Happy New Year everyone and welcome back to my blog! I hope you all are in the best of health, especially dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected us on so many levels. 2020 is finally over.

I wanted to touch upon New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo’s recent announcement on gym openings in New York City. I know many of my fellow New Yorkers are anxious to get back in the gym.

Andre Ward: The Perseverance, Resiliency and Cerebral Ringmanship of Boxing’s Silent Warrior

After watching last weekend’s much-anticipated boxing match between Sergei Kovalev and Andre Ward held in Las Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena, in which Ward earned a victory in a hard-fought, courageous effort, my immediate response was, “now that’s how you respond!”  This fight resonated with me as a perfect example of how you persevere under difficult situations.  It is your reaction to adversity that often determines one’s own success. (Photo Credit: Anthony  Geathers)
