Mike’s Global Playground

Mike’s Global Playground, our sister site, is a project together to increase awareness about all of the fun and different types of exercise all over the world. The idea is that fitness opportunities can be found anywhere, and most importantly, outside of the gym walls.

Our fitness guru Mike Fitch and his small production crew, including producer and project partner Karen Mahar, travel to a new city each month to feature a style of exercise that is specific to that particular city. Leading up to the adventure, Mike has the task of attempting to learn that style of exercise or sport for the episode, demonstrating that anyone can do it!

Each “episode” includes much more than just the video. You’ll also find a photo gallery, blog entries, a featured band, a restaurant review, and links to resources, companies, and adventure specialists featured in the production. Check out the episodes below:
