Some words from John-hans:-

According to ancient Sparta history, a mother would wash the child in wine in order to make sure it was strong. If the child was weak, the child would die soon afterwards. Then the father would bring the child to the elders. They will then inspect the child for any weakness. Deformed body parts or weak, they will throw the child into the Kaida.The so called Apothetae, a chiasm at a cliff, of the mount Taygetos.

Born from a true spartan woman, child of a Spartan Warrior, Johnson made it pass the test of wine. Not only did he survived the test of wine and emerge strong, some claim to have saw the young child licking the wine and consuming it. A mark of a true champion they claimed. Twenty two years later, he gained the body of a beast.

Soon after completing his services as a spartan warrior defending the hell gates at the Thermopylae passage, Johnson moved to the city and soon found work in a local gym with the likes of spartan training called Pushmore. He joined in October 2008 and have been doing a kick ass job as a trainer there!

Pushmore and its members have been benefiting from this remarkable man and his abilities to communicate and interact with the people around him. The atmosphere that he carries around with him is highly contagious and addictive. His sense of importance for the people's need first has time and time again rewarded him. He gained respect and is very likeable. In addition to that, his easy going and approachable nature has only help. Indeed he is an extraordinary invidual of influence.

I speak for most of the Pushmore members when I say that we are all very appreciative of what you have given towards the Pushmore Gym and its members. We are all very grateful for your sacrifices and love that you have shown to us. Thank you and we all wish that you have a kick ass day because you deserve it!

On a personal note, thank you for everything that you have been for the past 20 years of my life. You are a great friend, a great teacher, a great guide and most importantly a great older brother. Thank you for everything and all the love that you have uncontrollably given towards me in making my life a greater one.

I love you.

Once again, from everyone at Pushmore, "Happy Birthday!!"
