Park Workout 101

In this time of social distancing, the hard part is finding time and space to break free from our little bubbles. Waking up this morning, I rolled out of bed angst-y, angry and a grump to the Nth degree (just ask Heather).

Bout time to get out, shepherd some strength and HIIT something to calm the nerves.

I’m challenging you to this workout today. Whether it’s at home or at a park, the goal is to break from from what you are used to. Reach outside your comfort zone and develop a bit of freedom despite our tightly packed world.
