Hard to find motivation? Head over to Urban Active this month for a free workout! Let’s be honest, when it comes to eating right and exercising, motivation and willpower are sometimes lacking. From finding a good gym to finding the right gear, the simple thought of exercise can be somewhat daunting.
However, Urban Active has found a way to counteract your fitness fears! Stemming from Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move initiative, Urban Active and International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association (IHRSA) are collaborating to provide incentive for Americans to implement healthy eating and exercise into their daily lives.
By offering free workout sessions and a complimentary Jumpstart Personal Training Session for its local non-members for the entire month of May, the Get Active America! Plan hopes to encourage people to take the necessary steps towards a healthier lifestyle.
As obesity levels have continued to rise in the United States, Get Active America! challenges adults and children to have an appropriate amount of exercise throughout the week as well as demonstrate habits of healthy eating.
While we know that diets and exercising are the key components of getting healthy and losing weight, the ever-elusive component motivation, is arguably the most important part of getting healthy. While sitting on the couch in the comfort of your home may sound more than enticing, a whole month of free workouts, your body will thank you later! Come on, what have you got to lose, besides a couple pounds?
