4 Free Workout Programs

Whether you're a freshman coming to college for the first time or a returning student, the start of a new school year means the start of much more promises than simply making it to every class.

Like promises to get fit and keep that freshman 15 off, or get your freshman 15 off. 

Usually those promises end in a few weeks with "I don't have time" or "I don't have the money", but with these free, quick and easy workout programs you can finally stick to a workout program without spending time aways from homework and breaking your checking account.
