Welcome to the all new ExerCYse Blog. Here you will find interesting articles about physical activity along with some helpful tips to help you lead a healthy, happy life! To get started I'm posting a link to one of my favorite articles of all time. This was originally published on another blogging website, Lifehacker, but still includes many relevant factoids and helpful information. This year the American College of Sports Medicine published a study about the top fitness trends for 2015. They found that push-ups, planks, squats, and other body weight exercises will be the most popular type of workout this upcoming year. Body weight exercises can be done by people of all fitness levels and don't require a gym membership or expensive equipment. They also work! Seriously, we can't make this any easier for you.
