It is a common goal for most Academy girls to work out regularly, maintain a healthy diet, and to generally live a healthy lifestyle. However, with rigorous academic and extracurricular schedules, it can be hard to find time to go to the gym. Using an online workout program can prove to be beneficial, as it can be accessed from the comfort of your own home, on your own time, and most of them also include meal plans and recipes to help structure an all around healthy lifestyle. Below are ten of the best online fitness programs:
