Get Fit And Healthy For Summer (And Beyond!)

So summer is rolling around pretty darn quickly, and if you haven't already been working feverishly on priming your body for posing on the beach, it's never too late to get started.  Not that Fitness Guru endorses fad diets or lousy workout regimes, but putting a bit of extra work to tone up for the summer is most people's goal.

The fact is though, that getting a 'beach ready' body is all well and good, but the real skill is maintaining it throughout the year.  Rather than a few quick fixes, it should be more about adopting a healthy lifestyle and exercise habits so that you can lift up your t shirt and reveal a chisseled six pack even in the depths of winter.  Inside of course, unless you're incredibly manly.  Or Bear Grylls.

With that said, here are some superb articles from around the web that you should definitely check out and pay attention to.  Everyone has their own personal goals, but there's nothing wrong with a bit of general info.  Read on!
