If you like EDM, I think you’ll love it just as much as I do.

First blog post of 2015. Actually, first blog post ever.

Over the years I have learned that the fitness industry has no limits. Every day I browse Instagram and Twitter and discover some crazy new workout. Um, who wants to be modelFIT? Me! Well apparently there is a dude in NYC dubbed the “The Model Whisperer” who can make that happen.
