  1. Took awhile to find out that Sandy Cove is in Maryland. Obviously won’t be coming from California, but would have been convenient to have the state this is taking place easier to find. Thanks!

    • Hi Lisa,

      Thanks for pointing that out. Those of us on the East Coast are so familiar with it we forgot to take others into account.

      Be blessed!

    • Hi Adam, Thank you for reaching out! Right now, our programs are directed more specifically at women but we do share various fitness tips on our blog that are applicable for men as well. Is there something you are looking for in particular?
