GETTING KITTED UP
HERE’S ALL YOU REALLY NEED TO GET MOVING
If you’ve made a decision to start training for an event, or just want to get in better shape, it can be tempting to splurge on new gear, a gym membership and a shiny fitness tracker. But in reality, you only need a few key things to get moving, avoid injury and stay motivated.
