Do you have a 317 memory that you would like to share?
“During the New You Challenge, we did a warm up of burpees to the song Roxanne. I felt like I was going to die and suffered from PTSD, didn’t want to ever hear that song! Ironically, a few weeks ago I downloaded the song and have tried to do the same exercise at home!”
