    I can see the diversity and creative thinking with the programs– how about new types of equipment? Have any of the fitness industry pros or regular folks here heard of infrared light enhancing exercise? There is a truly different type of fitness product that can increase the effectiveness of any cardio workout. It’s called StimuLight and it’s based on scientifically proven benefits of near-infrared exposure on fitness.
