  • Finding routines and balance in daily life
    Over the past five years, I’ve been working hard to find a workout routine that would allow me to maintain strength, flexibility, and overall general wellness, that didn’t require me to dedicate two hours a day between driving to and from the gym and the actual workout. Not only did I not want to carve those hours out of my day anymore, but I also started to battle fatigue, so I couldn’t sustain my rigorous workouts of the past any longer.
