Aron, Aimee, Jesse, and Matt have plans to get really Buff this summer.
We have  been running 4-5 miles at the track-distance training, weight
lifting at Momenta and practicing Yoga . Buff worked out on a climbing
wall installed in Chris and Kristens James Studio. We also ran to White
Columns  where we hung our smelly  shirts on the wall .

There has been an over whelming response to  the first news letter: such
positive encouragement, great health tips, exercise programs, project
proposals and performance invitations .

All of your responses have been extremely beneficial to our progress,please
continue to correspond and feel  free to join Buff for any of our schedule
activities. Buff has big plans for a  fall  of health , leisure, and, as
always optimal physical, mental and spiritual conditioning.
