The Most Un-Millennial Thing I Have Done: I Joined a Gym

I’m not sure what the life cycle of your own fitness regimen has looked like across the years, but here’s a brief synopsis of mine: I played a lot of sports growing up. A lot. Thanks to a unique combination of ballet, track, cross-country and intense soccer playing I had very well-endowed calf muscles by the age of 14. Enter college.

Last summer when I impulsively dubbed the season #BestSummerEver, I learned a lesson that really struck a chord in me and has stuck with me ever since. There was something to setting an intention for the season, a mantra or goal of sorts, that set the tone for the months to come and really helped us to make the most of that time.
