About a year ago, a young man who I knew causally at work, came up to me and said "I hear you're a guy who can get someone in shape". I said I was asked him what he needed. He had just failed a fitness test for the FBI Academy- by one point. I said, "okay, we can do that, but we won't be going for one point, we'll be going to crush the fricken' thing. You game?" He was. We had three months. He wanted to know when we could start. I told him "Right now. And we don't do it the Law Enforcement way, we do it the Martial Arts way." I called his supervisor and said I needed him for twenty minutes, then called mine for a twenty minute relief. Off we went to a storage area and started doing push ups, sit ups and pull ups. We did them every day at work, every day after work, every day when we were off. I did everything with him except the running - I don't run any more unless I'm chasing someone. I made him run while I yelled at him with a stopwatch in my hand. God bless him, he showed up every day and worked his tail off. And he absolutely crushed that test, top of his class. He graduated from the FBI Academy today. That's him on the left. Got me all teary eyed this morning.
