5 Reasons To Keep Your Summer Workout From Going Into Hibernation

For many, working out is a temporary means to weight loss for some life event- a wedding, vacation, reunion, etc.- where the goal is to impress in that dress, bathing suit, or for the countless photos that will be taken and posted for all to see. Usually this motivation does not turn into a healthy habit of physical activity and all the momentum is lost once the goal is reached. But what if it did become a lifestyle instead of a fleeting hobby?

Meet Brianne and Ashton Eaton: Olympic Power Couple!

He grew up in a small town in Oregon while she grew up down the road in Saskatchewan, Canada. He is a tirelessly hard worker with no fear and she is an ultra-fierce competitor that doesn’t take no for an answer. Together they are Ashton and Brianne Eaton… They met for the first time on Brianne’s recruiting trip to the University of Oregon. He thought she was the coolest girl he’d ever had a conversation with. After over 5 months together (part of which was at the Pan-American Games in Brazil…no big deal) Ashton finally mustered up enough courage to ask Brianne out, and the rest is history. The two were married in 2013 and have since been busy traveling for competitions and training for the 2016 Olympics Games.

I woke up before everyone else, smuggled the newly purchased diamond ring outside and began to search for a well-hidden, yet easily accessible place to hide a small black box in a 2-door Jeep Wrangler. I thought about the jack compartment, but contemplated how to maneuver it if we actually got a flat tire. With black duct tape I decided to secure the ring up under my seat—a stealth job James Bond would have been proud of.
