Back in action

I want to thank everyone for the emails and comments regarding the accident. I really appreciate everyone’s support.

I was back in the gym yesterday. It felt great to be back. I was just coaching, and not actually training myself, but I’ll be back up to speed in no time.

The accident really served as a wake up call. I always try to enjoy life, my family, etc… but it is human nature to get lost in the commotion of each day.

One minute I am saying good bye to my son, and the next minute (literally 2 minutes later), I almost crash off a cliff. If it wasn’t for the guard rail, I’d be a distant memory. I definitely owe a BIG thank you to the crew who installed the guard rail. I can’t believe it sustained the weight of the delivery truck. I glanced over the cliff and was at a loss for words. It didn’t sink in right away that I was a few feet away from an unattached bungee cord jump off a cliff.

I will not dwell on the past however. What’s done is done. It’s time to move on. I’ll be fine and I’ll be back to my routine in a week or two.

I’ll get back on daily blog entries tomorrow and will be moving servers either later this week or early next. The change should mean the end of error messages and slow loading pages on the message board.

Thank you again for your support. Now, let’s get back to busting ass in the gym!



  1. Well, one incident changed my life as well. One day I was healthy sparring in gym, second day I woke up and after couple of minutes I have to call ambulance. I spend week in hospital unable to move and boy, that’s a lot of time to think about life, lifestyle and preferences.
    It changed me forever and I often wonder why people need such ‘wake up’ call to change diet, to exercise to enjoy life even more than till now.
    I see so many cases around me…

  2. “The king is back in the ring”. :):) I’m happy to see you back. It’s true, in the fast lane of life we often forgot the people we love.

  3. I am new to your site, but in the last two weeks you have been an inspiration to get my lazy bum fit! Hope you OK fella take care…

  4. Holy crap! You almost went over a cliff?? That is dramatic! I’m glad you are OK and ready to get back at it. Stay healthy.

  5. Glad to have you back, Ross! Without getting too heavy and philosophical about ‘accidents’, sometimes they DO teach us lessons. A bit like illnesses (e.g. see T. Dethlefsen’s book ‘Healing Power of Illness’), accidents are offering us an invitation to reflect, learn and *then* move on. I speak as someone who had a bad (but could have been a lot worse) accident falling off my climbing wall onto a staircase on my 40th birthday! What the lesson is? Well that’s up to *us* to fathom.

    Anyway, keep up the great work.
