I’m into: #1 One Word… EVERYTHING! By that I mean I encourage the participation in everything and anything I would like or you would like to do. “Together” we can do it. The focus for me is always on Participation. Anything from an exercise to a mode of exercise to an event we could train for.
You never know what can happen, it might trigger something SPECIAL in you. The start of some thing and you never look back.
I’m into #2: I’m a bit of a jack-of-all-trades and master of none sort of guy. I enjoy participating in everything and being crossed trained across all modes of exercises and experiences. Variety for me is the secret to my life.

– Touch Rugby League (these days)
