Being active and weight training are two other things I really enjoy.

We are blessed enough to have our own gym set up in our home. But I know not everyone has that same luxury. If you are looking to get in shape, get healthier or just want to start working out, but don’t feel like you have the time or money to pay all those gym fees, then know you are not alone.
