Along with summer comes the good old saying "I'm working on my summer body". Most of the time, people try their best to get in shape for all the wrong reasons. Summer time should be about spending time in the sun with family and friends, not worrying about what you look like in a swimsuit. This summer, put aside time for yourself and try something new!

Now a days, there are so many different work outs to choose from. But, the only way to find one that works for you, it to test it out! Here are a few suggestions to get you started: ariel yoga, barre, boxing, hot yoga, dance, and HIIT. My favorite workouts come from the Tone It Up and PopSugar Fitness Youtube channels.
