I realize I love lifting weights. I experience a euphoric feeling - the same feeling when I listen to music, write, dance, read, paint, and meditate. These are all forms of self - exploration.

It has given everyone a feeling of purpose and community. Forus Athletics has been running a campaign on the crowd-funding site Indiegogo.com, and there are only 4 days left.
