Provoke Weekly 08/20 – Bye, bye gym.

Many of us strive to lead healthier lives. We try to eat balanced meals, work out and get plenty of sleep. We may purchase organic, opt for sugar-free and switch to “diet” versions of our favorite soft drinks. We could spend hundreds on gym memberships, personal trainers and the latest As-Seen-On-TV fitness equipment and videos. We force ourselves to sleep in on weekends even when our inner alarm has gone off and we lie wide-awake. The mere act of joining a gym makes us feel like we’re doing something good for ourselves. However, after the first month we might find ourselves getting bored, so we go to the gym less often. Do not fret, there are other things you can do to vary your workout routine. There’s even something you can do right here at work. Here are a few alternative ways of staying fit and strong.
