In the Spirit of My Dad: Introducing the FOCUS40 Challenge!

A s many of you know, Focus Fitness Exercise Salon was inspired by and then built for my dad, who suddenly died from a tragic accident only six days after purchasing a small gym with me. My Dad, a retired Wall Street executive, decided to take his passion for hard work and apply it towards the area of health and wellness. He truly wanted to spend the rest of his life helping people find their way back from obesity and disease, so he decided to assist me in achieving my mission: To help as many people as possible avoid unnecessary medications and surgery.

The trunk of the tree moved, but the branches never left the driveway, which is where my entire body was about to be writhing in pain. I felt a pop and then an immediate burning sensation accompanied by a sharp, stabbing, lightening like pain. “Uh-oh, that wasn’t good,” I fell to the ground. “Was that tree just watered or something?!”
