Let’s face it. Everyone has something about their physical appearance they want to improve on. Did you resolve to get a 6 pack ? Are your arms getting a little flabbier than you care to admit? Have you lost that 20 pounds you promised yourself you’d lose by summer? Keeping in good physical shape is a constant battle, especially if your life does not march to a routine beat.
