The holidays are always a great time to relax a bit on your rigorous training schedule, and give your muscles, and joints a well-needed rest. It’s also a great time to visit, and catch up with family and friends.

While training at a seminar in another province, I overheard an interesting conversation coming from the two individuals training beside me.
