Where to begin your Weight Loss Journey- with MRM

Getting to the gym is the hardest part of the workout. You have to get dressed, find some sort of childcare and then drive there. Even if you workout from home, you have to get dressed, motivated, and then figure out how to entertain your kids for the half hour so you’re not interrupted between each set.
