Be Open

In speaking to a friend recently he was examining his leadership skills as it pertains to a small group he conducts at his house every week.

Maintaining healthy weight (or losing a bit if needed) takes discipline, but it doesn’t have to be grueling. For many of us, we think it means sweating off calories with weight and resistance training, but to be successful we really need to combine a good regime of both strength and cardio training…and the latter can be fun!
