I don't count the sit-ups.  
I only start counting when it starts hurting because they're the only ones that count.  

That's what makes you a champion.

Testimonials

Although they’re a start-up, I would use CoPlantation because they had a fresh open approach which challenged us as farmers and foresters. They understood the motivations of the owner as well as the sensitivities around integrating iwi values into a commercial business. This is not easy but CoPlantation found an effective balance.
