Crikey! Check out these photos of the stunning Tara and her equally good looking hubby Mr R! This is just a small sneak peek of the photos Dallas Olsen took in addition to our squatting workout ones for the UltraFit article which unfortunately may have to keep under wraps until closer to article publishing date. I really wanted some pics of Tara in some "lifestyle gear" to celebrate her achievements and the journey she's undertaken on her way to Figure Athlete.
I have to say that I feel very privileged that so many people place their trust in me as their Coach and watching the transformation process unfold is one of the best experiences ever! However I must also say that because I am dealing with people on a very intimate level that I shoulder a huge responsibility in ensuring that my clients get the most accurate and scientifically based information possible. I believe that the best coaches in the world are very open about their coaching methods - I have to single out Alwyn Cosgrove here. I don't know the man personally, don't use/do any of his programs but read his blog every now and again - I am impressed that he backs up his methods and reasoning with scientific journal publications and case studies. From these sorts of blog posts and information, it's a real opportunity for growth and development. I also place the blogs of Eric Cressey and Mike Robertson in this category - if you're looking to learn more about strength training, these blogs are an excellent place to look.
I also wanted to thank everyone for their birthday wishes. This is going to sound rather sad, but I decided to crack open a tub of Metabolic Drive that I ordered with our last batch of Surge. If Surge tastes good, then Metabolic Drive tastes so good that I could quite happily sit on a desert island with a tub of the Chocolate variety, some peanut butter and a spoon.
