BuiltLean Digest June 2013

  • Print Friendly and PDFPrint

This June, things have kept changing at BuiltLean. Not only did we hit another month of daily content, as well as bring on another great contributor, but are working hard behind the scenes to include new types of articles and start incorporating more video into the mix.

You can certainly write about exercise to explain it, but seeing a visual is powerful and helpful in showing exactly how you are supposed to move your body. And, as always, the point of creating all our content is to make fitness as easy and manageable as possible to everyone who lives a busy life and wants to keep fit. We hope that as summer continues to heat up, the information you find on BuiltLean helps you stick to your fitness plan and inspires you to find new ways to enjoy exercise and take care of your body.
