Hello from Legendary Fitness!

        …transforming your goals into legendary results.


What is the point of resistance training?  Is the point to move a weight from point “A” to point “B” or is there more to heading to the gym to move around the weights?  Fat people go through the biceps curling action many times each day as they lift a fork, but, this no load curling action does nothing to build the bicep muscle.  Why?


To learn more about the point of resistance training and the physiological changes that occur from solid lifting techniques, check out our latest Bodybuilding for Baby Boomers article on Bodybuilding.com.


News About Us

Hurricane Ivan kept us from sending our newsletter last week.  18 hours without power was just long enough to appreciate the importance of our utilities without a great deal of inconvenience. Our internet cable was out for several days making us wonder how we survived without a wireless system just a few short years ago.


In the aftermath of this devastating storm, we did venture down to our beach area in Panama City to see the level of destruction resulting from the tornados.  Newspaper photos and TV images only provide a small glimpse into the damage from the storms.  Towns to our west will be without power for months and the schools are closed indefinitely.  Think about that as you go about your daily routine today.
