THE RILEY/LAND COLLECTION
If you don't know joseph, owner of THE RILEY/LAND COLLECTION, let me introduce myself. At one point, if you visited this website, you knew me personally, but thankfully we have grown larger than that now. My personal background story is key to understanding the significance of this product.
I struggled with my weight since I was a kid. I was
Yeah, I’ve been called all of that to my face. I shudder to think of what I have been called behind my back. After seeing a horrendous photo of myself on the beach in Trinidad, I realized I had to make some significant life changes. The thing is, while trying to lose weight is hard for everyone, doing so as someone who has always been overweight is overwhelming. I remember looking at social media posts of guys who worked out all the time, who lived in the gym, and thinking there was no way I could ever make that seismic a shift in my life.
I signed up to train with Deon Giddens, anyway. I was terrified. Especially after watching video of him standing inside a stack of tractor trailer tires and jumping out like it was nothing. And yet, I stayed. It was the most humbling experience of my life. I realized that I had zero athletic abilities and this was going to be my life’s greatest challenge. Deon owns a gym called Training Corner. He trains high school athletes, he trains (D-1) college athletes, he trains professional athletes (the Dodger’s Mookie Betts, the Titans’ Josh Malone and Racey McMath, the Jaguars’ Chris Claybrooks, and more). And, just as important, he trains me. Okay. Those are his bonafides.
I’ll speed up this story. You have the basics now. Deon has helped me lose more than 100 pounds (and almost 20 inches), as well as bulk my body. He’s taught me speed and agility since Day 1. The moral of the story is that when I walked into Training Corner, I was the proverbial underdog; the lost cause. So if I can make magic happen, literally anyone can.
Not everyone has access to a gym. Not everyone can afford a trainer. Not everyone has the time to spare that I have dedicated to this undertaking. So, Deon and I decided to team up and put together a collection of the essentials to help people work out at home, in the park, even in your hotel room when you’re on the road. The bag includes:
There's a reason I put together this particular package. The speed and agility training Deon has provided me has truly improved my performance. I have done complete workouts at home, at my parents' house, in a hotel room, with the contents of this bag. Deon trains teenagers. Deon trains people in their 60s/70s. And we all use these bands. We all use the ladder. We all use the cones. We put Deon's brand on it - because he is the one who owns a gym. But I am the one who picked the items that went into the bag. He has trained me well. I cannot be more clear - I believe in this because my new existence is a direct result of these tools.
I own a tiny business. If you don't know how to use these tools, email me and I will explain them for you.
