Thanks everyone for your comments and interest! It was exciting to log in and see 1500 views. I just
wanted to provide an update. Everything is moving forward, everyone is on board, just trying to finalize
the location and financing. I have summarized some key points that succinctly capture what I am trying
to offer to my patients and the community. I am definitely an idealist, but wouldn’t call myself naïve. I
am confident it will work because I have been doing it, just not together. I spend all day seeing patients,
and then head to the gym to train. I want to integrate the two, and hope that by so doing I will become
both a better physician and trainer. I certainly welcome any comments, criticisms, or feedback. Thanks
