Both accomplishments show how hard work and dedication can help you reach your ultimate goals.”

What do you like best about Arlington Sports Conditioning? What do you see as the biggest benefits of ASC? 

“ASC has introduced me to so many new friends and great people. It’s honestly like a second family I get to spend time with a few days a week where everyone has the same mindset of Work Hard Play Hard.’ ASC keeps me honest with my workout regimen and helps keep my workout plans on a consistent schedule.”

What advice would you offer to new or prospective members of Arlington Sports Conditioning? 

“(1) Don’t knock it til you try it. (2) It might be painful at the start, but that pain is just weakness leaving the body. (3) The harder you work and the more often you participate, the easier and more enjoyable it will become.”
