Fitness Tips For Travelling

Whether you’re on a vacation or on a business trip, it can often be hard to find the time to exercise when you’re away from home and your daily routine. Yet with the wide range of transportable fitness equipment available on the market and with the help of a little improvisation, you can now transform virtually any space into a gym.

BOB’s Perspective

Another day, just standing around taking a beating so my friends can all burn these calories and do their Big Hit workouts. What about ME, what about MY needs? No one ever stops to say; Hey BOB, how’s your day? They come in here with their YOBO classes, kicking and punching me...
