There’s a spring shape-up bug going around. Just about everybody has been bitten by it. If you’re feeling it too, you’re not alone. It’s that time of year when we want to jumpstart our health programs and get a head start on summer.
For some of us that means enlisting in boot camp and getting our sweat on. For others it means a regimented detox program of juiced greens and berries. While for some it means packing a bag (a Fitmark Bag), unplugging and heading for the hills.
For most fitness enthusiasts, getting away from the usual rise-and-grind routine of working out at the local gym can be a little scary. You want to get away, but you don’t want to miss a workout. That’s why you need to check out these amazing fitness getaways.
