Check Out This Great Workout!

July 18th, 2014

Learning how to work out intensely and effectively is really empowering, because you get fit without taking up too much time. The following workout is one way to get a lot out of a short burst of effort.

Use your common sense whenever working out, and consult a doctor if you’re unsure about a health condition. Though your muscles might work very hard and you can push yourself to your edge, never work to the point of acute pain. Use good form and alignment. If you’re not sure what that is, find someone who can show you, or join the boot camp, where you’ll learn excellent alignment for both fitness and yoga.
