What is a Bucket List? A bucket list is a list of things that you want to do before you die. Some people make bucket lists as a way to document their life goals and aspirations. Others make them as a way to live life more fully.

Quick Tip For Creating Your Health and Fitness Bucket List: Start by writing down everything that comes to mind, no matter how small it may seem. Consider including things that other people would enjoy doing with you, not just things that only suit your interests. When you'e done, share the list with friends and family for further inspiration.
