Bodybuilding Supplements | Weight Loss Supplement Reviews I am currently 21 years old and I am a student at the University of South Carolina. I have had a strong interest in fitness since I was 15 years old. My first incentive to workout was to become stronger than my best friend. After this spark was started and I began noticing radical changes in my body, I decided that this was something that I thoroughly enjoyed doing. I hope you will enjoy my blog, please feel free to leave your comments and suggestions.

Why are Sodas Bad for you?

Vitamins, Minerals and Antioxidants

We have heard the expression that if it is too good to be true then it probably is.
