Being stuck on an Island with only a towel is actually pretty cool! More on that crazy story some other time.
Not sure if you've noticed but it's Christmas in July here at Free Workouts Guide. One lucky winner gets to choose 1 of the 13 prizes below and there's still one more prize to come.
To enter to win just answer the question that was posed to me by the Tucson Citizen for an article in their Body Plus section: "If you knew you were going to be stuck on an island or in the desert for one month, and you could take only one piece of fitness equipment with you to stay fit, what would it be?"
Here's what I chose and what they quoted me saying in the paper, "I choose a towel because it's a metaphor for keeping it simple and keeping it fun. A towel can be used to train every inch of your body and if you're not using it to wipe away some serious sweat, then you know you need to increase the intensity."
As many of you guys know I believe that fitness needs to be fun and intense. I also believe it must be practical and in my opinion bodyweight exercises on or with a towel are as practical as it gets but there is no right or wrong answer because whatever you choose has to work for you.
So tell me what you would choose and enter to win this week's prize, a copy of my favorite Fitness ANYWHERE workout plan or one of the prizes below. Contest ends Aug. 5, 2010.
BTW, if you need a killer towel workout the two videos here feature some really great exercises you can do anywhere. Be sure to try the single leg palm tree towel row!
