(Mark Twight) asked, ‘Would you like to use steroids or HGH (human growth hormone) to get to where you want to go?’ I immediately said no. And he said, ‘Good. Because if you did, I wouldn’t train you.’
So Mark Twight was testing
his new high-profile high-value client.
I bet it went down more like this:
Mark: So...Henry, would you like to use steroids or HGH to get where you want to go?'
Henry [horrified]: No, of course not.
Mark [disconcerted]: Yes...yes, of course. [Thinks quickly] What's that cat doing?
[Henry turns around to look. Mark quickly stuffs the package he has been holding back into his gym bag]
Henry: What cat?
Mark [smoothes hair and composes himself]: Oh, it's gone now. But I'm glad you said no. You see, I was testing you. If you had said 'yes', I could never have trained you.
[has sudden brainwave] Now, I've got some extra-special vitamins you're going to be taking...
