So, it’s August! Summer is almost over BUT did you get that “beach bod” you wanted? Probably not… haha, I didn’t either. Just because hoodie season is right around the corner doesn’t mean you can’t stop working towards a healthier you. What are some reasons for not achieving your summer goals? Do you suffer from summer stresses regarding fitness and health? This post is sponsored by Planet Fitness, so let's talk about stress, fitness, health, and … the gym.
Planet Fitness released a Summer Survey on June 23rd that said 33% of Americans rather go to the dentist than to the gym, and that 46% suffer from “gymtimidation”. Do you fall into these percentages? I hate the dentist a little more than I hate walking into a gym. The gym is fun for me but the anxiety beforehand is not.
If you find yourself agreeing with the summer survey, then you will love to hear this:
