Once you get in the gym this afternoon you’ll be able to shed the stress. Wish you had the sex drive that you seemingly lost a few years ago? Today’s workout will get you on the right track there as well. See a heavy couch that needs lifting? After spending time in the gym today, that couch will be ‘light as a feather’ tomorrow. In other words, exercise makes everything in life better, easier, and more bearable!
