Move It Monday: Weekend Walks


From our friends at #MoveItMonday!

Walking isn’t just a weekday activity. Weekends are a great time to go for a walk. For starters, you don’t have things like work and picking up / dropping off the kids consuming huge chunks of your day.

You also have the time to go for a walk at location that isn’t near your home or office.

See our ideas for a weekend walk.

Move it Monday: Fall in Love with Fitness


Falling in love with fitness means finding exercise you love and want to return to.

Any routine done mechanically day after day can dull your muscle response, making your workouts less effective. But when you put your heart and passion into something, especially movement, you always get back more energy and joy. So ditch that monotonous treadmill and try out something novel that could really pump up your fun quotient.
