MOAB, Utah - May 14, 2014 - PRLog -- Moab, UT, – Taking a breather from the daily routine is the essence of a good vacation. For fitness enthusiasts, this might mean leaving behind the neighborhood gym and personal trainer but it doesn’t have to mean foregoing cross-fit workouts.

The Moab Adventure Center ( provides a one-stop planning and fulfillment resource for a wide spectrum of outdoor activities that can help keep minds and bodies in shape when away from the gym.
