yes… the inertial impulse machine. will you guys be discussing that? :smiley:

I’m for de-inertialising. Getting people off their butts and out to the seminar.

Look out for some brand new material at this one! :smiley:

Once again I am in the deepest of depression - ANOTHER seminar with Charlie … and I will not be there! Everybody attending - enjoy the privilege of learning from the ‘master’ coach of sprints.

My BIGGEST goals in life - to go to the Olympics and to meet Charlie Francis. Maybe I will get to the first part in 2008 … the second goal??? Who knows!!!
