Are you looking to increase your income and the opportunities it will bring you?

Then you need to get out an exercise.


A recent study by American Council of Sports Medicine (ACSM) found that, “Workers who exercise regularly earn 9% higher salaries than their colleagues who do not.”

9% more by getting out an exercising.

How will 9% more be able to help your family?

How could 9% more enable you to save more?

In fact, even if you were a weekend-warrior exerciser, you reduce your risk of dying prematurely in comparison to your sedentary counterparts.

Not dying prematurely is a good thing!

Jon Rooks and Brad Gruizinga, developers of Union Square and Boardwalk condominiums, understood the importance of fitness in our lives, when they included fitness facilities in their properties.

Make 2014 a year to grow your income.  Get out and exercise!
