If you want to make changes that are going to stick as part of your routine you have to make it realistic in your life. If you are a busy parent, or busy professional and time is at a minimum, start with something that you can do in your home or office that can be executed without having to go to a gym.
Last summer, I was challenged by a friend to try out swing set burpees and after a few tries I was hooked. When the kids were playing outside or swinging on the other swing I spent a few minutes doing these and the payoffs were huge. If you've ever done burpees before you know that your entire body goes into this movement. And when a swing is close to knocking your head you make sure you get as low as you can, so the burn was even greater.
I few months have passed with freezing weather, but it was time to try out the winter edition of swing set burpees.
I need a bit of a boost to build up the motivation to get outside so I drank Beet Boost in a small glass of water. Beets are a performance food and can boost performance. There is also tart cherries which have been shown to help aid in recovery and reduce pain. There is the equivalent of 6+ beets and 35 tart cherries in each packet.
