My Aaptiv Story: Lauren Donald Shares Her Fitness Journey

Welcome to #MyAaptivStory! We’ve been so impressed by the stories our awesome members have shared about how they’ve transformed their habits and routines and taken control of their workouts and wellness, and we wanted to give them the chance to tell the world, in their own words, how Aaptiv helps them fuel their fitness journey. This week Lauren Donald shares her story. Where do you find your fitness and wellness motivation? I am motivated by setting an example for my kids. While my workout time is my “me” time, it is also important for my kids to see that I value taking care of myself physically and mentally. I also get motivation from other busy moms finding time for themselves through wellness. I often remind myself, “Someone busier than you just worked out.  You can make it work.” What’s your favorite type of music to work out to and why? If it has a beat, I can run to it!  I love throwback pop and hip hop the most, though. Tell us about your fitness …
