That is step No. 1 in Newport Fit4Life's four-step system of leading someone to a complete physical restart in their health and wellness, life or athletic endeavors. As a professional basketball player, my body was my job…my life. If I wasn’t in shape, I didn’t get paid. I know what it takes to help people develop a strong, athletic, lean body, and I have the confidence to do that with anyone.” You can follow him on Facebook or visit his gym’s website at
