This week we want you to create a project that includes some fitness equipment, then simply tag it #RookiesWeeklyDrills and #FitnessEquipment.

The New Year always gets everyone thinking about resolutions and how to improve their lives. Getting fit and losing weight always tops the charts and the fitness industry loves us for that. Your challenge this week is to create a project that includes a piece of fitness equipment. You can attempt something simple like a dumbbell, yoga mat or skipping rope. If you have a little extra time and want a challenge, you could create an exercise bike, a rowing machine or a treadmill.

To get some feedback on your work-in-progress project before you submit it, head over to Discord channel and chat with other artists having a crack. To see all the Weekly Drill projects just follow this link.
