Fit Report – June 21st, 2016 – Abs/Core

Another complicated workout of figuring things out. And it certainly didn’t start well. I hopped on the treadmill to start today’s workout, and almost immediately noticed pain around my left heel area. Not the same pain as I had before, … …but wait, there’s more! »

Fit Report – Dec. 8th, 2015 – Fit Fixed
