There are basically two schools of thought when it comes to doing cardio. One method, the old school method, is to do low-moderate intensity cardio for a 45-60 minute duration on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. This absolutely works. I have used it for myself and for clients & readers for many […]

You’re right. Balancing a job, a family and physical fitness is hard to do. That’s why you have to make it a priority in your life to take care of yourself. Your obstacles are no different than anyone else’s. We all have other things that take up our time and make it difficult to always […]
