Who We Are?

I’m Sgt. (Ret’d) Doug Setter. It is my intent to help you get you stronger and healthier so that you can enjoy your later years.

Growing up as a sick, underweight kid, I struggled with getting stronger and dealing with school bullies. Through little known methods I was able to gain 40 pounds of muscle, become a paratrooper, welterweight kickboxing titleholder and author, remove my allergies, run full marathons, climb Mount Rainier and go from a high school C average student to earning a Bachelor of Human Ecology.
