The newest fitness craze simply MUST be a hoax.  In fact, if it was April 1st, I would absolutely believe this is a spoof.

But alas, it is not.

The latest fitness craze is crawling.

Yes, like a baby... crawling.  According to the Washington Post, "crawling is the new plank" when it comes to working out and strengthening your core.

As a matter of fact, this weekend in Washington DC there will be crawling instruction and crawling races on the lawn of the Washington Monument.

It makes me wonder if they wil have to add a new lane at the gym.  One for joggers, one for walkers and a cushy carpeted lane for crawlers.
