Fit For What Podcast Ep. 10 Quarantine Mehs: How to Get Going When You Don’t Want To

Feeling just... meh?

First: Know you're not alone!

Second: You have the power to do something about it.

In Fit For What Episode 10, Coaches Megan Holmes and Lindsay Alvestad chat about what to do if your workout mojo is MIA, and why you shouldn't just throw in the towel and wait for the gym to open.

They share insights into their own training intentions and how they've managed to make some gainz from home.

As Gov. Ron DeSantis' strategy for reopening the Florida economy becomes clearer, we know that we're in this for at least a few more weeks. So let's make the best of it!
