1-Day Tour


A typical day in Taipei starts earlier than you think. 
          Amidst the first ray of dawn,
          Taipei's worker bees limber up in the outdoor squares 
          of National Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall,
          Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall and other popular parks or public lawns. 
          Whether it's calisthenics, folk dance or Tai-chi 
          people of all ages exercise side by side 
          in a tapestry of diversity unique to Taipei.

Work Out with Trainers
Work Out with TrainersAdrian Pilgrim -【Just do it !】
Romans had a saying that goes: "mens sana in corpore sano". It translates from Latin as "a healthy mind in a healthy body". Taking good care of your body nurtures a healthy mind. The connection between mind and body is so profound and runs so deep in us that the way we treat one of them reflects directly on the other. Taking care of our body is one of the best way to clear and keep our mind and emotions at peace and in a healthy balance!
