A study done by Oregon State University has confirmed that weight loss supplements do not work and can cause anxiety , insomnia, liver problems and stroke .

Change Up Your Workout and Reap The Benefits!!!

I continue to do my physical therapy for my knee and my daily strength/cardio/flexibility workouts. My parents have a great personal gym in their basement and a pool.

Surprisingly, the only thing that's changed is my environment!
