Fitness Transforms Every Aspect of Your World

We came to this earthly plane with a body that needs to be nurtured and cared for, and yet, as women we are often second, third or fourth in line to care for ourselves…even when we’re single!

We liken this phenomenon to using the oxygen mask on a plane; you must take care of yourself before you take care of others, or there will be little or nothing to give.
