Others love their specific niche workout class. I love spin and riding horses, two things I currently can’t do at home. I’m keeping my eye out though for a good spin bike at a reasonable price.

If you want to try your hand at some different at-home workouts,…

    Daily Walk + Trails in Virginia

    Hi y’all, It’s no secret I love a good walk. In fact, my daily walk is one of the few things that keeps me sane when I can’t go to the gym or cycle class at Zoom. While Beachbody workouts are great, and I truly enjoy doing them. Plus, there are tons of alternative options on Youtube, on Obe Fitness. However, sometimes I don’t want to do a guided workout. Instead, I go for a walk. It’s no secret my weight has fluctuated over the years. Besides a good Beachbody workout, the best workout I have found to help me tone up is a good walk. I live in central…
