A billion dollar industry screams at us that we aren’t doing enough. That we are fat because we are not clocking the hours sweating. The the amount of energy exerted isn’t enough. That we aren’t doing enough. That we aren’t enough, plain and simple. As I have mentioned before, I was one of those believers…… Continue reading Put Exercise in its Place
