What is your proudest accomplishment so far? Doing the Single Leg Deadlift with kettle bells that are equal to my body weight.

How many days per week do you strength train at CFP? What do you do for exercise outside of CFP, # times per week? Twice a week at CFP. During the winter I snow ski almost every weekend and during the spring/summer/fall I water ski a couple days a week, and try to cycle twice a week.
Which habits (pick 1 or 2) do you most attribute your continued success to? Committing to a long-term schedule and sticking to it, and looking forward to trying any new exercises Bret & Megan can come up with to throw at me!
Favorite ability you’ve gained from your training? Due to increased strength and proper training guidance, I was able to snow ski all season, and cycle so far this year, without the knee pain I had experienced over the previous season.
More from Scott: With Bret and Megan's guidance I've been able to safely get stronger and feel more energetic. I'm looking forward to all the new challenges they come up with for me!
