How long have you sat today? No, really, have you only gotten up to get a snack? Have you gotten up to play with the kids?  Those long spells on your behind cause a slew of health problems and keep us from really connecting with family and loved ones.

We want to help you get out of that man-made box you call a home or office and step outside more often. Our 3 easy steps move you off the couch into the great outdoors. What will you find there?  Everything you have ever dreamed of!  Ok can't promise that but you will find peace, adventure, clarity, and a family bond stronger than you could imagine.  Take that first step with us and you won't be sorry!
