for ONLY $2500? I think I'll pass....although if there are 1000 PM members who all chip in $2.50 to send Robb Wolf....and then he can come back and translate it all back into easy to understand english with a bullet powerpoint presentation.

Wait,
Isn't this pretty much what James Fitzgerald's articles are touching on? I'd pitch in 2.50 to send Robb though.

I'm pretty sure Robb's done it in 2001 or 2002. That's where he and Ido met.

I don't think Robb has been yet, I recall him mentioning not that long ago that he wanted to go. I know he said Ido was a genius with the stuff.

So Robb which is it?

There's one in Scottsdale coming up...anyone want to sponsor me in exchange for future treatment?

It's only $1650 if paid in full by August 1st...

From speaking with James about it, there are many medical tests that are (or can be) worked into the program. I can only guess that it is most easily implemented by a physician who understands strength training and biochemistry, as they can order the tests directly.

Well for me since I am a student and former military its half cost. Which to me is no more than a "crossfit" certification.

Didn't think it would cause all the "costs to much" considering it was in the PM. But then again.

Not to mention, in my lifetime I have only met one physician who knew anything remotely interesting in Exercise Science or Biochemistry. Hell I have a girl that works for me at my bar, who just graduated pre-med/Exercise physiology, and she knows nothing about Lifting etc. None the less, carry on.

Cassidy,
I definitely don't think it is too expensive--I just don't think I could pull it off at this time (still in the early phases of growing a business, pregnant wife, economy, etc.).

I do know that much of what Charles learned and expanded upon was gleaned from his work with NDs. I believe I could work really well with it, which is why I've been discussing such a topic with James Fitzgerald.

Thanks for your input Garrett.


Is Vince Black still running a Chinese medicine practice down your way? He was a Grandmaster in Kajukenbo which was the first art I studied.

He is still down here, doing his thing. I have not met him yet.
