Exercise Breaks

Having no time to exercise is one of the most common setbacks to working out. However, every little bit helps and a 15 minute workout it is better than nothing. So, sign up for a 15 minute stretch or exercise break with Mary Johnson. She can come to your office or meet you in the gym and find a quick routine that works for you. If interested, email Mary at mjohnson10@css.edu
