Because I Have to Exercise

One day while running like a maniac on the treadmill, I thought to myself, “Why don’t I do this more often?”

Exercising feels good, once you get going, but I often opt out of workouts because either a) I don’t have a plan of attack or b) I don’t have the right tune, and obviously c) I don’t wanna.

In the past, I could get away with sporadic workout sessions. I danced non-stop from the age of five through early adulthood, enjoy the occasional jog, and try to remain as active as possible. Now that I am a full fledged adult (allegedly), I have noticed that my body has its own agenda. Places that were once toned have gone soft and it’s no longer a sane option to do minimal workout and expect optimal health.

On a mission to amend this issue, I reached out to my friend, Natalie. She has her own fitness blog and has done the necessary coursework to become an ACE certified group fitness instructor. I asked Natalie if she could design a six week program that I could participate in, and also share with all of you. She she said yes!

So here we are. A week before the challenge begins and I would love for you to join me. It’s absolutely free. I am a huge proponent of teamwork and I think you are more likely to stick to something when you aren’t in it alone. This challenge is about overall health, not just looking great, but it is an added bonus of taking the time to take care of yourself. There is also a chance to win a $100 Nike gift card…who doesn’t love a good gift card?
