September is almost here and that means Back to School! Preschool to college, parents and students all need help to make this the healthiest school year yet. Check out our tips below:

Find An Exercise That You Enjoy. If you hate what you're doing, you will find every excuse in the world to avoid it. The Gym has lots of classes and equipment that you will enjoy, works for your lifestyle, and fits your schedule. And you can get help from a trainer for a personalized workout.

Schedule Your Workouts. Most parents need a to-do list and schedule to stay sane. Plan your workout times in advance and put it on a calendar or to-do list. Then use the power of technology to remind you it's time to exercise.

Eat Food You Like. You won't keep to a healthy diet if you don't enjoy the food you eat. Meal planning will help you meet your goals, will save time, stress, and ensure that you eat healthy. Remember lots of veggies, less sugar and junk.

Find a workout buddy. A buddy holds you accountable, workouts are more fun, and will maybe create a little fun competition. If a workout buddy isn't an option, there are accountability sites like Gym HYPERLINK ""Pact and stick HYPERLINK ""K that can help you with your goals. Find what works for you and get started!
