Health Tools Workout Tip
After eating food that fuels the body, let the body burn some fuel! We recommend a forty minute morning super set.
Start with a twenty minute walk / run and then move on to your two favorite exercises at twenty reps each.
That's it! Keep it easy. Go home and eat some pumpkin seeds packed with nutrients and give your day a great kick start ;)
