  1. I Love your goals, Michael. Just as a suggestion work on researching the market too. Not everybody on the market for a gym has it together. I have some friends whom I would have loved to refer to CFA, but didn't because it felt like all goup sessions and the nutrition was for athletes. Thatis great, but limited . some of us might need more hand holding then a" Let me wash my hands" Justin kind of approach. I understand that we have to do the work, but a little humility when encouraging goes a long way, so does connection.

  2. Thank you for your input Candocci. CFA is constantly looking for ways to improve. One thing we pride ourselves on is our ability to train people from all walks of life and levels of fitness. We are constantly focused on building relationships with our clients. If you had any other experience at CFA I apologize on behalf of all of us at CFA. Feel free to email me anytime at If you will allow me to, I would like to give you a few free sessions with me to give you a proper CFA experience.
