I would like to personally thank each and every one of you for your support over the years and your continued support in this troubling time. I thought about making my online site (caioterra.com) free to all the members of our gym, but this is a bigger issue than one gym, one town, one nation. With that in mind,  I’ve decided to offer free online training for the next two weeks. THANK YOU AND THANKS FOR SUPPORTING ME! - Click Here
