get sculpted for spring


By now, most of you are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel – yes I’m talking about warmer weather. But then another thought hits you – In your endless hibernation mode you haven’t given one thought to your limbs in months. Next comes the dreaded realization that not only is your skin pasty (under all that hair) but the months of curling up under a blankie by the fire has led to some muscle atrophy (i.e. your guns and gams look more like jelly). And Egads! Spring break is around the corner followed quickly by the May long weekend and summer. Don’t fret just yet, there’s still time for some quick spring training. So shed the layers, shave those legs and let’s get started.

Whether you’re looking to get toned, sculpted, chiseled, cut or ripped this 30-day (plus one) Sculpted for Spring Challenge is for you. Appropriate for Beginners to Advanced, Beginners using Body weight and low impact movements; Advanced using weights and high impact movements and those in between can use a combination of these options.
