Fairfax Hackley Receives Dwight David Eisenhower Fitness Award

By Dr. Bob McCauley

I first met Fairfax Hackley – Hack as I know him – in 2001 at the Arnold Sports Classic.  He had found a copy of my book, Confessions Of A Body Builder, Rejuvenating the body with Spirulina, Chlorella, Raw Foods and Ionized Water on Nature’s First Law, David Wolfe’s now closed store.  He contacted and invited me to the Arnold Sports Classic, which I AOS-Group-Shotattended.  We’ve been friend ever since.  Hack introduced me to Randy Couture, former UFC heavy weight champion, who bought a water ionizer from me and still takes my chlorella and spirulina product.

Hack and I have remained friends ever since.  He’s a big fan of my work in the field of natural health and the feeling is mutual.  Hack is a voracious reader, which is how he found me in the first place, and he loves natural health.  He told me that he’d read every book he could get his hands on regarding the Raw Food Diet, which is of course, the healthiest diet we can live on.
