Fight Off Sick and Stay Fit

Women’s Strength Nation is committed to helping you feel strong in every aspect of your life. Yes, part of feeling strong is related to physical strength from workouts. For me, feeling strong on a personal level is completely dependent on my health and energy. If I don’t feel physically well….well, the whole world feels like it’s crumbling. And when I feel well? Wow, the world is amazing. Do you experience the same?

Because cold and flu season is upon us – and yes, even yours truly gets sick every now and then – this week’s email update is the first of a two part series on how to fight off getting sick so that you can stay fit! Click on the video below to check out the 3 things I rely on when I feel a cold coming on.
