Lee Kemp ~ if you don't know this man's work and story, treat yourself. if you do know him, treat yourself. An inspiration in every way~ learn from the best!

Excerpt from my new book 📖, an autobiography "Legend on the Rocks:The Lee Kemp Story" coming soon...⏳️

The Kemps bought a 25-acre plot with a small two-bedroom one bath house and did a remodel on the house adding a third bedroom and bath, breakfast dining room and den with a fireplace, also adding a big “red barn” with cows, chickens, pigs, and there were corn fields as far as you could see, lots of different fruit trees, vegetable and flower gardens; and in no time the Kemp’s had a farm, but they were not farmers. However, the farm felt like a piece of the American dream, so much so that Leroy and Jessie had a large Red sign made with white letters with black trim, which read “LJK Farm”, and attached it to a towering oak tree on the side of the driveway in front of the house. The Kemp’s sign was known all over Chardon and the Kemp’s were very proud of their farm.
This experience for Lee taught him to dream and go after your dreams, because he saw his mother and father do that with their “LJK Farm” in Chardon Ohio. “I remember some of our neighbors in Cleveland talking negatively about us going to Chardon “to live around all
those white people” but that didn’t deter my parents in fulfilling their dream and I got to see that and it was beautiful,”
Lee’s father worked in a factory in Cleveland and his mother was the cafeteria manager
of a Cleveland inner-city junior high school. His new parents provided Lee a stable, yet strict upbringing...

Getting started! 🇺🇸


Memorial Day always makes me so sad... i cannot even imagine the sights, the sounds, the smells, the emotions of being killed in combat.

Day 2!


and here we go~ World Team Trials Challenge tournament


in senior Greco-Roman, we started with six competitors. finished with two champions, 2/3 place finishers, and one sixth place finisher. in third place overall, behind two teams that had many times more competitors than we did. Great job, 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
On to the next challenge 8

The “Have Thumbs, Will Travel!” Story

Keep running on all 12 cylinders, ALL you life! Back in the day, the Team USA Men’s Freestyle Wrestling team had funding for an athletic trainer, but wanted a massage therapist.
i was, and still am, one of the few that excel at both, so my motto became “Have thumbs, will travel!” Today, you can benefit from the same cutting edge combination of skills bringing you 100% results oriented therapy, regardless of your age or goals.
At your location, in my studio in South Scottsdale, at East Valley CrossFit in Chandler, and at Fuego Fitness in Avondale.
you have nothing to lose but your pain and frustration!
