    Let’s talk about some wanderlust! Fitness and travel are two things that I’d absolutely love to intertwine. While possible, I’ll admit, it’s not the easiest thing to do. Enter the concept of a dream fitness vacation. I recently came across Tommy John, who is currently promoting their “Go Anywhere” line with a mission to make sure people are comfortable no matter the destination or activity. Let’s jump into it.
