50 Reasons to Exercise

My name is Amanda.  I have loved being a fitness trainer, Zumba instructor, and boot-camp coach.  I love helping people find a love for incorporating a healthy lifestyle into their own.  I earned my B.S from WSU in Human Performance Management with an emphasis in Wellness and a Minor in Nutrition. I decided it was time to start up this blog to help share motivation, thoughts, tips in to helping you to be the fit healthy happy you!! 

 As a Fitness and Health Blog I thought it would be a great idea to start out with why.  Why exercise?  Exercise and being active is loved by many people, but there are some who may not enjoy it as much.  I hope this list will encourage those that are already exercising and help those that are not to find at least one reason to include exercising in everyday life.

  1. Hi
    I am thinking about taking prohormones, do you think this is good idea for advanced bodybuilder
    like me? People are satisfied with the results after prohormones cycles, just google for – prohormones factory – worth a try?


    1. Bethany, after doing a small amount of research and looking at a lot of controversy on the topic, it sounds like there are certain strands to avoid that can be just as dangerous as anabolic steroids. I would do more research into those. Me personally, I feel there are other options to help to increase size. Do research until you more fully understand what you are taking is my advice 🙂 Good luck
