Good Morning my Smart is Sexy loves,

This week with spring being in the air I wanted to venture out and tackle our first fitness health post since, well, we all know… the hotter it gets the less we wear! Who are we kidding!

With her background and expertise I wanted to highlight the foundation that makes for a smart workout – not only the basic BUT key positions that should be regularly incorporate into a workout but the importance of your mental approach to working out on a day by day basis.
