Dude was iconic. Lot of controversy, sure, but iconic none the less.

Quit your hocus-pocus wishing. And start working to make it happen. Success doesn't find you, you find success.

Low effort posts as usual during my two-week annual training. My focus is on my Marines here in front of me!

Working out at Retro has been great. It's not just about working out, it's about the confidence I have gained. Nick just cares about people and their journey with fitness. Before I started to workout with Retro, I didn't have the confidence to go to the gym on my own. But I have been working out with Nick for the last year, and I have gained the confidence to go to the gym on my own. It's just a great group of guys that workout there.

You will never find a better place to make yourself better. The owner Nick is one of the most warm and welcoming men there is, and he is a great well of knowledge that he is more than happy to pass along to you. If you have never touched a weight in your life, he will teach you and watch you and show you and you will leave better than you came. I went here every day of the week for years, made friends, lost weight, learned a skill, and found a passion I hadn't been able to find at any other gym. Nobody here is a "bro" and nobody here will judge you or make you feel lesser than anyone else. It's a family, and you would be smart to try to join it!
