Dump the Plump

{Please read the following in your best drill instructor voice} Ladies (both literal and figurative), the holidays are over and it’s time to get your nasty bodies off the couch, throw away those Christmas cookies and get back to your pre-holiday figure. Marines don’t make excuses and we won’t let you either. Use these pins to motivate you to get out there and run, walk, lift and swim your way to be fit to fight.

Complete with cammies and gear, Marines take swimming to a whole new level.

It's not about what you CAN'T do. It's about what you CAN do.

Stretching out your muscles after a workout will help prevent unnecessary injury.

Tire flipping is a workout that will leave your muscles burning.

Having a workout buddy can help you push yourself to the next level.

Sports are a great way to get a workout while having fun.

    This is truly incredible. What is more incredible is that there is a woman (I believe) helping pull!

  • U.S. Marines

    Yes, you're right. It is a female Marine.

    My son and I used to (push) my car for a three mile run/jog when he was a teen as part of a work out program. He didn't care for me much at times back then, he understands now though that's what matters. Simper Fi

    Thank you to all those who serve our blessed country!

Swimming can be a great break from your usual cardio workouts.

Morning runs are a great way to start a productive day.

Getting out for a jog with friends is a great way to get cardio workouts into your day.
