Discussing :: A Simple Fitness Plan for Travelers

‘A bear, however hard he tries, grows tubby without exercise.’ ~A.A. Milne I’m on vacation in London right now, and will be in Paris this afternoon — a three-week trip that has messed up all my fitness routines. And yet I’m still getting fitter every day. Vacations have a horrible way of messing up our routines — we eat a ton of rich food, are too busy to go to the gym, and it’s easy to let workouts fall to the wayside.
