"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

Remember that Arlington or should I say Washington DC is insulated from the good or bad economies. It's a government and corporate heaven here with a multitude of people with fat wallets who want to get in shape and workout.The biggest down side is it probably costs 3 or more times the rent or mortgage to live in this area compared to Canada.
I've been trying to get Dave F. to open a gym here but it's just to expensive for him at this time. You seem to better of financially so you might be able to make a go of it in this area.

You wont see me opening a business in the States anytime soon. Your economy is a mess. Don't matter if you elect Obama again or Romney. Neither one is going to save the day. A complete paradigm shift in government is needed. They both do things withing the same scope even if they do argue the small things endlessly. I don't see any way you guys can possibly pay back your debt. When you default on your loans, probably after the debt ceiling gets increased this winter and credit rating drops further, all bets are off. Are Prime Minister (same as your President) is an economist and had us out of the global recession before any other G8 country. The big problem is how many government jobs there are draining the system. The private sector always does it better.

Michael, you hit the nail on the head. It's funny how an "outsider" can see right through to the problems of the U.S. economy.

I work for Fairfax county Schools, a form of government and I'm proud to say that the finest and most educated people I have ever worked with work for our government and I am proud of the services we provide to the community. I worked in the private sector long before working for the government and there's no comparison in quality of services one gets from the private sector that one gets from the government. Example: Go to Home Depo and ask where something is. If the clod there has an answer it might be something like..if you don't see it we ain't got it..In our department every request is handled in the most professional way possible. We bend over backwards to ensure customer satisfaction!!I'll take the services of government any day over the private sector's services.

Sure Scott, as long as you don't mind paying $4,000 for a toilet seat and $500. for a screwdriver. And as for those fine most educated people that you work with, they won't be there long. 20 years then retirement with full benefits? What a joke..Sorry Scott, I'll take Home Depot every time.

Scott,

I am not saying there aren't good people working in government, but I think most will agree that the private sector will provide services and create products cheaper with higher quality, as well as provide more innovation because there is competition and incentive in the private sector which sorely lack in the public area - two keys of human nature being utilized. Note, I used to be a public school teacher (three years) and I've worked in the private sector for the last 12 years as a consultant as well as a direct employee for several corporations including some big ones you've heard. The government serves a crucial purpose: to protect individual rights and the country as a whole. You need a military, courts, police, fire, etc. as well as other agencies where some regulation is absolutely necessary. However, once it starts going outside of that scope, it puts us in debt and causes a host of other problems.

True. Your typical 2012 American thinks Obama is a rockstar while they sit back wondering how much beer is left in the fridge, where to order their next pizza for the football game or American Idol, and when the next government check in whatever form is going to arrive. Very sad state of affairs.

One of those strive Medical machines you were talking about awhile back? Looks like a very sturdy piece. Also David it was because of one of your threads on facebook I got my hands on my new swing squat. So thank you.

The information is tough to find, so if anyone out there has any brochures on Strive Medical Machines - feel free to contact me. I do have some files and pictures, but I can use more. The "Squat Machine" is referred to as the "Multi Lower Body" and can be used facing out and then can be used facing towards the machine - as it provides Two sets of handles. - For Michael - always appreciated!
