Fitness with Finesse: The Ultimate Game Day Workout


The most exciting season of the year is back—college football season! Between being awoken by the harmonious sounds of the Gator Marching Band rehearsals, the yummy aroma of freshly grilled barbecue, corn hole games set up everywhere you look, and the sea of people decked out in orange and blue, you can truly feel the school spirit in the air.! However, our football team isn’t the only one that can win the day; you can too! Stay on track with your goals, get pumped for the game, and tone up before the tailgate with this fun and fast 15-minute workout.
