I am by training, vocation and avocation a psychologist, disability adjudication administrator, former college professor, American Mensa Research Review Committee member, weightlifting instructor, competitive powerlifter, Highland Games Heavy Events competitor, church lector, fast food fries and drinks man (a few decades back), who was raised Catholic, turned atheist for a brief spell of almost two-and-a-half decades, who returned to Christ and His Church and now writes for four Catholic publishers, and who does a lot of radio and live speaking engagements to spread the good news of the gospels and the Catholic Church, in particular, how it embodies the fullness of truth, synthesizing and perfecting along the way the graces of reason and faith, the Greco-Roman and Judeo-Christian heritages, and who, when unrestrained by a professional editor, loves to write exceedingly long sentences. Not always though. (Todd, Bert, George, and Cheryl forgive me.)
Perhaps Latinists, or those who have studied law or economics, will recognize the phrase caveat emptor -- "let the buyer beware" (lest he be bamboozled)! Well, those who would be "flexors" (exercises) should keep some caveats (forewarnings) in mind. The fitness-related information on this web site is intended for healthy individuals and is not intended to replace your doctor's advice. Anyone with or without known health problems should consult with a treating physician before embarking on significant changes in exercise or diet. We will strive to become fit for eternal life, but we don't want to start the eternal part prematurely!
