The Weight Is Over!………….Finally!

I am extremely passionate about fitness and health & wellness.
I’m a dance teacher (among many diff. jobs) and have my BCRPA certification in group fitness. Over these past few years I have been reading more and more about safe training for different types of fitness and nutrition. The more I read the more I saw ad’s and claims such as “flat abs in 6 days no exercise required” or “shed fat by cutting carbs”. A bit of  schooling and common sense had me question these claims.

The more I read the more I believe there is a simple solution to looking and feeling your best……
