Finding the time, money, and inspiration to explore new activities can be daunting. It’s too easy to spend our time and money getting fit inside a gym. But The Turning Leaf’s innovative outdoor adventure challenge program is a blast, especially if you’re not an enthusiastic gym rat. Sign up for this program, and you’ll spend five weeks pursuing fitness via all kinds of fun activities, all with gentle encouragement from personal trainer Harriott Parker. She’ll have you swimming in the brisk waters of the Atlantic Ocean, doing downward dog poses on the sands of Folly Beach, and riding a Carolina Stepper across the Ravenel bridge. When Parker says challenge, she means challenge. Her program is an exhilarating way to escape your routine, get outside, and push yourself farther than you thought you could go.
