A workout doesn’t always have to be a trip to the gym or a full fitness class to be impactful. Sometimes, especially if you’re cultivating new health or creative habits, it’s good just to move (or write, read, paint, etc.) daily, even if only for five minutes. This week, focus on the power of doing a little bit every day.

Some days we like to get creative by mixing and matching classes. Start off with Adrian’s strength reset class (especially great for those of us who spend long stretches of time sitting).
