The standard narrative today is that science, technology, mathematics, and engineering (STEM) education is important because we need more data scientists, engineers, and STEM professionals. But promoting STEM education is critical for another reason: it teaches creative problem solving, which is widely applicable and more necessary than ever today. STEM education is linked to success not only in STEM fields, but in many other disciplines and even among many of the world’s most wealthy and powerful people.

Body Beast Special!

Thursday July 24th Body Beast will be going on sale at Beachbody.

I’m a P90X, X2 and X3 girl. I’ve also loved T25, but I’ve always wanted to try Body Beast. How RIPPED could I get? I have no idea, but I can hardly wait. I used to be afraid of the thought of THE BEAST but now it seems like such a cool challenge.

It’s the leg workouts that I really want. I literally want my butt kicked. I think BODY BEAST can do it!

I’ll post as soon as I have the sale details. If you want to join me stay tuned.
