About Dr. Fisher
"I was born and raised in Detroit Michigan. I moved to south Florida at 14 years old and joined the YMCA to take up scuba diving. I would walk by the weight room everyday on my way to the pool and stand outside the weight room. I was fascinated by the intensity and methods of the athletes. One day, a massive body builder came up to me and said "You stand out there watching us train, why don't you come in and we'll show you how to train." I came up with all the excuses: too weak, too small, no knowledge, I would just slow them down. He said "look around, everyone in this room started out in the same place. Come on in and we'll show you how to train." My passion for training started that day. The dues are catching up with me now but I have not lost the desire. Creating an environment where that desire can be cultivated continues to be a goal of mine. Give us a try, we'll show you how to train."
