Three days of activity each week in the gym or walking/rowing is the commitment I am making. For all those making similar commitments, I wish you much determination and success!

Goal is to train until I can do 6-10 chin ups!

Joined a month long new athlete cohort at our local CrossFit Gym. Really enjoying the community of people and learning things that are little scary- like handstands and Olympic lifts!   All bodies can be strong!!  I'm committed to trying new things and putting in the work to be healthier and more functionally fit.

I plan to elevate my fitness routine since moving from Texas to the DMV. I purchased a Peloton bike yesterday to get moving on a regular basis. I commit to working out before work to prevent excuses after work. 

I want to commit to a healthy lifestyle that includes being active and going to the gym, whether that be weightlifting, cardio, yoga or a little bit of everything!

I plan to commit 45 minutes of my day (4 times a week) to physical activity through variation of exercises. By doing so, this will allow me to focus on different parts of the body and help lead me to a healthier and proactive life. 

I commit to taking 3-4 times a week to get physical exercise whether it is walking, hiking, or running.

Health is about exercise, good food, and relaxation.

I commit to spending at least 30 minutes a day outside, getting fresh air and moving my body (be it by walking, running, or yoga). 

I commit to moving my body 4-5 times a week whether that is lifting weights, pilates, or cardio.

@AnnieG2, I struggle with time as well. Commute to work, school, and then life. I bought a Peloton-ish bike this fall and loved riding it and using the Peloton app (which you can purchase independent of the bike itself) love the instructors for classes, so many options!
