20 Photos to Inspire You to Go HouseBoating

Share:   My first trip to Lake Powell, AZ was amazing.  I loved the wide open space, not buildings, no tech. I felt so small on this big lake. The scenery was unlike anything I’d ever seen, since I’ve grown up on the beach. No palm trees here but instead, beautiful red toned rocks that reflect the sunshine against blue skies and deep blue and turquiose water.  I loved waking up every morning to sip coffee on the patio and look at the view which was ever changing, different every…

Swept Away Resort, Negril Jamaica

Share:Swept Away Resort Negril, Jamaica Filming location: BodyShaping ESPN While filming BodyShaping for ESPN, we stayed at  Swept Away in Negril Jamaica. What a beautiful resort. It is an all inclusive resort with powdery white sand and turquoise blue ocean. The food was local fish and chicken with Jamaican spices. The only downside was that meals were only served a specific time during the day, so if you are a bodybuilder or fitness person who is used to eating frequently you’re out of luck. The people in Jamaica are wonderful,…
