Derrick Brooks

Derrick Brook's Thoughts on YRG
I am impressed with the YRG workout program offered by Dallas Page.
YRG is more than a workout. it a concept.
It's a lifestyle ...
It's a mindset and an attitude.... Much like it's creator.
I'm not being a salesman... I'm a YRG participant who has used this training in my own workout.
You will get results....
Hey Dallas's passion for the YRG program is unparalleled to any fitness or personal trainer.
I will present this concept, lifestyle, attitude and mindset to the Florida Governor Council on Fitness This fall for Public Schools.

Lee Marshall

Dallas, my doctor told me I am going to die, can you help me? That was the phone call "Diamond" Dallas Page received from Lee Marshall just over a year ago. Lee is currently a working radio DJ and is also the voice of Tony the Tiger. Once a powerful 500 pound bench-presser he was nearly crippled and 70 pounds over weight with ballooning blood pressure. He was a coffin candidate with a rain check for a stroke. Dallas knew what it meant to have major physical setbacks as he had a career crushing injury himself. Today he has fully recovered as a direct result of the YRG exercise therapy program he developed for himself. A year later, Marshall is still around, but considerably thinner and with a significantly lower blood pressure offering the prospect for a long life. His doctor, Sherry Yudell, M.D. jokingly said; "you made a liar out of me."

Who Is Lee Marshall?

Via Wikipedia:

World Championship Wrestling
Lee Marchall joined World Championship Wrestling (WCW) to co-host WCW Thunder alongside Bobby Heenan and Tony Schiavone. He interviewed and announced alongside Mike Tenay and Scott Hudson on WCW Saturday Night as well. A staple of WCW Monday Nitro was his regular cracking of lame "Weasel" jokes directed at Heenan, which would conclude his road reports. He was also known for traveling across the country to host Nitro parties for WCW, while keeping in contact with WCW Nitro through updates by telephone.

Professional wrestling career in Los Angeles
In 1986, Marshall was the ring announcer for the Los Angeles portion of WWF WrestleMania 2.
Marshall was also involved in the Great Western Forum based Women of Wrestling promotion and served as its play-by-play announcer. He was partnered with company owner David McLane, who served as the color commentator on the syndicated TV show, and worked with Bobby "The Brain" Heenan who was the color commentator on the WOW pay-per-view on February 4, 2001. He received by far the most votes in the fan based WOW-FAN awards beating out David McLane and Julie Day as the "Announcer of the Year".

Tony the Tiger
With his exceptionally deep voice, Marshall recently went on to replace Thurl Ravenscroft after his death, providing the voice for the Frosted Flakes mascot Tony the Tiger, signing a 10-year contract with Kellogg's in 2006.

Career as a radio announcer
Marshall is also a longtime radio announcer, working at such stations as KABC and KGFJ (now KYPA) and KBLA and KHJ in Los Angeles and CKLW in Windsor, Ontario, Canada (Detroit). At CKLW, he was one of the anchors for the station's "20/20 News" updates, and at KGFJ/KBLA, he was "King News," bringing attention to the issue of gang violence.

Tito Ortiz

Jacob "Tito" Ortiz (born January 23, 1975) is a Mexican American participant of the sport of mixed martial arts, or 'MMA'. Ortiz's career has been mostly within the UFC organization. A former Light-Heavyweight UFC champion, Ortiz has become one of the sport's most shining stars, headlining several Pay Per View championship undercards, and appearing on the covers of various magazines, such as Black Belt Magazine. He is a native of Huntington Beach, California. Tito Ortiz is recognized as a charismatic, if controversial and highly-criticized fighter. Whatever the opinions of Ortiz, he undeniably is both a showman and a talented fighter.
