The Situation

To get the most out of outdoor sports such as hiking, rock climbing and mountain biking, you need to have a strong core. Rippling ab muscles not only look good but they also help get you over that one last ridge, up that last exhausting pitch, and through the end-of-the-run doubts that can plague the best of us.

Who better to help us tighten up our cores than Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino from the MTV hit reality show, “Jersey Shore.” That's right folks, the Situation is going to help you get the most out of your time in the woods.

The app provides illustrations of core-strengthening exercises plus a location finder to find a workout place, get a tan and do laundry. (GTL, Gym, Tanning, Laundry — it's a Jersey thing.) Suck it up and get ready to hurt, because you don't get as strong as The Situation without a little (abdominal) pain.
