Happy 8th Anniversary Broad Ripple Fit Club! December 2, 2016

Spend 0% of your time on things that don’t matter. October 6, 2016

Is there fire in you?

Is there fire in you? May 22, 2016

The harsh truth about sugar.

The harsh truth about sugar. February 25, 2016

Most people have a love affair with the sweetest thing. Sugar. Everyone's favorite ingredient. I too am a part of this group, because sugar is awesome. It's not our fault after all, our bodies are hard wired to love and crave sugar. That's right, we're nearly powerless against our instinctive attraction and craving for sugar.
