Guest Biography: 
Unlike doctors or healers who often believe in either one or the other, Dr. Figueroa-Otero believes that a combination of both highly-regarded ways of life are essential to living. As both a former pediatric surgeon who spent 40 years practicing medicine and a certified medical acupuncturist who specializes in disease prevention and modification of lifestyles through holistic Chinese medicine techniques such as meditation, his goal is to inform and educate others about blending these forms of medicine to live a balanced, healthy and rewarding life.

After almost four decades of practice as a pediatric surgeon and nearly a decade of practicing holistic medicine, Dr. Ivan Figueroa-Otero now heals people through the guiding principles and empowering words of his Amazon best-selling series of self-improvement books. Bilingual in English and Spanish, he was a member of the Puerto Rico Medical Association, American Academy of Medical Acupuncture, American Pediatric Surgical Association, and Fellow American Academy of Medical Acupuncture. He is currently engaged in his private practice and continues in his role as an educator, trying to achieve full integration of traditional Chinese acupuncture courses in the curriculum of medical schools.

Throughout his decades-long career as a practitioner of both Western and Eastern medicine, he found that many treat symptoms by either taking doctor-prescribed medications or self-medicating instead of addressing the root of their problems. As a specialist in disease prevention and lifestyle modification, he aims to treat the whole person–not just their symptoms–through holistic Chinese medicinal techniques such as acupuncture and meditation, and often works with other specialists to get patients the help that they need.

In an Amazon best-selling series that explores the depths of the mind-body-spirt connection and offers insightful advice about how we can all better our lives, Dr. Figueroa-Otero seeks to help others find the path of self-discovery and coping with challenges. In his newest book, 'Spirituality 103 The Forgiveness Code: Finding The Light In Our Shadows' he sheds a fresh light on and offers powerful insights to the whole experience of forgiveness, a work that delves into human nature, exploring what constitutes human brokenness and how to heal it This book will help anyone understand why they are broken, feeling sick, bitter, and in pain. This is a book for those who want to experience wholeness in themselves and peace with the universe and with others.

Guest Biography: 
I am Tom Meredith, the Owner of 2/20 Fitness and former owner of Toms Gym. There are a number of things that 2/20 Fitness plans to Deliver that will Separate us from our Competition. We plan to give people what they've been missing from their current Gym/Health Club: Results & Time!
The workouts are designed to take 20 minutes. We Recommend working out twice a week, which gives the muscle time to recover and grow.
After every workout our members will receive a performance summary. This summary will track their progress, telling the member how long they trained, how much total work they performed an how much weight they moved.
Members can follow their progress from their phone. They will also receive a short video from experts like Dr. Brett Osborn, a board certified Neurosurgeon, anti-aging expert, one of the most respected experts in the nutrition industry. These videos will provide tips on nutrition, supplements, protein, fats, carbohydrates, etc.
In addition to nutrition tips, our members will receive value-added content from experts like Bob Gajda, guiding them through healthy activities and lifestyle choices thay can make on the five days a week we are giving back to them.
