True fitness is empowering and a choice that most of us will hopefully embrace. It is the one real fountain of youth that everyone can tap into.However there is a lot of misleading information out there. WE are responsible for our own quality of life! Not insurance companies, not supplement or drug companies.But if we have and more importantly practice the right information; potent fitness and nutrition strategies can be tools used to enhance every aspect of our lives for the long term.I want to help us all achieve that goal- I see a nationwide improvement in our health but we have to make informed decisions and choose it. I want to hear your stories, your victories, and your challenges in fitness.I never stop learning and this helps me strive for constant improvement.– Robert Marting
