May is the perfect time of year to get fit for summer and create healthy lifestyle habits.

We have created the “Walk Every Day In May Challenge” to help you improve your health and get fit for summer.  Being active daily should be a priority if you want to live a healthy life. Not just a few times a week. You also don’t have to do an hour of cardio or be on a piece of cardio equipment to get physically fit.  I walk daily with my husband in our hilly neighborhood and sprint a few times a week outside on a hill, flat ground, the treadmill or the stairs. Fitness should be fun and enjoyable! Besides increasing mobility and endurance in my legs, I am improving my ability to burn fat as fuel. My daily walk has improved the quality of my life by allowing me to connect with my husband while I disconnect with the computer and work. 

After completing this challenge, you will be energized and feeling good about yourself for creating a healthy lifestyle habit! 

What you need to do:

1. Walk a mile every day in May. Try to do a mile or more around your neighborhood. It should only take you 15-20 mins/mile depending on how fast you walk or if you are walking on an incline or flat ground. Here are some tips:

  1. Take the stairs and time it. Try to do a total of 15-20 mins a day. You can break it up and keep track of your time.
  2. Make a date with a neighbor to walk before or after work every day for 15-20 mins.
  3. Plan a walk and talk meeting around the block with a coworker. 
  4. Use your lunch break to take a 15-20 minute walk.
  5. Keep in mind that once you make this a daily habit (in 21 days), it will be hard to imagine your life without it!

3. Share Your Experience on Instagram and tag us! @imfitandhappy

Kelly Weston

Working as a personal trainer and group fitness/ Pilates instructor in Los Angeles has been a dream come true. With 20 years of dance background, and graduating from college as captain of my dance team ranked #1 in the country, I was inspired to get into Fitness as a career and moved on my own from Maryland to California.
I now have more than a decade of experience in fitness and a strong list of qualifications and certifications. I’m an NASM certified personal trainer (National Academy of Sports Medicine), Certified Primal Blueprint Expert (Primal/ Paleo/ Ancestral Health, Lifestyle, Nutrition, & Fitness Expert) and Certified in Classical-Progressive Pilates Reformer, Chair, Cadillac and Mat from Pilates Sports Center. I’m also certified in several barre workouts, pre and postnatal fitness, and a specialist in Heart Rate Performance. I’ve helped people of all ages and levels, including Hollywood celebrities, pre and post-natal mommies, and pro athletes reach their health and fitness goals. I love to teach a challenging, fun, intense workout while I focus a lot on form and mind/ body connection. I’m confident that you and I will make a great team!
