Flexibility and posture - The combination of stretching and the focus on posture means you'll be working on your flexibility. This is so important for injury prevention! Building strength - We use a variety of equipment from hand weights to resistance bands to build you...

Fingernails typically grow at a rate of about one-tenth of an inch per month (2). These impressive growth rates are why nutrition is essential for healthy hair and nails.

Recipe: Worlds Easiest Muesli

I may be a bit biased but over the past year, I have perfected the best muesli. We use it as a topping in the evenings with fresh strawberries and yogurt as a dessert. But let's be honest, that could also be breakfast or afternoon pick me up. Any time of day, this combo is the best. Now, if you know me and cooking, I'm not the best actually measuring anything. I'm more of a 'pinch of this', 'handful of that' kinda gal so measurements here are only approximate. Ingredients: 1/4C liquid honey...
