I met Dru Patrick at the Super Human Training Workshop, put on by Bud Jeffries and Logan Christopher. One of the things he said was, ” I don’t go to the gym to workout. I go to kill!” He had my attention right there.
Shortly afterwards Dru contacted me about running a Powerlifting class at the Cave.
I met him for lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings in Sarasota and I was buying (I was thinking it was going to be a huge food bill based on his size, but it wasn’t). I look back at that and kind of chuckle about it. I remember telling him I probably couldn’t afford him.
We went for it anyway, and for the next 18 months he ran an incredible Powerlifting class at my gym. It strapped me financially, but I am glad I did it.
Though Coach Patrick is gone from this life, what he taught us remains.
He will not be forgotten!
