Hopefully you’ve been following our self-care series over the past few weeks (if you need to catch up, click here, here and here), where our goal is to encourage each other to truly take a little time for ourselves, putting our needs above those of everyone around us, even if just for a few moments.

We started out our series with simple things to do that took very little time or effort.  Today’s will require just a little bit of advance planning, and about 90 minutes out of your day.

Our challenge for this self-care exercise is just that:  exercise.  We encourage you to take an hour for yourself and try a free introductory class at OrangeTheory Fitness.

You’ll need to call ahead (the number is 250-483-7444) and book a class.  Give yourself about 30 minutes before the class starts for an orientation, and to the meet the trainer that you’ll be working with.  OrangeTheory combines cardio and strength training for a high intensity interval training workout that will get your blood pumping and those endorphins flowing.

It will be a challenge, and you might be sore the next day, but you’ll feel amazing!
