You know exercise is good for you, but do you know how good? From boosting your mood and self confidence in that little black dress to improving your sex life and even work life, exercise is a great way to improve your overall experience on a day to day basis.
My people...im back again from the twilight zone. I hope everyone has been well and sticking to their new years goals. THere are going to be some slips and falls of course. Never worry about these. The beauty in training and failing is, when you fail, you actually get better!

1. Drink plenty of Water- Drinking enough water and staying hydrated is key when it comes to staying healthy. Especially here in sunny Miami.

ExtraTip- If water seems boring to you, add freshly squeezed lemon or lime for flavor as well as a dose of healthy antioxidants.
