I’ve been involved with aSweatLife since 2016, and I’ve loved their mission to connect people around a central passion for fitness and fun. Much of their organization is around events, and like all in the fitness industry, times are weird and tough!

They’re hosting awesome digital workouts each week, and they have a curated calendar of other friends teaching live as well. Although they are technically Free.99, I strongly encourage you to Venmo the trainer $5-10!

They also offer great workshops for topics such as doodling, DIY spa products, resume revamping, and crystals — all virtual!

Above all, be kind to yourself and others. #Everythingisbetterwithfriends!
