It's not always easy to follow through on the New Year's resolution to exercise. Even with the best intentions, getting it done in the cold, dark months of winter can be especially hard! So many of our clients need some extra motivation. Here are a few fun ways to work out more in 2016!
Exercising can often feel like the last priority in our hugely overburdened schedules. An hour to run? On many days that sounds totally daunting. But the truth is even starting out with 10 minutes of exercise a day is great. Instead of investing time, invest your INTENTION.

In one powerful motion, each athlete swings her kettlebell from knee to shoulder height, pauses, explosively presses it overhead, and lowers it back to the starting position.
Then, without resting or putting the weight down, she does it again. And again. For 10 minutes. Then the men go, holding a 70-pound kettlebell in each hand.
