Ron Jones: History of Fitness

Fitness is nothing new--just ignored.  Out of the 21 major civilizations that have failed in history--19 failed due to lack of physical fitness.  Think it can't happen in America? Think again--before it's too late. 
Get up. Get off the couch--and GET MOVING!  --Ron Jones

 "Not less than two hours a day should be devoted to exercise,
and the weather shall be little regarded. 
 If the body is feeble, the mind will not be strong."
