We truly believe in order to live the life you want which we call “HellaLife” you need to train both the body and mind. I believe you can’t achieve greatness without both characteristics. You can be strong physically but if you’re weak upstairs at some point you will crumble. Being physically active my entire life has taught me to use fitness as a stress reliever but just like we train our muscles, we need to train the muscles of the brain just as much.
