The human body is astonishing. We do everything with it, depend on it, accomplish amazing feats with it. Dance, athletics, sports, fashion all centre around bodies looking and moving well.
Having a good body is important for health, but we also are very conscious of its aesthetic appeal. An appealing body makes us look and feel better, healthier, stronger, faster, and more confident.
Like our faces, our bodies are receptive to ageing, our environments, what we eat, what we do, even who our parents are making it often very difficult to achieve the body we are after.
