“Stamina is the strength and energy needed to exert oneself for an extended period of time. The word most commonly refers to the exertion needed for physical activities like exercise and sports. However, stamina can also refer to the mental exertion needed to perform a task or get through a difficult situation. Improving either type of stamina (or both!) is a great choice if you’re interested in living and feeling healthier.”
Looking to build your stamina? We’ve got the classes for you!
