As a former personal trainer, Division I athlete and now co-founder of a wellness-based company, I never thought I'd struggle with my fitness routine.
Well, I'd be lying if I said I've been more than sedentary over the last few months. Hours at the office have been long, stress has been high (startup life!), my body has felt exhausted, and truthfully, I've lost a little bit of motivation.
Then, this past weekend, a girlfriend of mine was in town and she motivated me to get in two great workouts with her. They were my first real workouts since March.
Having her in town reminded me of why I love to exercise. Not only was I giving my body the movement that it had craved, but my brain felt alert all weekend, and I slept like a champ.
This got me thinking about the times I've been most motivated and active with a fitness routine. It's been when I've had an accountability partner/workout buddy or been a part of a larger community that's helped me to get moving.
Between work, sleep, and just life itself, it can be hard to move as much as we'd like. So I thought: what better squad is there to rally together to support one another to get our bodies moving than our Après community?!
With that, I'd like to challenge you to join me in a 14-Day Movement Challenge starting Monday, June 17th through Sunday, June 30th. Together, we will support one-another in 45 minutes of movement everyday. Movement can mean a killer cardio class, yoga flow or a simple walk around the block. Just *move*!
More details on The Movement Challenge below. If you're in, email firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know. I can't wait to get started!
