We finally make a resolution to get our bodies in shape and the nerve to hit the gym. We’re feeling good about ourselves. Maybe even a little excited. I mean, we’re actually working out…in front of other people! Only, we have no idea what we’re doing. So, we make it up as we go along. “Success,” Winston Churchill said, “consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” In this hilarious collection of gym fails are examples of people working out with great enthusiasm, but not getting in shape! And we’re thankful to know we’re not alone.

Can read a trail map, a music score, Chaucer, and a balance sheet. 1 part executive, 1 part entrepreneur, 2 parts geek, and 3 parts Dad. Love lime juice on chef salads and Rudy's BBQ sauce on my brisket.Some days I amaze myself. Other days I look for the phone while I'm still talking on it. On amazing days, I produce technical writing that helps people get things done.
