It takes a lot to motivate me to exercise but Physique 57 is the ideal workout, it’s efficient, fun and targeted to get the results you didn’t think were possible!
No, ordinary behaviour. The efficient half eats the less efficient half and grows stronger.

Man is the pie that bakes and eats himself, and the recipe is separation.
We don’t put a dollar toward marketing or advertising. I think we’re more efficient than Facebook.

We had about 60 regions in Greece and now there are only 13. It’d be like cutting down 50 states to 13 and making it more efficient.
