Q: Do you think fitness is important? Why?
A: “I do think fitness is one of the most important things there is because it’s not only good for you, it’s really the only fountain of youth we have. It’s such a nice stress relief. It really is. When you have regular exercise that is challenging and you get through that, it really makes you feel better and helps you relieve stress.”
