Healthiest Foods

Chia Seeds: Like flaxseeds, chia seeds are a treasure chest of the plant-specific omega-3 fatty acid ALA. Unlike flax, though, they don’t need to be ground or refrigerated. Sprinkle into cereals, oatmeal, salads, breads, and smoothies.

Benefits of Group Exercise

Working out with a group brings a social and fun aspect to your fitness. It allows you to feel a connection and team spirit with others, and know that you’re not going at it alone. Being physically active with others also fosters a sense of friendly competition and causes people to work harder than they would have on their own.

Participating in group exercise classes or programs is great for beginners, because there is usually no prior experience required. You have the instructor and other group members to show and tell you what to do, and you can use them for motivation. Being a part of a group also provides accountability – knowing that others will be looking out for you and depending on you to show up.
