Why did you decide to join ASF? 
Because my wife had huge success at ASF with Mark

What were your goals when you started? 
To overcome a knee injury (torn ACL) and become more flexible and stronger

Getting better every day.
What changes have you noticed in your body, mind, spirit since starting at ASF? 
My body is getting stronger and my mind is more focused.
What challenges have you had to overcome, if any, since starting out at ASF?  
Mobility is an issue due to my injury and now working with the damages from compensating this whole year have gotten in the way, but Lindsay is awesome in helping with ways to work around and overcome this barrier.
Any surprises since starting at ASF? 
Why do you like working out with Mark? 
I work out with Lindsay and she is wonderful!  She always seems happy to be there and that helps feed my mood especially when I have those moments that I don’t really want to be there.
What is it about Mark/ASF that keeps you coming back? 
She is always changing up the workout and doing different things each session so you never get bored!
What are your goals & plans for the future at ASF? 
Continue on the same strength plan and lose weight as well.

Mexican Food
Any advice you’d share with a newcomer to ASF?
Don’t get down on yourself when you feel weak. We all have to start somewhere.
Anything else you’d like to add about your experience at ASF or with Mark? 
Lindsay doesn’t judge. She’s all about the client and what is best for them. I love that about her.
