Description: Starbucks President Michelle Gass wakes up at 4:30 a.m. every morning to run. Vogue editor Anna Wintour is on the tennis court by 6:00 a.m. every morning before work. Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Group, frequently starts his day with a morning run.

What do these highly successful people know that we need to know? People who exercise are more productive. When was the last time you saw a breakthrough in your word count numbers?

Mental Advantage - Studies have proven that people who exercise are 23% more productive on those days then when they don't exercise.  Increased Memory and cognitive ability to learn - People learn vocabulary words 20% faster after intense exercise than low-intensity activity. What author doesn't need more word variety in their stories.  Bigger & Better Brain: Exercise increases gray matter in your brain and actually builds new networks and pathways.

Creativity Boost - There's an amazing chain reaction that occurs when you elevate your heart rate: increase blood flow, more oxygen and glucose to your brain, several key hormones are released that aid in the parts of your brain that spark creativity and imagination. Think like Sherlock Holmes.

This 5-Day Challenge will get you moving everyday. We'll talk about the proper equipment and gear to where, when and how to get your steps in everyday. 

  1. Day 1: Gearing Up - Activity Tracker, Proper footwear and fitness apparel dos and don'ts 
  2. Day 2: Walk in the great outdoors - City living, suburbia, nature and paths 
  3. Day 3: Walk inside - Gym vs at-home, Treadmills and walking programs
