Strength Training Exercises to Include in Your Fit-in-15 Fitness Program

Last week, we discussed the importance of including cardio in your Fit-in-15 fitness program. And while walking is often the most convenient and cost effective way to kick-start your program, there are a lot of other fun and interesting ways to stay active over the winter months.
Grab your skates and a head over to the local arena during their public skate times or take your kids for a swim in your community’s indoor pool. Want to try something new? Sign up for a weekly yoga or fitness class, or polish your tennis skills with indoor lessons at your local recreation centre. There are lots of ways to stay active and have fun!
