In Mike's own words:
My brother and I were both athletes from five years old, all the way through college. Whether it was baseball for myself or soccer for Vincent, we were always active guys. As we got older and our involvement in competitive sports started to dwindle, so did our interest in working out. Once we were not competing at that intense High School, College or even Travel League level we started to lack the desire to stay fit. In our minds, there was nothing else to aim for.
Vincent was always the type to get into a routine. Whether he likes it or not, he is going to stick to his routine and that’s that. Unfortunately, his routine was a boring cycle of treadmill and elliptical, but he did not know any better. I had told him about CKO Kickboxing time and time again but he wouldn't break his routine. He truly believed that he was not “in shape enough” to do kickboxing classes with me. I told him he did not have to be in shape BEFORE CKO and that CKO Kickboxing will get you into shape! Literally, the only way that I could get Vincent into CKO was by OPENING a CKO, and even then he had to watch class first before he would try it. Low and behold, he is obsessed! Not only is he obsessed, he has lost over 40 pounds. He is now in charge of our children’s program and teaches classes for children ages 4-12. The two of us could not be happier with the transformation we have experienced from CKO Kickboxing and now we get to do it together, day in and day out! Moral of this story; Listen to your Little Brother because he is always right! What? No?
