Norval & Craig Copeland-Bailey with Chad Allen. After I took this photo, Chad asked the guys how long they had been together. Noval said 30 years. And with that Chad brought his bf over to meet the two, asked someone to take a photo of the 4 of them and said I want this to be our inspiration that relationships can be long lasting.

Austin Williams and Eric Fehn. Austin works out at Fusion Cross Training and has the opposite problem that most people had. He needed to bulk up. With Fusion over the 10 wk boot camp program he gained 10 lbs of muscle.
In fact all these guys go to Fusion Cross Training. Gavin McCay is the owner/operator, Joey Hoffman, Joe McCollum, Michael Braunstein, Andrew Pletcher, and Patrick
And here are the results you can get at Fusion Cross Training. Someday I hope to loose enough weight to see my abs, I know they’re there now because FUSION kicks my ass working on my CORE. OMG if I never live to do another PLANK or scissor sit up I would be so grateful. L-R Evan Urbania, guest, Joe McCollum, Matthew Ray (purple shirt), Patrick, Gavin McCay and Michael Braunstein.
I didn’t take this bottom picture.
