2. Workout Plans Board: Use for inspiration, products and exercise plans.

3. Daily Inspiration Board: "I love trying to challenge myself to constantly do better in many different ways. Looking at my Daily Inspiration Board each morning puts me in a mindset of gratitude," says Mitzi.

4. In-The-Know Board: "This board includes all things healthy. For example, you might see a fantastic article online about sleep–pin it to this board. One of my most popular pins on this board shows exactly why different parts of your body need water to function optimally.
