Syatt Fitness: The Week in Review (12/7/2014)

Cardio - You Mean Running to the Squat Rack


I hope you’re having a fun and relaxing weekend.

From night-time steam boat cruises to praline bacon (holy hell this stuff should be illegal) and extraordinary jazz…this is a trip I’ll never forget. 

Here we are right before our Friday night dinner cruise
