15 Benefits of Exercise That AREN'T Related to Losing Weight or Looking Good

It can get a tad bit annoying when I hear people talk about how they choose not participate in physical activity. There's a never-ending list of excuses: I don't need to lose weight, I don't have time, I don't want to look muscle-y, or they just don't think it's going to benefit them.

The Basics - Getting Familiar with Nutrition

Fri-YAYYYYY!!! 

Last week I held my first nutrition education session, and last night the second. Two down, four to go (but it's not too late for you to join us! ;) )
