Olympic Star Workout

The funnest part of the Olympics for me is watching swimming and sand volleyball - truly a rush to see these star athletes perform! Makes me proud to be an American :-)  I thought I would share a fun, quick and intense workout that can make each of us feel like an Olympic star! What I love about this work out is that no equipment is needed and you can do this in the comfort of your own home.

It is easy for any of us to make excuses not to exercise.  If you make it a priority, it can fit into your day - no questions asked. Simply write down in your calendar when you plan to exercise and this step can help you become more motivated to exercise. 

"On Monday, August 4th, do Olympic workout at 7:00 a.m.."- after doing the workout, checking it off truly makes a difference and shows that we can fit anything into our day if we simply make it a priority.  All you need to do is show up and do the work. Simple!
