Why is it that people don’t become FIT?

In a country like ours, with the opportunities that we have… Why is it that so few people reach their health and fitness goals? Why is America getting fatter every year? Why are more and more people signing up at gyms but ending up quitting after a month […] Read more

In return opportunities could then be presented to him because he was open, prepared, and ready to take them on.
