Over the summer, one of my longtime friends proposed a trip to me; to kayak from Boca Grande to the Keys. The trip would take 9 days and we would paddle anywhere from 20 to 30 miles each day. Being out of shape could present a pretty big obstacle for this once in a lifetime opportunity. As soon as I committed to the trip I knew I had to get back in shape so I chose to do so with Fit 4 Life. The strength training I did for the next few months was something I had never taken part in before. I played football and soccer in high school but was never in the best physical shape. Without Fit 4 Life, I know that I wouldn’t have lasted more than a few days on the water, and I was able to turn that opportunity into the experience of a lifetime!
