Dare to Dream!

This week, I designed the #TEAMSACHSTOUGH workout to focus on injury prevention, and a variety of dynamic exercises that get the heartbeat on fire! Through my trail running training, I quickly realized how important it is to take time to focus on injury prevention in addition to general strength training. Even better, we're leveraging a few basic pieces of equipment from our home gym and our own body weight making it a stress-free, no-excuses allowed means to get a good workout in. Enjoy today's session with your partner in crime and adapt as need to your fitness level. Safety and proper form are essential!
