It takes a lot of motivation...

Working out religiously isn't for everyone...And that's fine!
But for many...Working-out is a way of life.
Especially for those who work in high-demand environments...

To be a U.S. Marine...

And even when a person retires from their time in the marines...They are more than likely to keep their fitness with them for the rest of their lives.
One man has very much proved this recently...
