Greg Robinson and Lee Brandon
Santa Monica, California:   Last week we had the honor of having 3 LEGENDS take over the gym.

"It is not often that the universe allows us to feel the 'PERFECT STORM' in its EYE!  Having Coach Robinson (who coached at University of Texas,  University of Syracuse, UCLA, NY Jets, Denver Broncos...), Ricky Berens (US Olympic Gold Medalist who swam with Phelps helping him win his final gold), and the great Marcus Rogan from Austria was such an honor."

Brandon continues, "In life, there are these perfect moments.  When they strike, you pray your present to appreciate them!  I was standing in the middle of this perfect powerful swirling moment of power.  I feel so blesssed to be training Olympians and professionals after 30 years in the fitness industry.  How amazing is it that Coach Robinson and I worked together with the NY JETS 21 over years ago.  To have him standing there seeing the Olympic Training we were doing was inspiring and breathtaking!  It was truly a PERFECT STORM of power and intensity, and I was in its eye!"

Coach Robinson  looked on and smiled, "If one could have taken the pulse at the gym, the vibration was off the chart!  Everyone stopped to watch Lee kick those boys into shape!  Truly amazing!  London 2012 is going to be amazing."
