Do you remember how much fun exercise was when we were children? We didn’t call it exercise though; we called it jumping rope, kicking the can, skate boarding, playing hopscotch and running.

Our days are too long, our free time is too sparse, and exercise becomes another chore to cram into our already hectic day.
