When focusing on your health and fitness goals, crushing your workouts isn’t the only thing you need to be tackling.

Say YES to every opportunity that comes your way. Without thinking about it say yes. Do not let the fear of the unknown and the feeling of discomfort steer you away from stepping out of your comfort zone.Read More
