It’s no secret HSM workouts are challenging and deliver results. But sometimes a girl needs a little extra motivation. The HSM summer challenge was just what I needed to get myself ready for a family vacation to France. I’m not saying it was easy to take 20 classes in the month of June. I ventured outside of my comfort zone trying new instructors, new classes, and new times. I discovered Essentials can be just as challenging as Advanced PC and Madison and Sarah can really keep you motivated early on a Saturday morning. But the extra effort paid off. I lost 5 pounds and gained extra energy and confidence. And when we left for our trip I felt Paris Perfect!
