We believe – in the use of modern, scientific methods of training to produce the best possible results in the shortest possible time.

We believe – in total fitness for all, but we are convinced that properly supervised competitive athletic activities have an important place in our society.

We believe – that our athletes should be given every opportunity to develop their potential to the limit, not only for personal satisfaction and national prestige, but also to serve as stirring examples to others.

We believe – that with increasing automation the need for exercise becomes steadily greater and the role of the coach and physical educator even more important.

We believe – that progressive resistance exercise involving gradually increasing work-loads is absolutely essential for the development of muscular strength.
