I spent the past weekend learning the new Balanced Body Bodhi Suspension Training system and was amazed by what I experience. The word Bodhi is sanskrit for "to awaken".

Using the ropes to suspend the body activated the deepest muscles to stabilize the body while moving in and out of gravity.

Everything that we ingest has a direct cause and effect.

Results happen in body composition when we eat food that isn’t complicated and pick up stuff that is heavy. It may sound over simplified and silly but rest assured, I am dead serious. Clients that join up with BodyRite undergo a body composition evaluation on day one of training and then every four weeks.

And pharmaceutical industries have come up with all kinds of drugs to help eliminate or relieve some these diseases, but there is a catch.
