Monthly Fitness Tip - Are you listening to the research that encourage and foster good health?

Dr. Mehmet Oz (heart surgeon and TV star -- The Dr. Oz Show) is passionate about getting America healthy.  He is amazed that so many people excuse themselves from exercise, healthy meals and adequate sleep -- due to the lack of time.  Oz says: "The truth is, if you can't find time to get healthy, you are not going to be around as long as your kids and grandkids would like."
