Forget the New Year!

  Why am I talking about New Years on October 23rd? Because I’ve been in the fitness industry for over 20 years, and I KNOW that, right around this time of year, many people are already telling themselves… “I’ll get started after New Years.” By the way, that’s also usually the same person who GAINS [...]
