get fit with a challenge
With warmer weather around the corner, many of us are starting to think about getting in shape for summer. To help jumpstart their workout goals, many people are turning to fitness challenges — exercise programs designed to maximize results in a short-period of time, often 30 days. The challenges can range from beginner to expert, and they often focus on one activity (squats or yoga, for example), one target area (core or legs), or in some cases a full body regimen. While many fitness challenges promise major transformation within weeks, it's important to find the fitness challenge that's for you and approach it sensibly to avoid burnout or injury. Here are some suggestions that might work for you.
