Default No Fooling South Beach April Exercise Challenge



It's that time again, time to set your monthly exercise goals. Whether you're just starting out and getting a few minutes a day in or are an experienced exerciser going for the big numbers this is the place to be accountable and support other South Beach exercisers.

If you need a little extra incentive tank top & bathing suit season is just around the corner here in the Northern hemisphere. Are you ready? So come on in and join the challenge!



Hmm, it's the end of the legislative session so crazy, busy month but the weather will be improving so more small walks. I'm going to aim for 1200 minutes, that's only 40 minutes a day. I want to get back to exercising every day, even if it's only 15 minutes.

1 - 35m dog walk, 10m stretching
2 - 75m dog walk
(120)

3 - 35m walk, 25m hoop
