When it comes to working out and all the mental health benefits that go along with it, who better to talk with than someone who helps get the Philadelphia Eagles ready for their season? Philly Live's Aunyea Lachelle talks to Eagles strength trainer Eddie Grayer about how to get back to working out if the pandemic has interrupted your training.

At 5 p.m., acclaimed chef Walter Staib of City Tavern presented the Founding Fathers' Sunday Supper!
