Marlon our family trainer, is not only cool and great but he knows how to draw a smile on all our faces as we push ourselves during every workout. A challenge a day is his goal to boost body, mind, and soul.
We had Falafel Tabbouleh for lunch after workout and that brought a big smile on Marlon's face. He said,"The salad is amazing."
