“Alan Aragon is one of the brightest, kindest individuals I’ve ever met. He’s a pleasure to work with, and if you have ever wanted to change your body, trust him. He’ll work with you and make it happen. But be patient. He’s not a magic man, but it can happen. The key is being honest with him, and then he’ll provide the tools to make it work. Alan is my friend, a good guy, and someone with a witty sense of humor. But from a co-worker standpoint, you’ll find few people who spend more time trying to hone their craft and become better every day. And ultimately, that’s why we worked so well together. We both want to be the best at what we do, and those parallel goals led to some tremendous success.  Plus, the guy can add “bro” to any word. It’s really amazing. And he comes up with some sweet nicknames. You can call me Adam, or Born, or the MH fitness editor. But thanks to Alan, I’m also “The Swole Truth.” Not sure if that’s accurate, but it’s a name I’m happy to have.”
