Find your vision

Quote

Find your vision. Whatever that is. If you don’t have a vision of where you want to be, every day feels like work. When you can see where you want to be, work becomes a joy. Not a chore.

The benefits of training

Quote

Training gives us an outlet for suppressed energies created by stress and thus tones the spirit just as exercise conditions the body.
