Send Your Clients This 10 Min Workout!

August 31, 2016

Summer is starting to wind down and many kids are either back in school or will be very soon… but it’s still super busy as many of our clients are shopping for school supplies and clothes, filling out school forms and trying to get in a little more fun before the summer is over!

Encourage your clients to get at least some exercise in if the don’t have time to see you this week.

Send them this 10 min quickfix workout to remind them that you are thinking of them!  Tell your clients that something is always better than nothing and if you work it, 10 minutes can be an amazing workout!

“Complete each of the following 3 exercises for one minute each with a 30 second rest at the end of each of the 3 exercises. Then do it again 2 more times for a total of 10 minutes. Remember to take a few minutes to warm-up and cool-down and feel free to take breaks if you can’t make it one minute without stopping. Never sacrifice quality for quantity!
