2020 has shown us many different sides of life – the good, the bad, the ugly, and the unexpected. We have had to resort to creative means to solve life’s daily problems. One of these is the topic of our fitness. We are lucky to live in beautiful Asheville, where it is relatively easy to social distance and exercise outside. Nonetheless, many people are missing their gyms and group classes. Even so, some are now wondering if they can save the cost and time of attending a fitness center. We have great news for you – you can exercise at home and get a great workout! Exercising at home means that you must push yourself to a limit that is apt for your body, age, and level of fitness, but with consistency and discipline, you will see results. Stop by and see Dr. K for a thorough consultation and personalized plan to achieve your health and fitness goals, but you can begin now with one of these super effective workouts listed below! Remember, not every kind of workout is suited for everyone (especially the higher intensity ones), and if you suffer from certain conditions, we recommend you consult with Dr. K and your family doctor first.

Remember that achieving optimal holistic health is a combination of your diet, exercise, habits, stress-management, and of course, a chiropractic care routine!
