Warm, sunny, lazy days are almost upon us. Trips to the beach, camping at the lake, patios, pool parties, long weekends, and extended vacations to visit family, friends and far away places.  In between all that, you, like many of us, also have to fit in the regular routine of work, errands, chores and  day -to -day upkeep of yourself and your family.

This brings up the question:  When does anyone have time to exercise?!?

Well that is what our Commit to Fit Summer Challenge is all about.  In 2013 we introduced our first Commit to Fit Challenge.  It was so simple – exercise a minimum of 3 times per week for 1 hour each time, throughout the summer- it prompted many people to exclaim “That’s it???”

However as the summer began, we realized just how challenging it can be to fit in three workouts amongst all the travelling, heat, backyard bbq’s and more.

Our 2014 theme was: Where in the World Will You Commit to Fit?  We had folks doing yoga in front of the Eiffle Tower, push ups and step ups on a log at the beach, chin ups at the campground monkey bars, swimming laps in a lake, hiking, riding, skipping, taking in fitness classes at centres in other towns, and forcing their friends and relatives to participate too.  The photos were awesome.  We especially loved the #smelfie shots of participants “glowing” with sweat after completing their exercise sessions in the heat.

Last year our theme was: Keep Cool!  We saw buckets of ice water, frosty, post workout recovery beverages, dipping of legs in a glacial streams.
