Admit it, our body feels so good after a workout. Whether it be Pilates or Yoga, a brisk walk or long run, a strength training session or a Sweat Therapy class, our body is meant to move. Be good to it and it will return the gratitude with a stronger heart, clearer mind, and fitter physique. The longer you stick with exercise, the more habitual it becomes. When you miss a day, you develop a craving for it, which helps you jump right back in the following day- and the next.
The number one way to reach your goal is to keep on moving. Never give up, ever.
We go to bed with the intention of waking up feeling alive and rejuvenated, only to spend the rest of the day counting down the hours until we can soundly sleep again. We’ve all been there. But, did you know that exercise can actually help you sleep better and improve your mental alertness the next day?

Thanksgiving dinner is potentially the most celebrated meal of the year. Many of us plan our menus, flatware and tablescapes weeks in advance; why not plan our workouts too?
