8 Exercises You Can Do Anywhere

Workout Anywhere - themiddleofhere.com

In terms of fitness, I go through cycles (no pun intended) of what I commit to doing regularly. I like to switch it up and am always game to add new workouts to my routine, it helps me stay challenged and prevents my workouts from feeling stale. Living in Tahoe affords so many opportunities to opt outside that I can hardly stand to workout at a gym anymore, especially during summer. When I’m not taking advantage of the countless outdoor sports…
