What’s your favourite breakfast food?
Bananas! They are rich in different nutrients and they can help me in stabilizing my blood sugar, enabling me to think more clear at work and delighting my mood. Also eating banana before workout packed me with more energy. They are in fact my all-time favorite food.
What would you recommend for someone who wanted to workout with their friends?
Many researches have proven that people who exercise with a partner will be more motivated and get better results. I really recommend dancing for friends who wanted to work out together. It does not only provide you exercise and fun, but also help in developing stronger bonding and better cooperation.
