Bod Pod
Wednesday, January 18, 2017      5 comments

Have you ever done the Bod Pod? I did it today. It's a type of large "case" large enough for a person to sit in similar (to me) to a space capsule. I'm lucky enough to have access to the military base closeby. They have a Wellness Center with... Read more
