Coach Julia McCoy from Legacy Traditional School-North Chandler Campus has created an excellent home workout routine for our athletes. Just because we need to stay home does not mean we cannot keep fit. Get motivated with this day by day routine that you can do with minimal equipment. If you do need weights, items around the house such as water bottles, and canned goods can be a great substitute. If you aren’t ready to head back to the gym, then stay home and try this routine. Stay healthy and stay safe!
