Talking to Jay Ackerman of R.E.A.C.T.™ Defense Systems

"Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever." ― Mahatma Gandhi

In response to my previous post regarding my 90 Day Fitness Challenge at R.E.A.C.T.™ Defense Systems, I was invited to sit down with Chief Instructor Jay Ackerman and talk about my experiences not only with the 90 Day Challenge, but at REACT in general.

It was a huge honor. In my almost 4 years at REACT, I've never had the opportunity to sit down and talk to Jay. He works out of the Phoenix location, and I train at the Glendale location. But Jay and his family are the people that started REACT. They are the people that keep it running. Everything that I've gotten out of REACT, and there has been much, I owe to them.

The video runs just under 10 minutes. We actually spoke for closer to 20. I could have talked all day. I'm grateful every day for what Jay's put together, and thankful that I get to be a part of it. I appreciate the fact that I was asked to sit down and do this interview, and that among all of the other students who leave it all on the mat, I was recognized as Student of the Month.
