Renon’s thirst for knowledge in the fitness world has led him to train and research practically every known workout program that exists.

“What I have found is that cardio kickboxing is the best pound-for-pound complete total body workout,” he says.  “It improves your overall body composition and athletic performance.   This helps to improve you quality of life.”
