Listen on

Episode notes

Coach Kortney joins us today as we talk about something really fun-damental: the components of a sustainable healthy lifestyle. There is more to your health and your body composition than how much you eat or how many hours you spend in the gym. By taking a more well-rounded, comprehensive approach our clients see better and longer-lasting results. Listen in as Sue and Kortney chat on all the pieces that go into the puzzle.

As always, it is our goal not only to supply you, the listener, with valuable insights on the topics or questions but also to plant some seeds for further research and thought. Without further ado, let's get into today's episode.
