Since the new year, I have been trying hard to make time in my schedule to visit the gym 2-3 days per week. I was actually dreading it before I went for the first time, thinking it was going to be so tough & that people would be judgy since I didn't really have a clue what I was doing. However, it's really not like that at all. Everyone is focused on themselves & doing their best and the only way it's tough, is if you make it tough.

To help me along with my workouts & to track my progress, I downloaded the app Aaptiv. This app is an audio fitness class app & I am obsessed with it. You can choose from over 2,000 workouts & select the type of workout you want to do (treadmill, stretching, strength training, cycling, rowing, etc) plus your favorite type of music (everything from rock to indie to pop) & your intensity (beginning, intermediate, advanced). I love that the trainers in the workouts tell me what to do & motivate me along with playing some awesome music to entertain me.

You do have to pay for the app but here’s a free 30-day guest pass if you want to try it out:
