The Power of Collaboration in the Quest for Cure
By Phil Kaplan

"We know medication will not cure the most prominent ailments, and with my two latest truths, we consider we can battle those ailments at their core. We’d have to, with those considerations on the table, accept the validity of the thought, Personal trainers, with the right knowledge, skill set, and intervention ability, can better serve most American adults than the current course those adults are ushered onto."
