On this week's episode of 20 Minute Fitness we had the amazing chance with David Wood a Marine Corp Veteran and founder of Virtus Outdoor Tactical Gear. We talk with David about his history of being in the Marines and how that has shaped his relationship with fitness. Along with how his service in the Marines and heavy interest in extreme sports lead him to create Virtus, his own tactical clothing company. While on the topic of extreme sports, David tells us about some of his most intense stories from the adventures abroad.
