3 Reasons To Skip Your Workout

It may seem strange to write a post about skipping workouts on a health and fitness blog, but if you’ve been around for a while, you know this isn’t a traditional fitness blog. We take a different approach around here. As many of you know, I coach women through my 6 week online Pilates and nutrition...
