Top Ten Blogs of 2017
It seems like only weeks ago that I was sitting down to share with you all the happenings of 2016. Now, I’m back to try and encapsulate all the notable things that happened in 2017. We launched our mailing list, and produced 26 podcasts. 2017 also saw the arrival of our balance series of workouts, Barre Method Level 1, Foam Roller, and Interval Training workouts.
And of course, we dug deep and challenged ourselves to bring you interesting content on this blog. We could not have done it without our fine guest contributors, and our community, who wrote in with topic ideas. So here, in the spirit of the New Year, are our top ten blog posts from 2017. We hope you will find something here that inspires you. If you’ve read them all before, maybe one of them will spark in you the desire to renew a commitment you made when reading it.
