By |April 22nd, 2015|

Summer is actually one of the best times of the year to get fit! The body asks for more fluids and less fatty foods. Also, you’re able to warm up easily and hence train to tone up muscles; as long as you can avoid getting dehydrated as you exercise. May however is also the month when people slack in their fitness goals blaming the heat, kids’ holidays and more. So, this May at Total Yoga we’ve decided to raise the ante!

So if you want to lose weight; or tone your body; or train for a marathon – the Summer Fitness Challenge Month will help you achieve those goals!
