Student life can be really challenging. College students juggle multiple classes, extracurricular activities, and internships all while attempting to have a social life.

I recently joined a gym after a too-long exercise hiatus. My weekly personal training sessions with Jenn that kicked off my new fitness journey have been amazing, but I knew I needed to supplement the rest of my workout routine and give myself some variation that wasn’t running on the old treadmill in the basement.

To me, summer is an ideal time to indulge in a little extra self-care. For some, that’s jetting away on a vacation or taking advantage of Summer Fridays, but not everyone has or can afford those perks.
