Behind the Scenes

Commitment to Exercise

This photo I ran across recently reminds me of how creative U.S. troops are getting with fitness in the field.

Last year, I did a story about soldiers in Iraq who made a DIY gym. The soldier I communicated with at the time said keeping exercise equipment up and running in the desert can be a challenge, especially cardio machines. I guess nothing can keep some folks from working out, no matter where in the world they are!
