff was an Olympic lifter;old school and hard core to boot! My bumber plates and York OL bar needed a workout.

Geoff trained with me for a week and it was great fun watching him power snatch 110kg from the hang as well as throw KBs around like toys. We talked shop and lifting and training theory and had a great time.

Geoff told me a few weeks later to keep a lookout as he had sent me something as a thank you for letting him train here. I was thinking a dvd or a book.

Well yesterday my beleagued UPS man delivered a big chunky box that could only mean one thing; a Kettlebell! Geoff had sent me a 28kg KB as a thank you gift!!!!! I had told him I needed one to complete my home gym collection and he got one for me!Man oh man, I was blown away.One of the nicest things anyone has done for me. Thanks Geoff, you are welcome at Stones Gym anyday.

It has been difficult for me to find real information about nutrition. I have search the search engines and am now looking through the blogs. However, I did enjoy your post.

--All the best,

Ever since I was a little boy, I had a thing for playing sports. It is funny, as you get older, your passion does not change, just the injuries.

Thanks for the info.
