Fitness

So you fell off the fitness wagon. It’s OK! You just need to find a little motivation to get going, and this 30-day challenge is just the thing to encourage you to move every single day.

This challenge takes less than 15 minutes each day, but it’s meant to inspire healthy habits and give you the momentum to start up a regular fitness routine. Maybe after the first week you’ll feel like tackling one of our 20-minute workout videos or buy a few passes for group fitness classes. Or you might finally get up the courage to join that CrossFit box you’ve been thinking about. Who knows what a few minutes of fitness will inspire?

While doing a bunch of burpees and deadlifts each day won’t be life-changing or give your body composition a complete overhaul within a month, moving a little bit each day will shift your mindset. You will be reminded that you have this beautiful, capable body, and the best way to show how grateful you are for it is to use it! As you get stronger and come to love how energized and excited working out makes you feel, you’ll be inspired to do more to care for your health, both physically and mentally. Let’s do this!
