Healthy At Home – Indoor Cardio with Kimpossible

Springtime is when I like to focus on body health for the year. It feels less like a doomed-to-fail New Year’s Resolution, and more of a reward-oriented system: I get to rock my summer clothes with confidence, and I can make sure I’m strong enough to keep up with all the warm weather activities that I enjoy.I’m a big supporter of total body confidence AND overall health, both mental and physical; no matter what a person’s size, weight, or skill level, I think it’s important to elevate your mood, get stronger, and give your system what it needs to be the best it can be. So I’m going to do a few blog posts about staying Healthy at Home this season.

Some links for cheap equipment (not necessary, but nice to have) are at the end of the post.

Look, here’s a video I edited of my grandparents, mom, and uncle at Seaside Heights in NJ, 1956. Filmed by my late grandfather, Didi.

If you’ve got family archives on outdated tech it’s pretty easy to enjoy and share old movies in digital  format. Here’s how I did it.
