Get Healthy! Join the 30-day Squat Challenge

Join the indoor squat challenge to get - and stay - in shape.

With all of us spending more time indoors, we need inspiration to stay or get back in shape… we can do this by simply adding one daily exercise, like squats.

Squats tone and strengthen our legs, while also lifting our glutes… whether done daily or once a week. The reason? Our entire lower body - quads, hamstrings, and glutes -  are activated with this simple excercise.

The best thing about squats? You can do them anywhere and at any time. Plus they’re great for your body in lots of other ways ways:

1. Burn calories

Squats can tone your booty quick! They help build muscle mass, which will increase your metabolism and help your body burn calories faster. Muscle tissue burns more calories than body fat even when you're at rest!

2. Prevent Injuries

With squats, you’ll strengthen your body and gain better mobility, flexibility, and balance to help you do other physical tasks in your active life, with less risk of getting hurt. 

3. Low-impact

Lots of exercises can wreak havoc on your joints over time, but squats (when done properly) won’t damage your knees, and might actually strengthen them.

4. Run faster

Squatting can make you faster at sprinting! This research found that runners with bigger leg muscles excelled at short-distance running because they could apply more force into the ground.

5. Say goodbye to cellulite

Many of us fear cellulite, but here's a way to ease your fears. You can help reduce cellulite by improving your circulation, something squats are great for.

6. Improve your posture

It takes a lot of poise to keep proper form while doing a squat! The more you practice, you’ll improve your body posture in your back, chest, and shoulders.

Before you begin, make sure you’re using the proper form. We found this how-to video helpful.
