A  true explorer, Brandon has walked literally thousands of miles throughout the world to deliver a message of peace. Through his travels, Brandon has learned that true peace comes from within, and most often enhanced by the simple act of walking in the great outdoors.

Lifestyle - Make Your Vacation a True Adventure!

Are you looking for a way to get more fitness AND adventure in you life?  Turn your vacation into an athletic event!
 
I love travel! I would rather spend my time and money on a great adventure than on "stuff." Things do not create great experiences, people and places do! Maybe you are the type of person who loves to blend travel with fitness experiences -- If you’ve ever dreamt of completing a marathon and going on an African Safari - you can do both!

From Triathlons in South Africa, to rafting the Futulafu in Chile, to swimming to Alcatraz and back in San Francisco, fitness enthusiasts are traveling to the most scenic places on earth to compete and vacation at the same time. “Race vacations” are becoming more and more popular with couples and families.

Exercise and Altitude

No matter what your fitness level, significant changes in altitude pose challenges for your body, because of the reduced oxygen in the air.  Traveling above 5,000-6,000 feet can have immediate effects on our bodies.  If you take your training to an altitude that you are not used to -for example, if you routinely exercise at sea level and travel to an elevation of 8,000 feet—you’ll need to decrease the intensity of your sessions to allow your body to adapt.

Stay Fit on Vacation with "Sight Jogging"

Staying fit on the road is a big challenge for most of us.  Let’s face it, that treadmill, step machine and weight bench is tucked away in the hotel basement for a reason...it's BORING!
 
On your next trip, why not sweat and sightsee at the same time?
Trade in the treadmill for a running tour, where you can go on a run with your own personal trainer and tour guide. Imagine an early morning workout in Rome—On a route coving over 2000 years of history. Down the Spanish Steps, through the heart city, across the Tiber River, and straight to the magnificent St.Peter’s Basilica.
