One of the biggest challenges people have with incorporating physical activity into their daily life is not having enough time to fit it in! A trip to the gym can get overwhelming when you are working, in school, a parent, trying to cook, clean, have a social life, etc. That being said almost all of us can find 15 minutes in our day.
