POV: Spring is here, and you're ready to get your body moving.
"What better way to celebrate this warmer weather and get ourselves back into movement than with a rejuvenating workout session?" said fitness coach Beverley Cheng. And whether you're easing back into physical activity or are just looking for something on the more mellow side, this invigorating yet low-intensity routine could be exactly what you're after.
