Fitness Goals

I know it’s important to stay healthy and active, but I don’t always have the time to do a 30-60 minute workout every day. If you or a friend are struggling to stay active, that’s okay because I’m struggling, too. Between school work, social media, and social life, it’s hard for me to have that 1 hour cut out for a workout. So what do I do?

Staying active don’t always mean 30 pull-ups, 45 mountain climbers, 50 push-ups, 100 crunches, and a mile jog, but if that is what you are doing and have the time, great, keep it that way! If this is not what you’re doing, that is fine too; everyone has their own routine, whether it’s set or they change it up every once in a while.
