Sleep your way to your goals!

Getting less than 7 hours of sleep on a regular basis can eventually lead to health consequences that affect your entire body. Poor sleep is a single factor that can destroy your health, cause weight gain and muscle wasting. Your body needs sleep, just as it needs air and food to function at its best. In the aspect of health, fitness and weight loss, sleep is equally as important as diet and exercise.
