My First Venice “Client”

If you have been reading my blog, you know that I spent the last 3 weeks in Venice, Fl. While at a “social” in the condo complex, I met a renter who brought up that she likes working out, and has not found a challenging workout in the area. She had been doing workouts in her condo by herself, but still could not get the workout she got from her trainer back home. I took this opportunity to offer her a workout session at the park right down the road.

I am so passionate about sharing my outdoor workout ideas, and I was fortunate for this opportunity. When renting in Florida during the winter months, why would you NOT want to do most of your workout outside, instead of at a YMCA?

I did not know her fitness level, so I decided to just have a general idea of exercises to do, ones which can be done at all levels.
