I want to tell all you young men and grown men as well go to the gym, not just the gym that we see here, the iron and mashallah this nice studio that we have. But I want to take it on another level, a more comprehensive level. Gym can stand for three things with the master man method, it is growing your mind growing your masculinity and growing your motivation. So when we talk about this gym, it is going to the gym, but it is required for you to voluntarily go there many times, we've gone to the gym one day, but then the next day, we don't feel that motivated.
