Regardless of who might not say it, the majority of people who work out do so to enjoy what’s after. This means the fried food, cakes, cookies and yes, the alcoholic beverage. We understand that regular people aren’t out to lift the world or run the fastest mile ever. They just want to be able to be healthy and periodically enjoy the fruits of their labor. The cool thing is our show combines this reality with some great conversation around the thing that unites us, our love for fitness and enjoying what’s after. This show will combine REAL talk with real fitness and real beer.
