    We love a lot of things about summer, but if you HAVE to know why we love summer most: It’s the season when getting a workout in gets as easy as walking out your front door. Ahhhh … breathe in that lakeshore sweat.

    If you’ve set your goals and you’re working towards them, we want to see you in action. We’ve partnered with ENRGi Fitness and MyFitFoods to create the #SweatforSummer challenge to help you hit your summer goals and have a little fun along the way. And two winners will walk away with great prizes from ENRGi Fitness and MyFitFoods.

    Our challenge will take you through the first 12-days of summer, but your goals will carry you through the rest of the season. Grab a friend and shake up your summer fitness!
