Are Your Loved Ones Keeping You Unfit?
You know it’s important to exercise so your body stays healthy. You really need to move your body if you spend eight-hour days at a desk.

The difficulty is coming home, taking care of a family and staying motivated to get that workout done. Bless their hearts, your family members may be holding you back from getting fit.

How can you get fit despite these setbacks?

You can recruit your family and friends into your workout routine. When you have a workout buddy, you're more likely to complete your exercise regimen. They will learn the importance of your fitness firsthand. They'll benefit from the workout while spending time with you.

Self-care is important. If you take care of others, you must schedule time to take care of yourself as well. Fitness is great for your physical and mental well-being.

Listen in as fitness experts, Grace DeSimone and Neal Pire, share how to get fit when your loved ones get in the way.
