Create a Fitness Bucket List

 In Blog defines a “bucket list” as: a list of things a person wants to achieve or experience, as before reaching a certain age or dying. 

And there are all sorts of bucket lists out there! There are personal bucket lists. There are seasonal family bucket lists. There are vacation destination bucket lists. There are reading bucket lists. You name it – and there’s probably a bucket list for it!

So, why not create a fitness bucket list? Yes, a list of activities and things related to health and fitness that you hope to accomplish! Not only will a fitness bucket list keep you on the path to good health, but it can challenge you to try new things or achieve goals you never thought possible!
