"No matter who you are or what industry you derive, health and fitness should always be a priority to successfully maintain a well rounded, successful and happy life. I believe that to be truly happy, you must lead a lifestyle that is healthy and active. Our bodies were built to be active and physically challenged. We live in a world where we are constantly seated, full of highly processed foods and drinks. It's now more important than ever to get moving when we can, and make good nutritional choices for our bodies and mental wellbeing."
