I believe that many of today’s diseases are caused by our sedentary lifestyle and bad eating habits. Most people also don’t get enough rest. A healthy, slim, fully functional body and a strong immune system are the basis for a joyful and productive life. Proper nutrition, supplementation, rest, and above all exercise (cardio, weight training, and stretching) will result in such a body.
As a former bodybuilder I have experienced how incredibly good it feels to have a fit body. What amazed me the most are the achievements that can be made from exercising no matter what your current age or shape.
I have made it my mission to share my knowledge and experience with others. It brings me joy and satisfaction improving people’s lives.
