Memorial Day Challenge

While we reflect on Memorial Day today, think about how lucky we are to live in such a great place and honor the men and women that fought for our country.  I know a lot of people have the day off today and a lot of kiddos are out of school.  Let your kids join you as you workout today.  Find some friends to complete this with.  Hold each accountable.  Now, are you ready for a tough workout?   1/2 Mile run, jog or walk (do what you can!) 20 Push-Ups 50 Mountain Climbers 50 Crunches Repeat 3 times!!
