POV: You want to get a workout in, but your muscles are sore.

For days when you want to keep your body moving but aren't up for the intensity of your usual routine, fitness coach Beverley Cheng has you covered.

In this video from her series Fit for Me, Beverley will lead you through a 25-minute session focused on building mobility and strengthening the core. With crunches, holds and lots of stretching, you'll have a chance to work through any stiffness and tightness so you can leave the mat feeling stronger — and more relaxed.
