Nice to meet you and see the excellent gym-great work setting it up! I look forward to starting soon, and getting the benefit of your knowledge and advice.

Doing weighted pull-ups was fun, and thanks for making sure I didn't castrate myself in my rush to get started. :lol:

We're very excited to be working with the publisher on the Chinese edition of Tim Ferriss' book The Four Hour Body:


The book is available here: http://www.suncolor.com.tw/event/4hour/index.html#b

The FHB shows you how to build muscle or lose weight quickly, how to use the kettlebell to aid fat loss, how to use the deadlift to get strong, and much more. The tips in the book are things most mainstream people have never seen before and the types of fitness he profiles is what has made our business in Taiwan so successful. It's very uncommon stuff.

We'll be teaching a series of seminars on how to do some of the things in the book on Saturday mornings for people that bought the book. Look for more info soon!

I'm here on summer break. I've been looking around for a gym but since I'm only here for 3 months before I have to go back to school i can't find any gyms without a committed membership. Whens the best time to visit the gym, I'm mostly interested in free weight training.
