Image
It is one of the greatest seafaring tales of all time: the Nantucket whaling ship Essex was attacked by a leviathan—a white whale of singular size and intent—leaving only a few of its crew to overcome near-impossible odds and live to recount their experience.

Now, with acclaimed director Ron Howard at the helm, the legend of the Essex, her courageous crew, and that mythic white whale comes to the big screen for the first time in Warner Bros. Pictures' epic adventure “In the Heart of the Sea.”

Choose Your Own Path To Fitness!

We know that fitness is indeed a challenge for all of us, one can never remain young and strong forever. It does take conditioning, maintenance, and consistency to achieve the body that we want. There are a lot of ways for us to get fit, especially for me who works mainly sitting down and (usually) chomping down a lot of food to keep me focused on my works.
