Outsmarted by a Bruce Lee Influenced Personal Trainer

Anyone reading my periodic blog posts know that often encourage folks to try out Freddie and his Howard Street business. Freddie offers more than his own brand of Kung Fu; he offers personal training classes at super affordable rates ($20 for 45 minute sessions for prepaid classes) and on Saturday mornings, 9:30AM, he offers a free meditation class - based on meditation techniques, grounded inTaoist philosophy - open to the community. Freddie is committed to the neighborhood, as evidenced by volunteer work he has done for North of Howard groups, and this past week, he offered an impressive demonstration at the Wyllie B. White "National Night Out" event.

Fred’s “Damn Pothole” at Chase and Paulina - CONTEST IS OVER - pothole is filled

Later in the day I drove over to that intersection, immediately realizing that, I, too, cursed when driving over it (ouch!) or, more customary, veering around it.

About the Author

Mike G's photoMike Glasser

Mike has a long term relationship with Rogers Park, having lived here at various times in his life, most recently returning to the neighborhood in August, 2009. While living here as a third year law student, he remembers drunken nights at Biddy Mulligan’s and hosting a couple of memorable parties that he, hypocritically, now forbids his own tenants from having. Years later, after completing his stint as a lawyer, Mike started investing in apartment buildings in Rogers Park (and elsewhere), and soon after, did what many newly divorced real estate investors do: he moved into one of his buildings. In 1992 Mike was one of the founding members of the Rogers Park Builders Group, an organization that he eventually headed for six years, until yielding those reigns three years ago. Around a decade ago, on a whim, he reserved the web site “,” which he has been developing ever since, and which co-hosts RP BizArts networking events. Mike is the proud father of three wonderful children, Amy, Mitch and Ella.
