I first met Bud Jeffries as a result of getting his  first book, that I knew of, back in 2004.

I recommend all of his books!


As I studied I was very impressed with his both his strength and his spiritual outlook, so I called him and talked for a good while. Needless to say, he has been a huge influence on my training and coaching ever since.

He has been to my gym several times, he did a Strongman Seminar with Scott Weech, Jr., then he came back for Jeff Martone’s  Kettlebell seminar, and once again for John Brookfield’s Battling Ropes seminar.

I trained with him twice at his Super Human Workshops in Tallahassee, Florida. Most of the time, his son Noah was there too.

He was incredibly strong even from a very young age.

In fact, Noah did a seminar at the Cave himself back in 2014.

Noah left this life as a very accomplished young man. Bud and Heather Jeffries set up a foundation to honor him called Noah’s Army

The upcoming Strongman Workshop Bud will do at my gym will be a fundraiser for this foundation. The date will be announced as soon as it is confirmed.

In the world of fitness, fads come and go, but the basic fundamentals of training don’t.

Educating yourself to know the difference is essential.

Fads often show up around New Years and just before summer begins.

Many people suddenly panic when they see what bad shape they are in. They feel lousy and look lousy too. That’s when the fitness scams, like wacko diets and ridiculous exercises, make their money.

Scams are an “easy sell” to desperate, weak overweight people.

On the other hand, those that have done their “homework” will not be fooled.

Solid training concepts have stood the test of time.

The equipment required  for these training methods is usually very basic.

Nothing sexy or flashy, just results.
