But did you know that the answers to these quizzes - your real personality type - influences how you work out?

Is there such a thing as the "FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH?"

Filed under: ,

I recently received a phone call the other day from a middle-aged person who was interested in getting some information about my personal training services. As I do with every person I speak with, I always try my best to let the person know of the great benefits from exercising vs. not exercising and also of the impact of not maintaining a well balanced diet. Here are just a few things that I was able to share with my "perspective" new client:
