Arc Alive, our wellness committee, offers ways to stay healthy and well during the holiday season.
Find time for fitness
FITON is free app that I downloaded on my phone and it has access to so many workouts, stretches and simple exercises- and did I mention it’s free?!
The best part is you can chose the amount of time you have to exercise (the first one I did was only 10 minutes), the type of workout and your level of intensity. You can pull the workout video on your phone and instantly have a great trainer encouraging you along. It’s quick to access, simple to follow, and free!

Maintain a routine
I teach cycling classes at the RAC for Women in Greece every Tuesday and Wednesday. Maintaining teaching schedule helps me to keep moving.
