I don’t have time I have other business things to do, I don’t have time to be in the gym every day and all day.”
“That is what a trainer does spends all day every day in the gym. I would rather go elsewhere and make $8 million than spend all day every day in the gym. Listen when you are a trainer, you are a psychiatrist, you are a mother, a father, a step-father and an uncle you are everything.”
