"The more flexibility you have in your body, the better your body will receive anything that happens – slipping, tripping falling. Bones don’t break because they’re fragile, they break because we fall. " [13:48]

"When you improve your confidence, you’re gonna move more, do more, create more bone building and muscle building stimulation." [25:16]
