Meet Out-of-Town Friends at the Gym, Not the Bar!

 

It’s great having Fitness Friends across the country so when you land in their city you can connect at the gym or track. The formula is simple. Instead of meeting at bars to catch up make a plan to workout at a health enhancing location while vibing with one another. Collectively, you will keep one another accountable.

Undefeated Vegan Arm Wrestler Kimatni D. Rawlins

5-0 at the Auto Show for the Vegan Pro!

The is the look of despair when you’re about to lose an arm wrestling match to a Vegan Cyborg, a Fit Father, and a member of the Eagles’ Bird Gang. I didn’t hold back at the Washington Auto Show against five challengers that were half my age of 44 or much bigger as I heckled them on plant-based health and fitness during consecutive defeats just to prove how superior veganism can be. One dude came back to try the left arm and met the same fate. Muscle endurance is key in such competitions in addition to plant consumption. I’m always open for more and ready to defend my honor if I have any challengers? Dilly Dilly!

Muay Thai Boxing Training in Bangkok

In Bangkok, Thailand we had to complete the “5th Annual Nomadic Journey” with a bang (no, not partying) at Krudam Gym for a session of Muay Thai with some of the city’s finest instructors. We have much more respect for these boxers after learning just a small fraction of the trade and then watching an actual match later that night. Now only if we can emulate their kick speeds which seem faster than their jabs. Impressive!
