Transformation 2020: Fitness for Life

While we are still practicing preventative measures to stop the spread of COVID-19, you may have found it a little difficult to keep up with your typical exercise routine. If you enjoy going to the gym and participating in fitness classes, you may miss the camaraderie and motivation you get from the fitness atmosphere. It’s also normal to feel less motivated to exercise because your routine has been interrupted.
