Healthy Hollywood loves waking up early and hitting the gym and discovering Men’s tennis season has officially begun. Yipee!
The Australian Open kicked off this week and so did the season of hot guys on the court. Unfortunately, my ultimate favorite, Rafael Nadal, dropped out of the tournament due to an illness, but the rest of the guys are back in action. Andy Murray, Roger Federer, and Novak Djokovic are all center court.
For Healthy Hollywood, there’s no better viewing on the treadmill than well-toned tennis dudes. Besides, the eye candy, these hard-bodied athletes are an inspiration to eat well and exercise.
Thankfully, Healthy Hollywood stumbled upon an awesome eating plan for anyone who wants to get back on healthy eating track.
