7 Minute Workout Challenge

With summer around the corner, some of us might be starting to realize that we’ve put off

that new years resolution to get in shape a little too long. So, as bathing suit season

approaches a lot of people might be turning to drastic measures like restrictive diets and

boot camps but a new fitness routine and app can help make getting back into shape just a
