We are all for credit where credit is due.

First we’d like to thank our parents for those times, starting from birth, when…..what? Oh, oh okay, you’re right, we all acknowledge our parents for the things they’ve taught us in life. Alright, well, we’d like to thank our high school teac……huh? Everyone understands and acknowledges the significance of what we learned from the various adults, teachers/coaches/mentors, in our pre-teen/teen years? Okay…. okay, okay….we’ll make it a little more present. We’d like to thank our wives, who……sorry? Right, of course we all give credit to our wives, for the best friends that they are, the support and encouragement they provide, the strength they display and the inspiration they spark within us….you’re right, that’s a given. Lets see, credit where ya’ll don’t necessarily know where it’s coming from. The “Big Guy” upstairs, we have to thank the creator of all creation for………no, no, you got a point……(sigh) he IS the creator of all creation, thus acknowledgement goes without saying (seeing as He knows all of our thoughts before we know we’ve thought them). Guess we just wanted to make sure we weren’t overlooking or taking for granted all the most important sources that have helped shape who we are today as individuals.

Hmmnn……ahh, here’s one for you. We’d like to acknowledge the source of our physical fitness routines, the skeleton of what we do here at Gym Jane………

…anyone….anyone……anyone…..Bueller…..Bueller. No? Jackpot! Alright, we’d like to acknowledge Gym Jones and Crossfit. This is where most of the learning for what we do, physically, occurs. They are both amazing resources, with tons of FREE info, which we are also very thankful for. It is this kind of accessibility that allows everyday Joes, like us, to get a good start on gaining the tremendous benefits this system offers. It is an example of people who take what they’ve learned and, rather than horde it for themselves in an effort to raise their station above everyone else, share it with others, so that the lessons can be passed along and built upon. It makes us want to tell others about them, as well as not having a problem investing money into it. We’d also like to throw a big thanks out to Dragon Door and the guys and gal that were an integral part of it (Mahler, Maxwell, Cotter, Martone, Du Cane, Jones, Lawrence and Morrison). It was the gateway to the current fitness philosophy we now adhere to.
