San Diego Beach Workouts

San Diego Beach Workout

Fitness is important for hundreds of reason, but not all of us are hard wired for the Gym. In light of this, I found the beach was the one place where I could put in the time to push myself physically while enjoying the sun, the water, and the waves.
