I met Tanner in January of this year, he contacted me about helping him prepare for the United States Marine Corps. In seven months Tanner has substantially improved his physical strength and conditioning. Consistently, he puts up top scores in his physical qualification tests. These include scores of up to 30 pullups and 9 minutes 1.5 mile runs-extremely competitive numbers.
All aspects of Tanner’s movement and body composition have changed in this seven months. He has gained 15 pounds, and increased his main lifts by large margins. We focused on keeping his strong, dynamic, and healthy. To be truly balanced in strength and conditioning is no easy accomplishment. Tanner is now pound for pound one of the strongest and conditioned individuals I know.
Tanner is a resilient young man, something that seems lacking these days. Our first five sessions were a bit of a gut check to examine his toughness, and he passed with ease. I have absolute confidence in his grit, and look forward to hearing about his time in basic training in
these coming months.
Tanner graduates in October, leaving this Sunday to begin his new journey in service to our country. Tanner, from all of us at AYB, congratulations on your physical gains, as well as your gains in character. Above that, thank you for your commitment to serving our country, I know you’ll make us proud!
