Fall is Here. Warm Up!

With  this  wave of cold weather on us earlier than expected, it is even more crucial to warm up before you begin any form of exercise,

Often skipped, the warmup is a most important step. Among other things,  It lubricates the joints and  get’s you limber, it oxygenates the blood  and awakes your whole system  for the task at hand.

The best warmup for any given activity is that activity done at a very low intensity or some good old calisthenics.

So remember when you hit that elliptical, Walk before you run!
