Have you ever worked out and glanced up at the mirror and seen a person standing there semi-flexing and admiring themselves. I'm sure you have. They do it for about 1.5 minutes, do a set and admire themselves again....

A Poem

I wake up in the morning and open my eyes. First I thank God for my health. I'm so blessed to be alive.
I love seeing you when I rise and look forward to it every day.
I get anxious when I feel you getting closer as I hear your beautiful sound. Finally you embrace me , surround me in your ambience.
You make laugh at my mistakes and get it right the next time.
At the same time I feel pain but it's so good I can't let you down. Many may come around with the same goals in mind but when I'm with you I don't see them I'm later focused.
My aspirations to be better and stronger than the day before
You make it possible- that and a whole lot more
pix by wallpaperscraft &
Mental sharpness , stress relief, you soothe me with your touch. You let me know when to keep pushing or when I've simply had enough
Without you in my life I feel quite inadequate. If I know you've been gone too long, sad I get. 
The things you do for me I dare to say bluntly, are unequivocal.
When I see what you do for me it leaves me wanting more. 
And you do it for others too, my mouth hits the floor. You're amazing.
Forever more I anticipate your proper touch.
I am with you so much, you can say we're having an affair.
It's just my love for better health and the gym that I share. 

"The Affair" by Carlos Morgan

As always, thank you for your time and for putting your health first.

The Benefits of A Regular Workout Schedule

Consistency is the key. When we stick to a regular routine we develop habits. We develop habits in eating. Our bodies develop habits. Our metabolism even develops habits. We even have other gym members who we come to know in the gym as our gym family. There are several benefits in and out of the gym when we develop a habitual workout schedule....

Hey! Keep it Clean!

What is eating clean? It's actually easier than dieting in my opinion. Quite often do dieters fall off the wagon and eat in such a way that got them to the point of dieting in the first place. Now days the word "diet" is shunned among fitness experts. It's now more of a "change in eating habits." Call it what you want but we know the truth. The way we eat determines our health.

One Meal at A Time: Don't Rush into Eating Healthy....

A great majority of us have been eating chemical -latent foods for as far back as we can remember; even at birth with baby formula. Let's face it guys. Rather physical or psychological, we are addicts-addicted to not so much as the food but perhaps the chemicals within or the thought of a nostalgic taste flirting with our palate. There is no doubt that this makes the "healthy eating" transition a challenge.
