When I picked out my business name, I liked the sound of it, etc, but it didn't really sink in until recently that the word "commit" is so powerful!

A lot of my female clients ask me for ways to strengthen their back, which is good to maintain good posture and ensure proper cervical alignment. Below are four back exercises that I recommend for my female clients.
