August Fitness Challenge – The Lunge

The Lunge – Your August Fitness Challenge

Hopefully, you were able to get out and be active in July.  We’re shifting gears in August and focusing on one specific exercise – the lunge.  It’s the August Fitness Challenge!  See how many lunges you can do this month, with proper form of course!

The lunge is a bodyweight exercise that strengthens your quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes and hips.  There are several variations of the lunge. Check out this video and decide which version is best for you.

Your August Fitness Challenge is to see how many lunges you can do each day while maintaining good form. Stop by BRIO and get a calendar to keep track of how many lunges you can do in a month. Are you up for the challenge?  Good luck!

We can’t wait to see your progress!
