August is here, and the summer heat isn’t letting up; in fact, it’s scorching outside. Last week we threw away our gym membership and have been doing our best to be our own personal gym, but our fitness regimen at the local park is drenching us in sweat. Then, while we were watching the Olympics and ogling the insanely fit bodies of Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte, inspiration hit. It’s time to take a dip in the pool. Below are links to incredible pool exercises that will get you in shape just as fast as sweating it out on land. So whether you are at the beach, a hotel or in your own backyard, there is no reason to stop working out simply because it is hot out.
