Wine for a Gym Challenge – The Outcome

As promised I'm sharing the outcome of my 45-day Athletic Apex Transformation Challenge. In only 45 days, I managed to gain 1.24 pounds of muscle, reduce my body fat from 15.2 percent to 14.9 percent.

Wine for A Personal Training Review

I love to lift. Nearly every day, the first thing I do when I wake up - 5 a.m. on weekdays - is head to the gym. Currently that health club is Athletic Apex - New York, located in DestiNY USA in Syracuse, New York. This place is amazing but part of its draw is the specially-trained personal trainers it has on staff.

Wine for a Workout Video

Last month I had the pleasure of being asked to create a video to illustrate my workout supplement regimen. Lyzabeth Lopez, an internationally known trainer who created the Hourglass Workout, asked if I would please explain all the vitamins and supplements I use to help build curves. As a "hard gainer," it's long been a struggle for me to put on muscle and weight and I have finally gotten the formula right, thanks to her guidance.
