About

personal trainer Ray BurtonI started RaymondBurton.com in 2002 to help personal training clients with their fitness goals. Over time I’ve covered pretty much everything you need to know to get in shape and put it in two books. The first is for losing weight and getting in shape at home. The other is for those that want to compete in bodybuilding.

Now, I am an electrician by day and author by the oily murk of night.

I also do the FREE monthly Culler’s War adventure podcasts and kindle downloads. Think old time radio and pulp fiction. You can get it all here: Monthly Mayhem Downloads

My personal interests to blog about include notes on the books I read by great authors of the past.

Books like Ralph Waldo Emerson’s “Civil Disobedience”, Ray Bradbury’s “Fahrenheit 451”, “Walden” by Henry David Thoreau and “The Conquest of Happiness” by Bertrand Russell. They whisper freedom… and heavily influence my writing.

All we want is freedom and time to do the things we find fun.

For me that’s time to be out side with the fire making or fixing something, laughing with my lady, watching my cat eat and her smacky noises, moving my body easily, working out and napping.

Free in body, mind, finances…Being able to move how, where and when you want… as much as you want.

The Raymond Burton Job History Time Line

I’ve manage a music store, served in the Canadian Army, did a Tour of Duty in Bosnia, ran a gym, was a full time independent personal trainer and apprentice electrician.

None of those really clicked 100%.

… so I’ll keep writing until I’m John Scalzi rich writing stories by the beach 🙂
