30 Days of ZooFit: Day 15- Fate of the Die

When we have fun in our workouts, it doesn’t feel quite so much like work. I love playing games with my fitness program. This summer’s cycle is a game in itself for choosing our workouts.

30 Days of ZooFit: Day 7- Get By With A Little Help From My Friends
