What are your top 3 tips to stay motivated with fitness?

  1. Find something that feels fun, a great community will help with this!
  2. Stay consistent in order to create a habit.
  3. Allow yourself grace - not every workout will be your best, some days you may need to make less intense, and some days you may shock yourself with your own strength. Take it one day at a time!
