Exercising by practicing wilderness survival skills

Take your exercise seriously by putting it to practical use. If you’re going to exercise, you might as well have an outlet for it, perfect for the outdoors. Get in shape and test yourself by being in a wilderness survival situation. See how good your exercise really is and if it’s not, it may be time to change it up.
Here’s a guy who has done just that — taking exercise to the streets or, in this case, to the wilderness.

Does your fitness program include navigation, food preparation instruction, hostage simulation, and wilderness survival skills? Should it?
