    I am loving the August workout calendar! I’m no longer teaching classes because I’m moving soon and this is amazing to not have to plan my workouts and easily open something efficient and effective that I can do almost anywhere! Today I didn’t have time for long steady state, but I rocked the burn it to earn it circuit in my hotel room and feel great – Thank you 😀
