I recommended Mr Smith's IronTeam as a squad for everyone. Gerrard understands real world problems like balancing work, family, injuries and plans accordingly. 

I really enjoyed meeting and training with similar minded people from all walks of life. No egos but plenty of smack talk! Thanks Mr Smith and the crew.
