Ditch Your Gym For Your Body

The body is a miraculous thing. It regulates your breathing, pumps your heart, digest’s your food all without any conscious help from you. If that isn’t enough, it also offers you a free gym membership to the gym of you. Your body can function as an elliptical trainer, a bench press machine or even that funky thigh master gadget if you so choose. And the perks are many.
