These past few weeks have been fitness focused. Growing up I was always
a NARP, (non-athletic regular person). I danced for a few years and took karate

Berry cultivates a healthy, fit atmosphere by offering a plethora of
opportunities. The Cage offers Zumba, yoga, water workouts, kettlebells; we
have almost 40 miles of hiking, bike and horse trails, not to mention the vast
spectrum of intramural sports. Any Any has a new accountability program, Weapons of Mass Reduction, for those
getting into shape and those maintaining their fitness. For smartphone users,
there’s an app for that. I use Nike Running and My Fitness Pal to track my runs
and log my daily food intake.
