In light of the nationwide obesity epidemic, and our recent crowning as the third fattest country in the world -- we should get out and do something.

And we're just about out of excuses not to get in shape. There are virtually endless fitness options now, and the Berkshires has the added advantage of the great outdoor spaces at our disposal. So we want the whole book to showcase the myriad, sometimes random, fitness options out there, and demonstrate that there's some kind of activity to suit just about anyone's definition of fun.

So we asked five brave souls to explore some kind of uncommon physical activity and write about it. The activity did not have to be super-extreme or weird. We just wanted to get a good variety.
