Fitness tip for RI Fit Readers: Eating clean and being fit is very difficult and in some cases expensive so don’t just point fingers and call people fat. Instead, educate them on less pricey and easier alternatives to a healthier lifestyle. We all have our own unique power to motivate, inspire and cultivate. Find it, use it and you’ll realize the feeling from the outcome is unspeakable.
