Now that the kids are back in school and fall is here, I have a few moments to reflect on this past summer and the success of our Summer Camp. Every summer for the past 9 years Pro Builder Fitness (personal training in St Petersburg FL) sponsors a FREE 6 weeks Summer Athletic Enhancement Training & Mentoring Camp. This year was a challenge for these kids with all the rain, but we got through it!

It's just a drill but a race to them!
As the owner of Pro Builder Fitness (personal training in the Tampa Bay area) I have been blessed to be able to assist in the development of the area's youth. I myself had struggled with the inner city challenges as a young athlete. Because of this, I recognized the need for an outlet for at-risk youth. That thought soon gave birth to Lives Under Construction, Inc 501c(3)(LUC) because, "If kids don't have something positive to do, there's no telling what they'll do,"
Organized in 2007, LUC uses sports and fitness as a platform for youth development. Instilling discipline, community service and personal excellence to at-risk youth in the Greater Tampa Bay, Pinellas, Bradenton and Sarasota areas.
Thank you to all whom donated to Lives Under Construction this summer to assist in our youth athletic camp. We use the funds to help purchase things like training equipment, drinks, snacks, cleats for those who need them, food and drinks for community service events, T-shirts, and our end of camp picnic.

A few days ago, I had the opportunity to share the love of Christ along with my testimony to a group of financial advisers in support of Lives Under Construction. This opportunity was a result of attending the Tampa Mayor's prayer breakfast this past May, that was hosted by Market Place Ambassadors (a large group of christian business leaders in the Bay). I explained to the group that I take no credit for what God has accomplished through me. I've simply just been a willing vessel to do what He has placed in my heart to do.
