When I was heading into college I was so excited to learn about how the body works, how your metabolism works, and how to exercise with proper form and prevent injuries.  I was so determined to be the best trainer ever.  So you mean, “I can meet with people, show them how to exercise and […]

Do you exercise daily?  If you don’t then you probably don’t have a “why” big enough to propel you forward.  There has to be a reason that’s going to stay in your mind during the times when things get uncomfortable.  […]
