HIIT it on vacation
It’s that time of year when summer vacations are in full swing and workouts tend to
take a backseat. Of course outdoor activities become a priority in the warmer weather and allow us to explore nature in full bloom when engaging in activities such as hiking, kayaking, Stand Up Paddle Boarding, fishing, biking, running, walking your favorite furry friend, playing catch, Frisbee and even gardening and yard work just to name a few.

need of a workout (we have all been there right?!), try this body weight 30 minute
