5 Free Workouts You Can Do at Home
At some point, you may find yourself on a remote contract, where you may not have access to the city amenities you’re used to. Some of our most daring travelers have taken on adventures in the most isolated regions of Alaska, and critical access hospitals in the Rocky Mountains. Some are living and working in food deserts across the nation, where affordable nutritious food options are scarce. As you can imagine, having limited access to healthy food choices and fitness centers can pose some challenges to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. So how can you stay on top of your fitness without access to a gym? Thankfully, there are tons of great on-demand workouts you can do from home, without spending a dime! Check out these five free workouts that will really get your heart pumping!
1. Social Media Fitness Gurus
