This week’s schedule eases you into the world of Athletic Movement –– an all-levels, practice-anywhere program that combines HIIT-based training with an athletic twist. High-intensity interval training can boost your endurance and your overall health, as well as build discipline and mental and physical toughness. Take it slow as you learn these new exercises; it’s all about quality over quantity. Athletic Movement teacher Dom Termansen advises you to “find a starting point and from there take it real slow. Day by day, you’ll get better and better!”

Read and reflect on the following excerpt from Dom’s article The Athlete & The Artist on our online magazine:
“Art and sport, it’s all about creative expression. You can create something completely new every day. Just by doing something slightly differently. Using a different color, backpedaling with more quad or glute, whatever it is.”
Your creativity bonus for this week is to do one thing different in your daily routine. Take a different route on your daily walk, try a new recipe for dinner, or move while the coffee brews. Think about how you can creatively express yourself in one small way each day.
