It is about you

Not about me. Steer clear of coaches that make it about themselves. There are way too many people who have been under loved, and then go into coaching trying to profess what they have found to work for themselves. That is a very wrong way to treat other people's problems. Bodybuilding is one of my personal hobbies, but I'm very clear about the fact that I compete for me.
