Welcome! You are now a part of the Black Box Fort Worth Family. I use the word Family on purpose because we will treat each and every one of you like you are my family. Welcome and thank you for placing your trust in us. We look forward to our journey together. Now on to the important stuff…
What we do here is Hard. The weights feel heavy and the air gets thin sometimes but these are the things we have to push through to accomplish the goals we set for ourselves. Don’t have any specific goals? Come talk to us and we will help you set some attainable goals that will keep you motivated to do the hard work necessary.
Hard work does not mean more work. We take pride in preparing the most comprehensive fitness and health program we can while not overworking people. We believe that if daily tasks are hindered on a consistent basis then life is no fun, therefore; we strive to listen to you and train hard when it is appropriate and train smart when necessary. Having said that, we realize that you have placed your trust in us to provide you the best program we can and we will do everything in our power to keep you healthy while helping you progress and march toward your goals.
All you have to do is come in the door, ready for some Hard Work!

I think it is very important to have an understanding of what motivates people to do the things they do. Without this understanding it is very hard to, in the case of a gym, prescribe the proper workout routine. Thats why I sit down with everyone that walks in the door and listen to what they are saying, not saying and get a clear definition of their goals. Once this is clear we determine an appropriate path to accomplish these goals and more. Many times there is more to it than just exercise although i like to think of exercise and ultimately this gym as the conduit through which I am able to transmit some life changing information.
Ok, back to ME. While it is very important for me to know you and what makes you tick, its equally important for you to know me and what makes me tick. For the most part i am pretty laid back but there are a couple things that get me fired up. One of those is Health. I have no desire to live forever, unless all of you can live forever with me, but i do want to have a Healthy, Happy life. On this premise i have committed to learning everything i can about the Human Animal. I usually take what i learn and apply it to myself as i am in a constant state of experiment with my body. I do this for you. So i can tell you what my personal experiences are with a certain recommendation.
I also understand that each and everyone of you are different and what is appropriate for me, may not work for you. This is true with everything from nutritional needs to exercise to sleep to stress management. That is why you see me lifting heavy weights and then turn around and tell someone else to run for their fitness program. Lifting weights supports my goals and gets me excited to workout but i totally understand that everyone is not me. That would make my life too easy… 😉
Bottom line is i am here for you. I wouldn’t have started a gym focused on impacting peoples lives if i didn’t have a desire to help others change. Don’t feel guilty about walking in the door and hanging out for hours. You are always welcome, especially if you bring food!
Come see me!!
