Level Up your Workout with these 5 Fitness Challenges

Breakout of your fitness comfort zone and challenge yourself with these ideas!

Getting fit and healthy is no easy task. It requires a lot of focus and determination and sometime the hardest step is knowing when to start. You have to sacrifice a lot, for example, your time. You will be spending less time on activities like watching your favorite Netflix series and focus your time on going to the gym for your grind towards your desired body. But getting immersed in a fit and healthy lifestyle does not mean that you will fully miss your favorite Netflix show, you can still watch but you might rather use that to sleep and rest because exercising and fit is a tiring activity as well. So it is important to make a workout routine so that you can still balance your time for some things that you really want to do.
