    Florida lifters

    Anyone here live in the Ft. Lauderdale area? I go there often for vacation and don't have any good lifting facilities. If possible, I would be happy to take down someone's email if they would be willing to have a newb workout with them lol.

    I live in Ft. Lauderdale, you can come and train with me when you're in town.

    Right now I do my gym lifts at Gold's Gym in Sunrise (they allow suits, chalk, deadlifting, etc.) and Strongman training on Saturdays with Heath Allison and Henry Cervenka, both Heavyweight Professional Strongmen who live here as well.

    Just shoot me a PM next time that you'll be in town and we can figure something out.

    Thanks Tom! I should be heading to Florida this winter and I will definately contact you. I am hoping to learn something! I have never done anything strongman and am curious to see what the training is like, would it be possible for me to watch what you guys do?

    How far are your workout locations from the Hallandale beach ball water tower?

    Hallendale is basically North Miami so I am about 1/2 hour from there, not too far. The strongman training facility is about the same distance but much easier to get to since it is right off of I-95. Let me know when you are in town and we can coordinate from there.

    Tom the Results and the ETS are a must for any strength athlete. My over all endurance alone speaks for itself. Also ill be attempting a 75lb PR this weekend. Ive been taking the Results for about 12 weeks now. Good luck

    I have a bottle of the RESULTS on it's way so hopefully it will kick in before Strongman Nationals - this is the first year that they are doing a two day contest, which will definitely make things interesting.

    Good luck with your training! Sounds like you're making some solid gains...

    There's a good chance I'll be in Florida (Ocala area) from January to April. Since I procrastinate, I'll probably start looking for a PL gym sometime in december. I'll have to keep an eye on this thread.
