I am person that very much believes in staying in shape.  It is very important for me to feel and look good inside and out.    I have been working out consistently for over 23 years.  I believe physical fitness is a journey that starts with what you eat, then exercising.  Staying consistent on what you eat and working out are the corner stones of keeping your body in good shape.

I created because I wanted to share how I have been able to stay in shape for 23 years by first and foremost eating a nutritious diet and second working out. Working out includes, Muscle building and Cardio exercises.   You look your best when you combine the two.  One without the other leaves a deficiency.
