Travis Smith: my resume, bio and photos back to the main blog page

Curt Heywood has pretty much changed my life.

As you might know, I’ve been working out with Curt, a professional personal trainer, for the past two years.

We exercise twice a week after work for an hour, and just by doing this, combined with a little other outside sporting that I do, I have lost weight, gained flexibility, stamina and even dexterity.

I feel better, I think sharper, I’m healthier, and the ladies don’t mind, either.

Curt leads a small group of us in short exercises using just a mat and some other stuff we have lying around—he’s the MacGyver of exercise.  His style of workout is called “functional athletics” and it’s always varied, always interesting, and actually fun. It’s not as intense as those P90X things, nor as routine as the regular exercise classes I’ve tried.

Lately, we have had a few dropouts who have moved away or switched to other exercises, so I’d like YOU to join the group now.

The first drop-in is always completely free, and our little group of guys and girls is of varying ranges; Curt’s really good at adjusting the routines for each person so that everyone is working at maximum capacity without feeling overwhelmed.

It’s a really good deal—you pay for a set of 6 or so classes at a time, and come as often as you can.

If you want to join, let me know and I’ll tell you when the next one is!

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

“I play with variables constantly.”

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”
