He put himself "In prison" as he liked to say. Long runs along the dunes in Provncetown, sparring, bag work, rope skipping and endless calisthenics. Nothng fancy but the basics x 10. He proved that with hard work and dedication, you can excel without the the gizmos and gadgets alot of people think are a necessity.

What on earth are people talking about with this 'high tech', 'gizmos and gadgets' talk? Do people think there's a modern machine that works out for you?
