How to Fuel Your Body for A Better Workout Performance

 

March is National Nutrition Month, making it a great time to give some thought to properly fueling the body for optimal performance. Filling the body with the right fuel can help improve the workout performance of busy adults, as well as the millions of young athletes who play organized sports.
