"The ironic thing about strength is this: It's the most important thing, but it's also the hardest thing to "sell." Strength doesn't require fancy tools or strategies. In fact, some of the strongest men who ever lived became that way by lifting with crappy equipment, using ill-advised training strategies, and eating shitty food." - Charles Staley

"There is an idea, cliche at this point, that strong women embrace this muscular body image and completely forsake the opinions of others who would question their physical development and their devotion to their sports typically dominated by men. To some extent this is true. Most of us don't care what doubters think and we are certainly proud of the bodies we build. But strength is much more than physical. With each kilo, each rep, each day in our journey we realize the benefits extend far into the content and character of the individual. Training gives me the strength to know that I am ready for anything that comes my way. The hard work that I put in the gym prepares for me what is outside. weightlifting has strengthened my body, mind and belief in myself." - Morghan King

Now kids are pressured into playing year-round, lest they fall behind the other hot college/pro prospects. But don't listen to me. Listen to the Doctor." - Matt Snyder
