It’s like going on vacation with another family for a week, and, on day three, your bowels override the Jedi mind tricks you’ve been using to cease all awkward social habits.

Want to know what fitness is all about when you get rid of the marketing fluff and stuff? It’s the process of influencing the decisions your body makes about itself. That’s all.

I try to make the complex junk going on underneath your skin easier to understand. I have a bunch of free articles up on the site you can browse, but I also have a private email list.
