interest in health and wellness techniques began at a very young age.
Diagnosed at the young age of 4 with 'incurable asthma', young Ted was one
of the 10 worst asthma cases that had ever been documented at this time.
In order to
control these attacks at a very young age, Ted began meditating at the age
of 5 and later researched nutrition aspects and strictly controlled his
diet. Martial arts training and weight lifting activities were a part of
his wellness routine for building body strength and lung capacity. While
the physicians predicted that he would not live to be an adult, Ted was
able to not only survive their predictions, but go on to found his own
business in health and wellness to help others.
Strength, Inc. began as a personal training and martial arts center under
Ted's personal guidance. Later expanded to include a unique blend of
naturopathy, traditional Chinese medicine, nutritional counseling, and
breathing / meditation therapies as well as corporate seminars on health,
wellness and self-defense topics.
