Love to Move: No more fat phobia

Love to Move: No more fat phobia
The quality, strength, amount and utilization of skeletal muscle is at the foundation of health as well as illness”

It’s a fact that exercise improves and changes lives.  The reasons behind this are fascinating.The “Love to Move” series consists of  episodes dedicated to being more in love with exercise.  Today’s episode wants to show you how to use groundbreaking science to embody a love affair with exercise. Even more deeply so, through evidence-based information that gives exercise and muscle health some cred for being able to treat and prevent disease.

You can choose to empower yourself to exercise. Burpeeing yourself to exhaustion will have more purpose. A win-win for your physical confidence and health!
