Wellness In 30
Positive Impacts of Movement
Many of us are discouraged from exercising when we can't find an open 60-minute time slot on our daily calendar. Did you know that you can still reap the benefits of a full-hour workout in a much shorter timeframe? This month’s Wellness In 30 will explore ways to exercise when time is not on your side. This Wellness In 30 is provided by Katie Burrup.
